I have been brewing my own kombucha for a few months now and have created this recipe which never fails me. This recipe will make roughly 3.2 - 3.4L and is super easy to follow.
14-16 cups water
8 tea bags
1 cup of sugar
1.5 cups of starter tea
Boil all the water and pour into your glass jar
Add the tea and allow to steep for 5-10 minutes
Remove tea bags and dissolve sugar in water, allow to cool to room temperature (can take a while so be patient)
Once cool, add your SCOBY to the mix and cover with paper towel or a tea-towel (needs to be breathable)
Wait 7-30 days, taste after 7 days and see how you like the flavor, once your taste buds are happy, voila! You have ready to drink, home-made kombucha. Otherwise, you can now flavor your kombucha however you like!
Stay tuned for my flavoring kombucha blog coming VERY soon.
