If someone says "1/8 tsp TA", what is the TA?

TA is a type of starter culture.  The actual beastie is Streptococcus thermophilus, but it is branded and sold by Danisco as "TA 60" or "TA 61" both of which are different strains of the same bacteria.

It is a thermophile which means it works best at higher temperatures - 40-45oC

Is there a chart somewhere on this site that indicates standard abbreviations?

scasnerkay, there's also our Glossary, although I don't know what Danisco's TA stands for.

Could just be a name Danisco gave it. What does Kazu stand for? Maybe just a moniker.

I think Kazuhiro refers to the Instrument that must be played while the culture is added.   ???
