During shipment, the lid detached, leaking the contents of the starter culture. Contacted the seller who immediately responded. Received a personal note stating they would replace the item, that they had identified the container flaw, and had already implemented a new process to ensure it wouldn't happen again in the future. Later the same day, was surprised to receive an email that they had additinally credited my account $10 for delay in receiving (based on original order date, not replacement date). Very impressed. This is how customer service used to be and what every company should strive for. I predict success for this company. Would gladly do business with them in the future. About the product, it is a culture. I had these growing in my kitchen when I lived in Poland and Russia. Very straightforward and easy to use.....when it arrives (live I hope!) it will do the job.

I ordered Lifetime Kefir's Kombucha starter and it arrived in just a few days. I followed their included instructions, and the starter mother grew quickly. I just drank my first batch of kombucha! It was definitely much more flavorful than anything you can buy at the store. It was richer and more complex. I highly recommend Lifetime Kefir's Kombucha starter. How rewarding!

It's winter here, so in a couple weeks I had a good batch of KOMBUCHA tea. It was probably one of the best tastes I've ever had. This is the second time I've made it, the first time I've ordered a mother. The first time I used two bottles of GT kombucha.

This seems to be a great deal. The tea tastes great and gives the body buzz.

Despite of my initial disappointment with the distilled vinegar that arrived and the items received not being the same as the ones pictured in the Amazon.com profile I decided to raise number of stars from 2 to 3. 3 stars are for the misleading photos in the product profile and the different items in the package that I received (please read the details below). The mother culture itself is wonderful and produced beautiful, absolutely great tasting kombucha in one week and a gorgeous scoby.

The package arrived in a reasonable time. However, the starter liquid came in a PLASTIC bottle and only enough to start one quart of kombucha. The description ( of the product on Amazon.com)regarding the contents of the package was not specific enough. The photograph shows a plastic bag with Scoby and liquid, a mysterious brown bag/envelope and what it looks like instructions sheet. Another photograph shows a jar labeled : Kombucha Starter. NONE of these items were included in the package I received. I received a small ziploc bag with Scoby, instructions sheet and a small plastic bottle labeled: "Starter Liquid". When I opened the bottle I realized it is nothing but distilled vinegar. After studying the ways of how to start kombucha tea process I learned that the starter should be the already fermented kombucha tea. According to the seller: Lifetime Kefir company instructions, white distilled vinegar can also be used. Then why isn't the tiny PLASTIC bottle containing WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR labeled as such? Why use such deception? Starter liquid should be the fermented kombucha tea. I do not think it is so expensive that it cannot be included instead of WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR. The only reason I am not going to return this package is that it is not worth my time.

The scoby is far smaller than pictured, exactly half the measured size shown 4" and a quarter of the thickness. They claim this was cultured in an oak cask, only if the cask is the same dimensions of a standard ball jar. You can grow a scoby in three weeks.

Ordered this scoby 1/1/2014 and received 1/17/2014. The day after it was ordered i received the tracking #, if you use USPS click and ship this just means they paid for shipping. You can tell it has been shipped when it goes through a processing facility and has been scanned. So after two weeks of waiting I asked has this shipped the reply was, "It has been lost in transit." A lie, if it were lost in transit and reshipped as they claimed a new tracking # would have been issued, and it was the same tracking number that I followed the day after my order and USPS got it here really fast with it being shipped first class for the shipping price of $5, but that changes constantly. Due to my desire to get to brewing I checked often and noticed they change their price constantly and the company name once and also have a number of different postings, running mainly under the seller of quill group. So I would say avoid them, read though other reviews and you see similar statement of these sellers being misleading and not as pictured.

I bought a scoby from this company for my first batch of kombucha EVER. I had no first-hand knowledge of the process, and the scoby I received was only about 4 inches across. I was a little nervous that it wouldn't work, but it worked beautifully! The kombucha came out exactly right, my new scoby baby is happy and gigantic, and the little scoby hotel I set up is creating another huge baby. This is a great place to get a low cost, high quality scoby. They also sent simple instructions along with it. Just follow them for a perfect batch!
