front porch kombucha

It’s no secret: great kombucha starts with great tea. The Front Porch Special by Piper and Leaf Artisan Tea Company, a delightful mix of jasmine, spearmint, bergamot, Assam, Ceylon, and cornflower, is one of my favorite teas. So it’s not surprising that it also makes one of my favorite kombuchas.
