Since 2000 our Happy Herbalist Tibetan Kombucha Mushroom Starter Kits have been grown using pure reverse osmosis water, all glass containers, organic sugar, and the highest grade (A) Royal Pu-erh aged 4 years.
Only the finest Creamy Smooth, Blemish-Free Premium Kombucha Mushrooms are shipped to you. Our special heat sealed FDA approved food grade packaging ensure a safe trip.  We Guarantee your success.

Besides the rich full flavor and extra-ordinary health benefits this is the easiest kombucha tea to brew as it does not sour as quickly as other brews. This allows a longer more beneficial ferment as well as a greater window of opportunity for when the ferment is ready.   Produces a rich flavorful cup of tea well deserving of its reputation for medicinal value Aids digestive, metabolize fat, lowers cholesterol helps in weight control and relieve stagnation especially those located in joints. The French (Study) discovered that 3 cups a day of this tea lowered cholesterol as effective as prescription drugs - and without side affects. When made with kombucha, bones and joints don’t seem to squeak as much. Our Pu-erh is Grade A and aged 4 years (highest grade and well aged) which produces a smoother fuller taste. This is our most YIN of our kombucha's. Produces a fulfilling completeness.

Begin making your own Kombucha Tea. Our Starter kits include Creamy smooth extra thick 5-inch mushroom, 1/2 oz of our Royal Pu-erh aged 4 years,  one+ cup starter tea at the proper pH. 77 page Brewing & Health Guide, plus toll free support.

Continue to produce kombucha tea just by adding pure water, tea and sugar you normally use in every brewing cycle. Don't forget to stock up on your tea and sugar. Our packaged Premium and Organic Tea    are 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. Also consider our options to personalize your kombucha experince.  If for any reason you find our products are not quite what you're looking for simply return anytime for a full refund. Create a true symbiotic relationship.

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.  

Possible side affects. 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. Kombucha is individual specific.
