One of my friends, knowing I like kombucha, brought back a can of dried kombucha from Japan. It is a small can of powder. Unfortunately, I cannot read Japanese and don't know how to use it.

How do you use dried kombucha? Is it a live culture?

Thanks

Are you sure it is powdered kombucha and not Konbucha (昆布茶, "kelp tea") which is a brownish beverage made from dried and powdered kombu "edible kelp"?
Sometimes konbucha is referred to as 'Japanese kombucha', not the same a kombucha mushroom tea.
