Elderberry Kombucha is sweet and bright during the summer months and the perfect winter remedy for colds and influenza more common colds during the winter months. These 12 oz aluminum cans come in a single flavor 4-pack. Aqua ViTea's Kombucha is not too sweet and very drinkable. Kombucha is a fermented beverage made simply from tea, sugar, water, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (scoby). Known commonly as an ancient elixir, it has been revered for centuries for its life enhancing qualities.
Elderberries tip the scales of medicinal berries with extremely high levels of antioxidants and anti-viral qualities. They held a prominent place in our ancestral medicine chest. Lost for a generation, their role as a vital "functional food" has resurfaced thanks to the wisdom of our elders.
Aqua ViTea's Kombucha brewery is located in Middlebury, VT. They brew in small batches using Green Mountain spring water, organic and fair-trade green and black tea, organic cane juice and superior leach-free fermenting vessels. The process begins with a very strong and sweet batch of tea. The brew is cooled and moved to the fermenting vessel where the Kombucha culture is added. After some time has passed and the culture has begun to transform the sweet tea into the ancient elixir, they begin to closely monitor the brew. Fermentation is stopped when the brew has reached the perfect balance of taste and medicinal value.

This has become a staple. Not too sweet. Elderberry is beloved in Central Europe where I lived for decades but it's not usual here. Thank you!
