Fine Feathers Kombucha in Japanese television network FNN’s short piece on the difference between Kombucha in the US and Japanese Traditional Kombu-cha
July 6, 2015

While preparing for our kombucha-making workshop (see previous post below), the Japanese-based television company Fuji News Network contacted us out of the blue and requested to film our workshop and do an interview about kombucha and the process. Apparently, in Japan, “kombu-cha” refers to a tea made from kelp.

IMG_20150630_113641The Japanese call kombucha “kocha kinoko” meaning “tea fungus” (fungus, of course, being a misnomer).

The filming crew and reporter visited our facility in Long Beach and filmed for about an hour in late June, while we talked about the process, the ingredients, and different teas used in the production. The reporter, Ikuko Yuge, even asked if she can eat some of the SCOBY cultures. Pleasantly excited at the request, Jay provided some and shared a probiotic snack with her.

While the video is in Japanese (our interviews are overdubbed by a translator), it still makes for an entertaining watch. Entertaining, especially with the lower left part of the screen showing the reactions of the studio anchors reacting to the SCOBY-eating part of the segment.

First Kombucha-making Workshop held at Grassroots Natural Market & Kitchen in South Pasadena
June 26, 2015

Our friends at Grassroots Natural Market & Kitchen in South Pasadena had been very insistent on us leading a workshop on kombucha-making. After setting the date for June 25, we began preparing as we didn’t know what to expect.

The workshop was nonetheless very well attended (some had the misfortune of having to sit outside, as the designated space had reached full capacity) and, although scheduled to be an hour and a half, turned into a very interactive and enjoyable three-hour gathering in which we covered all the basics of home-made kombucha brewing  and then some.
