Kombucha Tea Recipe:

Ingredients:

  1. 2-3 cups hot water with no chlorine or fluoride (distilled water is fine)
  2. 1/4 cup white sugar
  3. 2 black tea bags or 1 1/2 teaspoons loose black tea
  4. 1/2 cup acidic liquid (either kombucha tea from previous batch or distilled white vinegar)
  5. Activated SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria & Yeast) (A vital ingredient to kombucha tea, a SCOBY will either need to be purchased and activated, made from someone who has recently brewed kombucha tea, or made from a purchased bottle. For more information on what a SCOBY actually is and how to make your own, click here.)

Directions:

  1. Pour the sugar into a quart size glass jar
  2. Add the hot water (not boiling, but hot enough to dissolve the sugar & steep the tea)
  3. Stir until sugar has dissolved
  4. Add the tea bags and let steep for 10 minutes
  5. Remove tea bags
  6. Let entire mixture cool down to room temperature. This is important to the safety of the starter culture
  7. Add your acidic liquid (either kombucha tea from previous batch or distilled white vinegar)
  8. Add SCOBY
  9. Cover jar with either paper coffee filter or fine weave dish towel and rubber band
  10. Put some distilled white vinegar into a spray bottle and spray the paper coffee filter or dish towel a few times each day to keep airborne mold from forming
  11. Place jar in warm spot (68 – 85 degrees), out of direct sunlight, for 7-30 days undisturbed
  12. On day 7, use a straw and taste the kombucha tea. At whatever point the tea tastes good to you, stop the culturing process by removing the starter culture
    Save some of the kombucha tea for your next batch!
