On 20 June I started brewing my own Kombucha Tea from a culture I received from a friend. You can read about that here.
I flavored them with lime juice and jamaica flowers.
After extracting and flavoring I corked the bottles and left them on the counter to continue to ferment for a few more days.
On 4 July I tried my first home brewed and flavored Kombucha Tea, and I liked it. This batch is quite refreshing and quite tart.
Today, 7 July I shared my first SCOBY baby and 2 cups of starter tea.
I went shopping looking for a glass container with a spigot. I found several that were very cool but they started at about 700pesos. So, I am sticking with my glass vase for now. I did stop at a hardware store and pick up a meter of clear flexible plastic tubing, and that is how I am extracting my Kombucha Tea. It doesn’t disturb the SCOBY too much, and it pulls the tea from the bottom which is the big benefit of a jar with a spigot.
Also, today, I started having a 2nd small kombucha tea in the evening. So far I can’t report any significant results, but hey, I have faith!
