AN Ancient Elixir for Body, Mind, & Spirit
WHAT IS JUN?
Jun means "mushroom" in Chinese and is a fermented effervescent tea, rich in healthy acids and probiotics. Jun is made with green tea and raw honey. It has become known as the “champagne of kombucha” due to its light, smooth, and unique flavor profile. It is similar to Kombucha, however, the Jun SCOBY typically feeds on green tea and raw honey while the Kombucha SCOBY typically feeds on black tea and sugar.
HOW DO JUN AND KOMBUCHA DIFFER?
According to some of the myths, Jun tea is over 1,000 years old and is a ferment that thrives best with organic green tea and raw honey, where, traditionally Kombucha thrives best with black tea and sugar. Jun has a more delicate flavor profile than Kombucha and has all the benefits of green tea (with bioactive compounds and powerful antioxidant properties) and raw honey (with antibacterial, antifungal antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties). Jun tea completes its first fermentation cycle faster than Kombucha and ferments best at a lower temperature (low 70’s).
WHAT IS A SCOBY?
Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. A Jun SCOBY is similar to what is used to make kombucha, yogurt or kefir; it is the source of jun’s living probiotic properties.
JUN FERMENTATION is the process that transforms green tea and raw honey into a living elixir for health.
PROBIOTICS are friendly bacteria, enzymes, and yeasts that live in your gut. Fermented foods and beverages are naturally rich in these beneficial microorganisms. As with all foods, the whole form is most efficacious, so naturally fermented foods like jun, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, and yogurt are best.
HEALTHY JUN ACIDS act like lemon water which means that they are acidic in nature but alkalizing in the gut. Shanti-Jun is similar to apple cider vinegar in that it contains high levels of healthy organic acids that help to detoxify the organs.
