Thanks for sharing all your comments and perspectives this week!

Here’s my weekly round-up of answers to your questions, comments and perspectives posted on Facebook.

@David- thanks for telling us about your experience with kombucha. You’re a long time drinker, for sure. Kombucha is one of those homemade foods that can add a nice dimension to your life. And you can enjoy it so many ways. If you are a home brewer, you can use many different herbs for the liquid base. You need some sort of sugar for the mushroom to feed on, so consider using other natural sweeteners, including honey or fruit syrup sweetener. Of course, anybody who wants to give it a try can drink a kombucha herbal tea.

@Stacee- the great thing about lifestyle teas is that healthy herbs can taste great. Using tea-sized doses of beneficial herbs, along with great tasting flavor herbs is a great strategy for maintaining your health over a lifetime. And remember, just because we usually think of an herb as a flavor herb, it still often has healthful properties. Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut herbal tea contains cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove and black pepper, all of which are well known beneficial, warming herbs.

    Does your Green Tea Kombucha have as much Kombucha in it as your Kombucha tea?

  • Yogi says:

    Hi Wyoung! Here at Yogi, we have four teas that contain organic Kombucha: Green Tea Kombucha, Green Tea Kombucha Decaf, Green Tea Triple Echinacea and Green Tea Energy. Of these, Green Tea Kombucha, Green Tea Kombucha Decaf and Green Tea Triple Echinacea contain the most Kombucha. I hope this helps! ~Adriane @ Yogi

    I don’t understand about your kombucha tea. Does dried kombucha have the probiotics in it? And if it does won’t they be killed by the boiling water?

  • Becca Lesser says:

    Hi Karen,

    Great question! We’re happy to share more information about our Green Tea Kombucha. For the kombucha used in our tea, we start with an actual live kombucha culture to create a green tea kombucha infusion. This infusion is grown in a base of water and green tea leaves. The water from this mixture is then removed by a natural spray dry process. Given that this process pasteurizes the infusion’s microbial culture, our Green Tea Kombucha does not contain living organisms as does traditional kombucha. However, the beneficial by-products of the kombucha culture remain, including numerous acids and vitamins.

    Let us know if we can answer any additional questions that you may have!
