Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2014):
I purchased the kombucha tea starter culture and followed the directions to a T, to the point that I controlled the temperature of the area with a space heater set to 65-70. When the kombucha was supposed to be ready, what I found was an underdeveloped scoby and a cake of mold.

The kombucha I started from a bottled beverage turned out just fine. They were sitting right next to each other.

I will not buy another starter culture scoby. My $3.50 bottled beverage was a far more successful starter than the $20 (after shipping) kombucha tea starter culture.

Response from CFH: We recommend keeping 4 feet between cultures so that they do not cross-contaminate each other.
