What is Jun?


Summary: Jun is a relatively unknown green tea honey kombucha. Find out why we love this ancient elixir!

Many customers ask us, what is Jun? Simply put, it is a honey, green tea kombucha. But this brew, known as the champagne of Kombucha, has a long, fascinating history going back thousands of years. 


Jun is a fermented beverage made from green tea, honey, and a mixture of bacteria and yeast called SCOBY. It’s rich in living bacteria, yeasts, organic acids, and antioxidants, which provide numerous health benefits. Honey is a rich source of flavonoids and polyphenols, which act as antioxidants and protect your body. Jun’s light, crisp flavor sets it apart from other brews that may have a more acidic taste. 


This probiotic tonic has a long and significant history dating back several millennia. It is said to have originated in the ancient Tibetan culture and was considered a sacred elixir consumed by Himalayan monks to attain spiritual enlightenment. The drink was passed down from ancestral cultures, starting with Lao Tzu, a great philosopher, and author of the Tao Te Ching, and eventually made its way to the monks of Bon in Tibet. Drinking Jun was believed to purify energy and cleanse the body, being charged with spiritual energy due to the environment in which it was produced. The drink was considered a blessed beverage that aided in one’s spiritual journey.


Although there are fascinating stories and beliefs about Jun, there is limited evidence to prove its sacredness. Whether sacred or not, this delicious probiotic brew is the perfect way to add variety to your kombucha experience.
