kombucha!

i’d been brewing kombucha tea for a couple months and then i forgot to start a new one a few weeks ago and i thought my scoby was dead. but then i showed it to my friend heidi, who i got my first scoby from, and she said it looked really healthy. who knew!

so i brewed up some fresh tea to put the scoby in. i used four bags of black raspberry for one. for the other i used two bags of the black breakfast blend tea and two berryblossom white.


 
i poured the boiling water into these measuring cups to brew the tea. i added room temperature water later to fill up the quart sized jars.

the scoby made a little baby so i started two jars of tea brewing. you can see it in the first picture above, there’s a thicker scoby and a thinner one on top. i’m really excited about this!
kombucha tea has a great many health benefits which you can read about on food renegade. they also have some good instructions on growing your very own kombucha scoby. maybe one of these days i’ll write a full tutorial on it myself.

so here are my two jars of tea fermenting. i think i’ll bottle them in eight or nine days. there will be a blog post when it happens.
