Promising review: "I received this as a gift and it is a great gift! You aren't just buying a starter kit, you're buying great customer service. First off, I am a complete novice brewer and this gave me the confidence and instructions to confidently brew. It includes absolutely everything you need. However, during my first attempt, something went wrong and my batch molded. I was devastated but with the contact information to the Kombucha shop, they were able to answer my questions quickly and efficiently. To top it all off, they replaced my SCOBY, my tea, and the sugar for free so I could restart. I couldn't be happier!!" —Danielle Davis
