No hurry; I'd be happy to wait. I wasn't expecting it to be done yet, but visible action would be good. I probably have a 7 to 1 ratio of tea to kombucha, thought the whole bottle would be able to take care of it.


Due to recent economic crisis, stock market crash, budget cuts, and the rising cost of everything including taxes: "The Light at the End of The Tunnel" has been turned off.

They'd better hurry up and take a lot of fruit juice off the shelves then too!

Whole Foods pulled unpasteurized kombucha off their shelves on their own. The feds didn't say anything; kombucha is still off their radar, it was WF's lawyers. The problem is not the 1/2% alcohol (fresh-squeezed orange juice has about the same amount) the problem is, unless you pasteurize it, the alcohol level can fluctuate as much a 1% or more, and then the laws get sticky. I can still get G.T.'s at my local organic food store. At $3.40 for 16 ounces, I still make my own at home.

It is because of the potential alcohol content, now an ABC issue. BUT, you can buy the kombucha concentrates, add water and you are good to go; or so I have read.
