Shanti Elixirs nurtures the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the well-being of our planet.

Shanti Elixirs, LLC is dedicated to helping people find peace, balance, and acceptance while honoring environmental stewardship through means such as bee awareness. Our vision is to nurture the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the well-being of our planet. Our mission is to marry the wisdom of ancient brewing traditions with as many locally sourced foods as possible to enhance the health and well-being of all who enjoy our elixirs. 

Jun 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.

Our Jun draws upon the ancient art of Jun brewing, is super-charged with good vibes, uses locally sourced ingredients, and is made in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains by Shanti and the Shanti Elixirs team.

Check out our FAQs for more information about our elixirs.  We are currently expanding and adding new locations for you to find our Jun in the Asheville area.

 

What do people say about Shanti-Jun?

Every once in a while I come across a product that makes me say "YES! This is IT!"  Your Ginger Jun warms and settles my belly.  The gentle bubbles put a smile on my face.  Absolutely delicious... and good for my body, as well. Sometimes you CAN have it all.

I have been drinking Shanti Elixir’s Jun for a little while now and I am obsessed. I’ve always been a huge fan of Kombucha but was always alarmed by the sugars that they add to it. Jun is great because it uses honey, which has so many healing properties. The taste is so delicious and super smooth. They call it the “champagne of Kombucha” and I totally agree with this. Not only is the product amazing but also the people making it are amazing. I usually get mine at the West Asheville market and they are always so kind and helpful. They allow you to taste all their flavors before buying which is much better than blindly buying from the grocery store. Jun is made locally which is another plus because I love to support local businesses. I am currently sipping on their holiday batch and already need a refill!

 I love Shanti-jun!  I make my own jun, but for some reason, it never tastes as good to me as the amazing blends of flavors that Shanti puts together and serves cold on tap on hot summer market days.  I couldn't name my favorite flavor, I love them all!  In the booth, your patience and generosity providing samples while I try to decide is also appreciated... is it that the jun has that long-term honey (smooth, easy and sweet) effect on you, and, bottle by bottle, on all of us as we partake?  Let's hope so...  Thanks for bringing such lovely and healthy refreshment to Asheville!

I used to love kombucha, but quickly and easily traded it in for Shanti Elixirs Jun after trying just a sample. Super smooth and very flavorful. Plus all the added benefits of kombucha and more. I recently bought a kombucha on the road bc I was out of my Jun, and I couldn’t even drink it - too harsh and way too sugary! If you are looking for a healthy, flavorful, smooth, one of a kind drink, YOU MUST TRY SHANTI’S JUN!

Shanti’s Elixirs are good for what ails you! This product is top notch and consistently delicious! And to think it all started from Shanti’s love for honeybees and desire to raise them! Her heart is always focused on the good of the hive and for the good of the consumer. This product is a win win for everyone! Try the Blueberry Basil Bliss and the Holiday Sparkle Jun...My favorites! Thanks Shanti for creating and offering this life giving drink.

I love Jun...the lightness and the wonderful flavors. I have noticed that my body digests better when I am drinking Jun and, that I have avoided the respiratory illnesses that have surrounded me at home and at work.

Blissful Bee Apiary

Shanti's Blissful Bee Apiary and her love for sacred bee-keeping guided her to discovering Jun. 

Bee Awareness & Sustainability

Our honey bee population is declining and part of our mission at Shanti Elixirs, LLC is to save the honey bees by expanding our Blissful Bee Apiary, growing pollinator friendly gardens, opening up a non-profit educational honeybee sanctuary, and supporting other bee organizations. If the honey bees disappear so will many of our favorite foods such as chocolate, apples, blueberries, almonds and avocados. Honey bee pollination contribute to over 150 crops in the United States which is over $20 billion worth of crops every year. The following are some local groups we can support who are working for bee and pollinator health and awareness and education:
