The typical kombucha ferment produces acetic acid and gluconic acid in a nearly equal amount, (Cornell Study).  Our White Kombucha Strain produces two to three times the amount of gluconic acid typically found in kombucha. (Independent testing)
Gluconic acid is associated with detoxifying, especially of heavy metals. There is also a significantly higher ratio of gluconic acid to acetic acid thus producing a smoother more pleasant taste. Another important factor is the amount of keto-gluconic acid present in the tea. Here again, in our Silver Needle White Hair Kombucha ,we tested at  close to twice that typical amount as well. This is the acid that that has been mis identified as glucuronic acid and leading to speculation for the wonderful health of those that drink kombucha tea.
Silver Needle White Hair This special tea is high in antioxidants and consists totally of young buds that are covered with white down. Reputed to offer the most health benefits. The tender new growth leaf is the least processed of all teas. A world famous exquisite tea. Highest in anti-oxidants and highest in medicinal value (Japanese Study). Produces a kombucha tea with a pale yellow hue with a light honey-sweet scent. Delicate in taste with a clean mellow sweetness the aftertaste is fresh, light and sweet. Most white teas are considered low in caffeine (as they are least fermented, yet since these are only the finest young buds picked in spring they have the most Yang energy of teas. The true champagne of kombucha tea and the most YANG of our kombucha's, quietly powerful.

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.


At this time our Kombucha Tea is the only know cure for EBS.
