Have you ever tried kombucha? This little powerhouse drink is packed with probiotics and so good for you. Here's a tutorial to make your own homemade kombucha and add flavors during a second fermentation to make it extra delicious.
Make a batch of tea. Boil 4 cups water with 6-8 organic black tea bags. Let the tea cool down for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bag.
Add 1/2 cup of organic cane sugar and stir until dissolved.
Let the tea cool down to room temperature. Add SCOBY starter and the tea it was stored in to the 1/2 gallon mason jar. Add the cooled down tea just brewed and fill the mason jar.
Cover with a cloth (not cheese cloth - it's too thin) and put a rubber band around it.
Let it store for 1-2 weeks. The more time the kombucha ferments, the more acidic it tastes. At 10 days, I thought my kombucha tea tasted almost like apple cider vinegar.
