Hi,

I am looking for information on drinking Kombucha warm vs cold.
I have been drinking it room temperature mostly, sometimes refrigerated.
Can it maintain all the benefits after microwaving it to drink it like a hot tea?

Thanks

Microwaving your brew(s) could kill beneficial bacteria's or a transplanted scoby(s) . Room temperature is fine and tends to stand even in upper 82° - it's hardy. The rule of thumb is sustained temperatures of 108° or so is enough to kill the cultures or damage the count- lactobacillus in particular can barely withstand 102° at extended periods of time.
Hope this helped
Best of wishes
