One of my favorite things about the Green Box is that they almost always send organic products. I will definitely be using this ginger!

This SCOBY Starter is a fermented aged culture made from sugar, water and tea. A dairy-free probiotic!

Verdict: I’ve heard amazing things about Kombucha, so I’m hoping this box turns out to be a life-changing one for me. It’s definitely my project for next weekend! Have you made Kombucha before? Any tips?

  1. I got this box. I was kind of disappointed at first because I did not know what this stuff even was, but the more I read about it, more interested I became. Did try it, had my first batch last week, and I love it, started my second batch on Friday. Love this box!

  2. I would give my right arm for this one. I am suffering from monthly box evny which I usually don’t, but gardening is my thing! No giveaway? You’re article is so well written it makes me want to takeyour so is you’re not planning a garden, please send my way! No luck finding a job since got let go X-mas Eve, but honest, ethical, and smart if you know anyone that needs Accountant, Bookkeeper, Payroll, Human Resources, Marketing (Minor). I am good and I want that box!!!

  3. I make my own kombucha all the time! A lot of people don’t like it but I love it! It tastes very vinegar-y. Make sure that no mold grows on your scoby and if you do, start over right away! And make sure to keep your scoby in about 2 cups of kombucha to keep it fresh. And with every batch, a new scoby grows that you can give away, kinda like amish friendship bread. And it seems like this box makes ginger flavor kombucha but you can add any fruit juices after it is brewed and bottled. Don’t add it as it is being brewed or it will kill the scoby.

    • I have never had and love to try new things.
