My Home Grown Kombucha Scoby 自家培育红茶菌


I am into healthy eating, consuming a variety of foods and experimenting with many types of ingredients to feel good and maintain my health.

Chanced upon this ancient Chinese beverage when I was in China, the Chinese called it the "immortal health elixir". LOL

It is the Kombucha, a naturally fermented tea containing probiotic properties and other happy bacteria that can improve our digestive tract health and help to boost our immunity system. The most important benefit of drinking kombucha is its ability to detox the body.


To make kombucha tea, I need to grow a scoby.

My home grown scoby (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), the living home for the bacteria and yeast, will transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha that is low in calories and sugar.


This is the tea base for my Kombucha tea

Initially I felt nervous and unsure about growing bacteria and yeast at home, but after reading up on the subject and consulting a Chinese physician, I decided to try it.


Growing a successful scoby culture from scratch is an encouraging and awe-inspiring experience. Next comes the brewing of Kombucha tea.


Health benefits of Kombucha as a probiotic :

Helps treat gastrointestinal (GI) complications
Increases calcium absorption
Increases metabolism and helps weight loss
Reduces joint pain and inflammation
Helps prevent certain cancers, such as pancreatic, breast and colon cancer
Aids detoxification of the human body
Helps lower cholesterol
Helps control blood pressure


自己在家培育红茶菌,红茶水就变成酸酸甜甜的保健饮料了。

红茶菌是由红茶、白糖(或冰糖、蜂蜜)和水加菌种经发酵后制而成。

红茶菌富含维生素C、维生素B等营养素,并含有三种对人体有益的微生物(如酵母菌等),因此能调节人体生理机能,促进新陈代谢,帮助消化,防止动脉硬化,抗癌,养生强身,成为一种盛行全世界的养生保健饮料。

红茶菌在中国流传应用已有2000余年的历史,近些年国内外医学界应用红茶菌的实践表明,红茶菌能治疗多种慢性疾病,如高血压、动脉硬化、冠心病、糖尿病、便秘、痔疮、肥胖症、斑秃、白发、白内障、风湿性关节炎、胃炎、痢疾、贫血、核黄素缺乏等。

红茶菌只是一种营养饮料, 并不是包治百病的神药。
