AN Ancient Elixir for Body, Mind, & Spirit


Jun is a traditional fermented tea 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. 


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.
