Kombucha Starter Kit
Ferment to be.
For those who’ve missed the kombucha parade, there’s plenty of time left to jump on a float. A SCOBY float that is (we’ll explain). A pleasantly fizzy, fermented tea, it’s chock-full of probiotics and has been a sipping standby for centuries. Thankfully, rather than spending a small fortune on the store bought types, you can now create your own right at home. One kit comes outfitted with everything you’ll need for a lifetime supply of drinks, including the SCOBY (where all that gut-health boosting goodness comes from), tea, sugar, a pretty jar, and, of course, a handy, foolproof guide.
