What the Manufacturers Say! 

Xtreme Tea Brews is the most user-friendly compost tea brew on the market today. Not only are they easy to use, they are the most cost-effective method of brewing high-quality compost tea. Xtreme Tea has a unique, two-part system that keeps the product stable until the time of use. The Tea Brew pouch contains the compost material and the microbe food pack provides a food source designed to multiply microbes during the brewing process. Our special blend of organic matter has been shown to break down nutrients and make them available to your plants as well as increase microbial population in the rhizosphere. 

In every square inch of soil, there are billions of active microbes that make up a complex community of organisms living in and around the roots of plants. The soil food web is a series of conversions of energy and nutrients between microbes. When organism decomposes complex materials, or consume other organisms, the nutrients are converted and are made available to plants and to other soil organisms. High amounts liquid and synthetic fertilisers can be detrimental to living organisms when applied to your soil.  Reintroducing living microbes found in compost can help rebuild your soils food web.

Xtreme Tea brews are easy to use, quick, effective means of adding life back into your soil. It can be applied as an instant extractor as a brewed compost tea in an aerated brewer. Simply pour the brewed tea around the base of the plant once a week. The microbes around the root zone begin rapidly breaking down nutrients into a form your plant can use right away. With more nutrients and minerals available, your plants can grow stronger and faster!
