I was just given a culture of 'combucha', a drink that I suppose oriental, done by a surface fermentation of a solution of saccharose in tea. 
The microorganism looks like a vinegar layer producing acetate, ethanol and CO2 at first glance. 
I suppose it is a kefir-like complex.

Thank you to answer to the above E-mail.
