Use this kit to also make great, homemade vinegar. Even better than apple cider vinegar!
⭐️ My cultures are created using a select mixture of organic green and black tea. This makes them ideal to brew Kombucha with your choice of black, green or a mixture of teas!
⭐️ Quick delivery! All packages are tracked and insured. Scobies are heat sealed in a food grade plastic bag, ready for travel! Arrives freshly packed in a box, with everything you need to get started.
⭐️ All Kombucha cultures are 100% organic. Created using the freshest, highest quality ingredients.
⭐️ Never dehydrated or refrigerated!
⭐️ 100% PURE Kombucha culture. This culture and starter tea is completely pure and organic. It has never been cross contaminated with apple cider vinegar or anything other than pure Kombucha and starter. Apple cider vinegar is commonly used as a Kombucha starter, however similar, it is not true Kombucha and can weaken your culture strain over time.
⭐️ WHAT IS PU-ERH TEA? Pu-erh is a very special tea originating in Yunnan Province China. It has already undergone a fermentation process, making it PERFECT for brewing Kombucha tea. It delivers a very mild, satisfying flavor that is sure to win over just about anyone's tastebuds! Pu-erh goes a long way, and you won't need to use as much of this tea as you would green or black. Pu-erh is also more forgiving if you over brew or under brew. It won't turn vinegary or "boochy" too quickly. Perfect for beginners!
⭐️ Keeping things sanitary is EXTREMELY important to me, just as it is to you. Something to be extra cautious of, especially when purchasing a live, Kombucha culture online. All cultures are grown in a smoke free/animal free environment.

• Kombucha or water Kefir? Water Kefir and Kombucha both deliver so many amazing benefits, so which one is right for you? Maybe both! Below I have listed some facts and benefits of both cultures.
BENEFITS OF WATER KEFIR • Water Kefir only takes 24-48 hours to brew during primary fermentation. • It is GOOD for you. Containing more vitamins and probiotic strains in general, than yogurt and other natural probiotic sources on the market. • Water Kefir "grains" are a type of SCOBY ( symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast ). The name refers to the look of them only, as they are not related to any sort of wheat. • Water is the main ingredient. Some sugar and fruit/molasses for minerals ( optional ). That's it! • Cheap to make! With the few simple ingredients it takes to make water Kefir, you won't be breaking the bank for your health. • The gift that keeps on giving! Did you know, when properly cared for, your Kefir grains will multiply? That's right! So give some to your friends and family, eat them plain or make MORE Kefir. • Kefir grains are "clean". This means their appearance is...well just that! They do not produce excess visible yeast. This is neither a good or bad thing, just a pleasant plus for people new to the world of probiotic cultures. It also makes eating them by themselves that much more enjoyable! • Water Kefir is a more "general" probiotic for your body ( not too intense ) • Kefir grains are tough. They can be chewed easily, but they are quite resilient by nature. • Grains can be stored easily! Need a brewing break? Store them in a container with some sugar water, in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. They are tough little guys! Grains can also be dehydrated and stored for up to 6 months ( I do not recommend this - but sometimes it's the only option ). • Will not only ferment water, but natural fruit juice and coconut water as well. • Water Kefir tends to be more palatable than Kombucha for youngsters and some adults. Mellow, effervescent, lightly sweetened probiotic drink you can flavor just about any way you like!
BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA • Kombucha is brewed with black or green tea making it extra rich in antioxidants. • The gift that keeps on giving! Similar to kefir grains, your Kombucha SCOBY will create a new SCOBY during each brew cycle. Give one to a friend, make delicious SCOBY jerky and candies, pet treats, hair rinse, face masks and of course more booch! • Kombucha is a bit stronger, more instant probiotic as oppose to Kefir. You will most likely feel it kicking in sooner. • Kombucha is not just a beverage. You can make delicious vinegar that also serves as safe/effective household cleaner. It can also be used in your hair as a rinse for extra shine - and boy does it work wonders! Throw some in with your laundry for the extra dingy loads. Cleans the dishwasher quite well also. There are a lot of possibilities in store when you begin brewing your own Kombucha! • Kombucha can be made with a light fruity flavor ( green tea ). Or, you can brew it more bold and earthy tasting ( black tea ). The tea you choose makes a difference in taste. This is a lot of fun when creating new flavors by pairing teas with double ferment fruits and juices. • Kombucha is inexpensive to make. Basic green or black tea and sugar. That's it! The special ingredient is the SCOBY! • Kombucha is not just a general probiotic beverage. It goes the extra mile! It contains stronger acids and enzymes which you body and gut get a mega boost from. • Kombucha really helps out when trying to kick a sugar or alcohol habit. • Kombucha contains a small amount of caffeine. • Amazing overall detox for the body and instant, more effective probiotic.
