Kombucha may help your body return to a more balanced state

To make Kombucha you need a base made from a good quality Green or Black Tea. Fog Mountain Organic Green Tea or our English Breakfast Organic Black Tea are both good teas to use. Starting with a high-quality tea brews a high-quality product. Other teas like Oolong and Pu-erh could be used but try an experimental batch to start.
