Jun “Honey” SCOBY


Our SCOBYs come straight from our climate-controlled culture lab!

Believed to have originated in the Himalayan mountains, Jun is a special kombucha culture that feeds on honey rather than sugar. The result is a mouth-coating, mead-like kombucha with an unforgettable flavor - from which you may never look back! This is an excellent move toward sustainable 'buch, as you can easily source local honey and explore the nuances of your region's terroir. We find that lesser-oxidized teas tend to make the most pleasant Jun. 

Just one of these mothers will give you lifetimes of sparkling, probiotic vitality - you can start a 1,000 year reign of 'buch wellness!

This Jun SCOBY is wonderful - imparts a rich flavor that I prefer to sugar-fed ones. If you prefer honey-based kombucha, this is great culture. The care with which these are grown shows! (Posted on 7/3/2017)

I had been brewing kombucha for three years, when something I cannot explain caused by brew to go moldy. Rather than buy a new kombucha SCOBY, I d chided to try Jun. WOW !! I love it! So glad I went for it. (But I do miss kombucha, so plan to buy a new SCOBY from you soon. Also, I placed a second order for supplies on the phone - You all were SO helpful! Excellent product, excellent customer service - life is good. (Posted on 6/29/2016)
Awesome!Review by JENNIE

After reading about JUN, I knew I had to try it. I've been brewing my own Kombucha for a while now, so I thought this would be a new fun little hobby. I've already brewed a batch of JUN and am so happy with the way it tastes...it has a very light, smooth taste to it.
The Scoby came well packaged and was very healthy. I am always impressed with anything I get from Kombucha Brooklyn...You guys are THE BEST!!

Great and better than regular SCOBYReview by Ladislav
How do you rate this product?
I purchased Jun SCOBY back in March. Shipping was very fast, and I started my Jun immediately.
I had little problem with first batch.
Maybe SCOBY had to adjust to Florida weather? :-)

However, after that, everything is great, and SCOBY has already many "babies".
I prefer Jun over kombucha because of great taste, and I personally think it has more health benefits.

We will be making Jun commercially in our restaurant soon,
and our website will be "alive" this week.

(Eric, I hope, I will not get in to trouble for posting my link.) Have a mercy. :-)

Great job KB.

This is my first foray into the world of Jun tea and I'm loving it! If you're on the fence of wether or not you should buy this scoby, I say it's worth the experiment! (Posted on 2/20/2015)
IntriguedReview by nicolette
How do you rate this product?
I'm very intrigued by Jun. I try to avoid sugar so being able to use honey (an all time favorite ingredient) is definitely the way I want to go. However, I'm finding it very hard to find a lot of information on Jun tea. I'd be very grateful for any possible information.

My first batch I used local lightly processed honey and some organic mid quality green tea. I think I need to up my game with my ingredients (particularly the tea).

I'm going to continue to experiment. (Posted on 2/2/2015)
Love this!Review by Courtney

I have been drinking traditional store bought Kombucha for years. It never occurred to me to brew it myself though until recently when I decided my store bought brews were taking a toll on the pocket book. I found this site and saw this Jun culture and was intrigued! I never heard of Jun tea until visiting this site! Wow am I glad I took the chance in something new though! I ordered my culture on Sunday, received it and started the brew on Tuesday and it is now Friday and I just took the first taste....wow is it delicious! It tastes light and fizzy, like a light sparkling cider and green tea combo with a hint of honey! Its so refreshing and delicious....anddd I haven't even started the second ferment yet, which I plan to do tonight or tomorrow. Even my step daughter who is anti anything healthy thinks its delicious (granted I didn't tell her what it actually was until after she tried it ;)

Bottom line, if you haven't tried Jun it is an absolute must! (Posted on 1/23/2015)
