I have never cultured Kombucha before and it has been a successful project. I appreciate the ability to make the same tea my ancestors drank in Russia. One difficultly is finding a warm space to speed up the culture (mine is on top of the refrigerator at about 68 degrees). Even without ideal temperature I have been able to get about four pints from a one gallon jar started 40 days ago. Kombucha is about 4 dollars at the co-op so I have already made up the cost of the starter and tea! I look forward to making even more when the summer comes! (Posted on 1/11/2013)
Easy to follow directions that won't fail. The tea taste great. Myself and several family members have used these starters with great success. Staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. (Posted on 11/3/2013)
I was having a hard time getting a new culture to start on my own. I decided to try this culture and am so happy that I did. I feel like the kombucha and it's taste from this culture is better than my other batches. (Posted on 12/22/2013)
I am addicted to this...I was so nervous it would be difficult to make my own, while looking for organic yogurt culture I came upon this awesome site. I cannot believe how easy this has been! Just finished my first gallon batch and it's delicious, only one gallon every 30 days will not fill our needs so waiting to get some new scobys. Even though I messed up by not fulling reading the directions, I still successful, and the online assistance unreal, it was a Saturday morning when I logged on and hit the chat option highly expecting to get a message to try on Monday, but nope they were there! Will always refer and use this site exclusively! (Posted on 2/10/2014)
