The Best Home Kombucha Starter Kits


So you’re hooked on the wonderful fermented tea known as kombucha but not loving dropping $5 a bottle to drink it? Luckily for you, there are some great home kombucha starter kits out there with quality equipment and detailed step-by-step instructions.

Kombucha’s origins and benefits are well-documented. Basically sweetened tea left to ferment at room temperature with a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast), it has been known as the “elixir of life” and the “tea of immortality”. Similar to other fermented foods, kombucha improves digestion and gut health, provides probiotics (good bacteria), helps with joint care, and strengthens the immune system. Kombucha helps your body stay in balance, but since it’s an adaptogenic tonic you should start drinking it in small amounts to see how your body reacts. Stay with it regularly and work your way up to 1 glass a day.
