This website is based on our own personal use and experiments in making Kombucha and Water Kefir (Tibicos) over the last few years and was not initially intended as a detailed or exhaustive archive of information about making the Kombucha tea drink or Water Kefir. However, due to the unexpected popularity of the website, a regular stream of questions and queries and our own further foray into other fermented products, we now try to regularly add new content and information to make it more helpful to those venturing into the wonderful world of healthy, naturally brewed beverages and foods.
We have personally been making and drinking Kombucha now for over several years and was first told about it by a friend in the natural health industry. With the growing understanding and production of fermented foods/drinks we were keen to give it a go and haven't looked back.
The art of brewing our own "Home Made Red Bull" as David calls it is is a fascinating and rewarding exercise that we believe is rewarding both our health and our wallets (by not buying drinks at the shops). While we have never drunk many shop bought fizzy drinks anyway, we now buy them even more rarely as drinking Kombucha, Tibicos, Tepache etc is a whole lot cheaper, tastier and better for you in every way.
If you want to learn more about why to make and drink naturally fermented beverages and their many claimed health benefits, then please follow the links on the left to learn about the many tasty options we have available to us all these days.
If you are looking for somewhere to obtain a Kombucha culture or 'Scoby' or Water Kefir Grains so you can make your own, then you can purchase a kombucha Scoby or Kefir Grains here.
Otherwise enjoy the read and info on this little site and we wish you all the fun and best of health if you choose to delve into the fine art of making your own Healthy Brews.
David and Claire
