    My favorite kombucha is yerba mate. I have a question: My starter liquid and scoby originated
    from black tea so would all my yerba mate kt be considered a black tea base?

    Another scoby quickly grew on top, must be a good sign. I can still taste the sugar , does this
    mean the beneficial properties arn't there yet? It does reek like vinegar and stings the
    throat. Interes...

    I recently started brewing kombucha and in one of my 7 day old jars I have a 1/4 inch scoby
