Culture, Scoby or Mushroom?
Kombucha Teas history runs deep and long.
According to various sources, the first tea of it's kind originated in China, and due to it's amazing healing properties, earned the name The Elixer of Life.
Some people also refer to the tea as Manchurian Mushroom Tea, however they are the same.
History of The Elixir
One of the things that I find most amazing about the culture or scoby is the fact that it remained to exist and continued to be shared by people. Think about it, the scoby had to travel by horse or foot in a time of no planes, trains or automobiles!!
I truly believe that it was the healing properties alone that spurred its continued existence. When a village heard of a tea that could heal and cure almost any ailment, they would go to great lengths to obtain a scoby or culture. Once you have a healthy scoby, there is tea for life!
