Jun is similar to the more widely-known kombucha - a naturally fermented probiotic tea with a light and refreshing carbonation. However, whereas kombucha is usually made with oolong or white teas, jun is made with green tea and mixed with honey for a unique, light flavor. A very nice choice for a hot Bangkok afternoon, with the smooth and light caffeine impact of green tea. Every batch of Bunny Turtle Ferments’ jun is hand tended to by their team to ensure a very consistent and pleasant flavor. Her jun is made with only three ingredients: organic green jasmine tea, raw honey, and probiotic cultures. --- Extra credit! Let’s revisit why probiotic consumption is a great way to keep your gut healthy - and by extension, your digestive and immune systems. In our modern world, nearly everything we touch or eat has been heavily sanitized, sterilized, or treated to minimize microbial exposure. Most of the time, this is great - on balance, we all want to have clean water, food, and so on. However, we don’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water! A huge variety of bacteria live in your gut, and an increasing body of research indicates that the composition of that bacteria regulates the production of various hormones (like testosterone or estrogen) and neurotransmitters like serotonin and GABA which play a role in energy levels and mood. For this reason, some researchers call the gut your “second brain!” In pre-modern times, our guts received much higher doses of probiotic bacteria naturally through - wait for it - the incidental ingestion of soil (mainly from residues, or dirt, on gathered plant and animal foods). Nowadays this type of ingestion is much rarer, so we can keep our gut balance in check by regularly eating fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, vinegar, pickles, miso, natto, kombucha, etc. If you’ve never regularly eaten fermented foods, try daily consumption for a month and see how your mood, energy levels, digestion, and immune system are impacted.
