Continue to produce kombucha tea just by adding pure water, tea and honey (or honey and sugar) every brewing cycle. Don't forget to stock up on your tea and honey. To produce Kombucha Tea using honey use about 25% more honey than you would sugar. WE recommend to use a total of 75% raw honey plus 25% white or organic sugar to each brew. You may also use rice or maple sryups. Comes with our 77 page booklet of ideas.  The option tab below highlights our orgnaic and prmium teas. Each packaged to make between 10-12 gallons of kombucha tea. The quality of our teas are excellent and I don't believe you'll find a better value anywhere. I would recommend starting off with our excellent premium oragnaic Green or Black tea. BLACK TEA is recommended for Diabetcs.  If for any reason you find our products are not quite what you're looking for simply return anytime for a full refund.

Kombucha Tea has been found to be safe and effective. According to Cornell Food Sciences (University of New York) Kombucha Tea should be brewed to a 3.0 pH (semi-sweet taste) to ward off possible pathogens. Pathogenic growth can be prevented by the consumption of the properly fermented tea, which in turn aids immunity and illness prevention and leads to better overall health.  However if the fermentation is allowed to continue too long, the acidity can increase to very high levels, which may pose a potential health risk. Acetic acid concentrations may rise to levels as high as 30 g/L (3%) when the tea is allowed to ferment for up to 30 days and threaten autoimmune compromised individuals and babies. Other factors besides 3% acetic acid have to be taken into consideration. Normal healthy individuals are not considered at risk. Healthy individuals may take acetic levels at twice that level. Other healthy products like Apple Cider and vinegars are often 5% acetic acid.  It is the volume of tea taken, combined with the individual overall health that are the primary considerations. Fermentation may continue and indeed undergo a secondary fermentation when bottling or left in storage. At that stage (acetic acid >2 % ) the normal pleasant tasting KT becomes too vinegary and is often just discarded or watered down with fruit juice or water. pH strips are available at beer & wine hobby shops or directly from us (see options above) Refer also to our online library for safe brewing instructions or feel free to contact us anytime with your concerns.  

The FDA and CDC have investigated all suspicion of possible kombucha contamination. It is reassuring to know that over the millions of kombucha brewers, with numerous methods and standards kombucha is considered 100% safe.  Because there are a great many kombucha recipes and brewing methods it is impossible to pinpoint anything more than a general concern; Stomach gurgling, constipation, or diarrhea; Heartburn and burning sensation in the stomach may be due to drinking kombucha tea on an empty stomach and usually resolved when taken with food. Menstruation may be more pronounced and stronger. Reddish skin rash, or flare-up of an existing skin condition.  If this occurs simply reduce the amount by 1/2 and allow your body to adjust. This may be a Helmix Reaction, “healing crisis” as the kombucha botanical is releasing toxins. The body normally releases toxins through the urine. In more intense times through the stool, skin and nose. A “healing crisis” is similar to the symptoms of a cold or flu and should be resolved within a few days. If not it may be an allergic reaction or signs of a serious cold or flu and something that should be considered by a local medical professional.

Kombucha acts a s a blood thinner and may lower blood pressure caution is urged for those with potential hypotension, or on blood thinners. Do not use just prior to or after surgery or while fasting.

If Pregnant or Nursing. I do not recommend kombucha tea. It seems I argue with many women who insist that they themselves drank freely all through their pregnancy and have given their children KT as well and all grew to be healthy and wise. Matter of fact many women say this frequently. My cautionary is simple one of "Physician Do No Harm” In almost all these cases there is no medical reason (at that time) for intervention. I prefer to err on the side of caution. We do know that kombucha will cross into the milk. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, kombucha will break stasis and expel pathogens. That’s what a developing fetus is. However kombucha, in these circumstances, do not appear to have that affect, yet I still advise caution. Children under the age of 4 are still developing their own immune system and therefore I do not advise kombucha, as they their own immune system may not fully develop.  The volume of KT as well as the level of acidity (see above) should be calculated to the child as well as taken the Childs overall constitution. Raw honey  is not advised for any child regardles of age, and / or for those with a compromised immune system as the risk of infant botulism is present unless the honey is pasteurized or cooked. see our online article on Kombucha Safety at cautions.htm
