We are David and Claire in Tauranga, NZ and 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, queries and requests (and our own further forays into other fermented products), it has grown into a full time business growing cultures for sale and making ready to drink probiotic beverages for the cafes, health shops and food markets in a multitude of places.
You can view our business website, getcultured.co.nz, here.
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 never buy them as drinking Kombucha, Tibicos, Tepache, Ginger beer and all the other drinks we experiment with 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 or milk 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 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
