I have an article  on Kombucha ("The Fascination of Kombucha"), but it is  
rather long (34 KByte). If you would enjoy reading it, please e-mail me,  
and I will send it to you.

The article that was published in the American magazine "American Raum & Zeit" (now called "Explore" or Explore More") in 1991. This article is dedicated to all who want basic instruction on Kombucha. The article was written by me and translated from Ge
rman to English by the publisher of the magazine.
