Product Description


    Each "Durand Kombucha Jar" comes with a recipe for Kombucha Tea and a complete system maintenance guide.

    Kombucha, an ancient food and healing product originally from Asia was widely used in Russia, Eastern Europe and Japan but is relatively unknown in New Zealand. Kombucha is a living organism, the symbiosis of a number of bacteria and special-yeast cultures which, when fermented with sweet tea, become the Kombucha beverage. Kombucha is a health giving tea, that is said to aid in reducing the symptoms of many ills. Stoneware is the perfect medium for brewing and storing your kombucha.

    Our jars are individually handmade on the potter's wheel from stoneware clay. They are hand decorated and glazed with non-toxic glazes and then fired in our kiln to 1280 degrees Celsius. At this temperature the clay becomes vitrified and is turned to stone. The glaze turns to glass, unable to hold or leach any impurities. Unlike glass it will keep too much light from getting in to your brew, making it the perfect environment for your kombucha to grow. We make our jars with a tap so you are able to use the continuous fermentation process. This method allows you to dispense a daily amount of kombucha, topping it up with new tea as you go, as opposed to waiting each time. These jars can also be used to make individual batches if desired.

    Important Notes for Brewing Kombucha: Some low fired ceramics which may contain lead in their glazes and it is important to never use low fired ceramics for brewing or storing kombucha, as the lead will leach into your brew.

    No metals should not come in touch with kombucha do not use a metal container or tap.

    Do not boil your water or tea in aluminium pans.

    Do not cover kombucha with a lid, only use a light muslin or cheesecloth material that you are able to breathe through. If the weave is to loose you may need to use a couple of layers.

    Use a rubber band or tie to hold the cloth over the jar.
