It's sorta almost the end of 2018, and kombucha is truly thriving. If you happen to be living under a rock and aren't sure what kombucha is, it's basically a fermented tea that supposedly has some cool health benefits — but most of all it just tastes really damn good.

But hey, don't just take it from me. Take it from the amazing reviews this things boasts. Like this happy customer who put off home brewing for a while, but got tired of paying for overpriced bottled kombucha:

amazon.com

"I've been wanting to try my hand at making kombucha for a few years now, but was afraid of making it wrong and becoming deathly ill. Also, I admit, the scoby kind of freaked me out. One of the blogs I follow recently reviewed this kit and I decided to go for it (and besides, paying upwards of $3.50 per bottle at the store was getting ridiculous). I am so happy I bought this kit! I'm currently brewing my second batch as my first batch came out awesome! I made a ginger/orange flavor and a strawberry/lemonade flavor from that first batch and they taste even better than what I can buy at the store. And no more fear of the scoby! I actually enjoy looking at it daily to see what new changes have occurred overnight. I think it's safe to say I will never buy store-bought kombucha again!" —Cheflene

While this reviewer loves the fact that once you buy this kit, there's no need to buy another one. All you need to make more kombucha in the future is tea leaves and sugar!

"It has everything you need to start a first batch of kombucha. It includes clear instructions for how to make, and how to continue your kombucha for the second batch. Now I’m making my third batch, and loving it so far. After the first batch, you will need to find your own tea leaves and sugar, but it’s fun trying different tea to see how different they all taste. It’s also fun trying different fruits/spices during the second fermentation. If you purchase this kit as your first kombucha investment, you can brew your own kombucha forever, only needing to buy additional tea leaves and sugar." —Meg
