Jun is a specialty kombucha that possesses a refreshing effervescence. It is often hailed as the Champagne of Kombucha due to its delicate taste and high-quality ingredients. It is smoother, sweeter and more palatable than kombucha. Almost like a sparkling, gut-healing soda.
The true difference between the two kinds of fermented teas lies in the ingredients; instead of the black tea and refined sugar used in kombucha, Jun is brewed using green tea and honey. The SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) is trained to feed off of honey rather than sugar giving it the added bonus of mineralizing the drink.
As a culture, Jun is considered to be more wild than kombucha. Because of this, you can expose it to just about any herb, creating potent healing remedies.
Tonic Ingredients and Healing BenefitsThere are four main tonic components: living jun culture, filtered water, organic green tea and local, raw honey. Each component of the tonic boasts major health benefits.
