Q: I forgot to save enough brewed tea to both store my culture. Can I use tea that has been in the refrigerator?

A: If your kombucha that is stored in the fridge is plain, then yes! As long as you didn't add any flavoring to it, it will be no problem to pull some out of the fridge, place it in a small jar with the culture (covering the jar with a cotton cover) and set it out on your counter for a night or two to warm back up. Once the starter tea has fully come back to room temp and "woken back up" so to speak, then it should be great to brew with!
