Why You’ll Love It

At $4 a bottle, a kombucha habit can seriously drain your wallet. But that tart, fizzy drink can be so irresistible. That's why we're loving Cultures for Health's Starter Kit, which has nearly everything you need to brew bubbly, organic kombucha right at home—including the SCOBY, which stands for “symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast.” When you open the kit, you’ll see it—it looks a little bit like brown, dried mango.

Throughout this process we have focused on...
