wild floral jun

This is our new jun, the traditional healing fermented beverage made with honey and herbs.  This variety was inspired by the profuse elderflowers in our neighbourhood this summer, childhood memories of drinking my Welsh father's traditional elder beer and Stephen Harrod Buhner's writings on sacred indigenous brews of these islands.  It includes heather, a traditional ingredient which becomes psychotropic upon fermentation.  The other ingredients are : spring water, wild poly floral honey,  Mayan lily, blue lily, sacred lotus, wild fennel, guayusa, Sage and lapsang souchong.  It's interesting that the guayusa feeds the jun culture itself, one of our main reasons for including it.
