INTRODUCTION


Several books written about Kombucha state the first Recorded use of Kombucha Tea was during the Chinese Empire of the Tsing Dynasty in 221 BC. It was referred to as "The remedy for immortality," "The Divine Tsche." It has also been referred to as "the elixer of life." It has been known by several different names, such as: Fungus japonicas, The tea fungus, Fungojapon, Kombucha, Indo-Japanese tea fungus, Pichia fermentans, Cembuya orientalis, Combuchu; Tschambucco, Volga spring, Mo-Gu, Champignon de longue vie, Tea Kvas or Teakwass, Kwassan, Kargasok Tea, Kocha kinoko, and Manchurian mushroom tea.

Much of the Kombucha  information I've presented in the Kombucha FAQ has been based on answers to questions which were posted over the Kombucha mailing list - by past and present members.

Many thanks to all contributors!
