You will need:
1.9 litres of spring/filtered water.
1.5 cups of raw/rapidura sugar.
5 tea bags of black tea or approximately 5 tbls organic loose leaf.
1 Kombucha SCOBY.
100ml of previous kombucha tea or apple cider vinegar.
Piece of breathable cloth.
2L Glass Jar/Stoneware.
Boil enough water (roughly 0.5L) to fill a large mug containing the tea and sugar. Mix thoroughly and allow to cool.
Strain the tea into your preferred vessel and top up with the remaining spring/filtered water and the 100ml of previous kombucha tea.
Place the SCOBY into the vessel, cover with a breathable fabric and secure with an elastic band. Store in a place where it will be left undisturbed and out of direct sunlight. Allow it to ferment for 7-10 days.
After a new SCOBY has formed on top of the tea, it should be ready to consume. Remove the SCOBY Mother and newly formed SCOBY baby (rest them on a plate lined with paper towel), strain the fermented tea into freshly cleaned sterile bottles (be sure to keep at least 100ml for the next cycle) and store them in the fridge to halt further fermentation. Consume within 2 weeks.
Start a new cycle with the mother only or include the baby as well. You can give away the babies to friends along with some fermented tea to get them started!
Kombucha is a natural detoxifier and as such should be used with care. It is best to slowly raise your daily intake of Kombucha from a 2 - 4 oz a day to 8 oz per day. However much your body can handle, permitting you can brew it. Overdosing on Kombucha means your body will detox quickly and harshly. This is not recommended and can leave you feeling quite sick and a little poorly, so be careful.
Passion 4 Juice recommend brewing two batches at a time and drinking about 4 oz a day for a week, and possibly increasing to 8 oz until the next batches are ready.
Pure Kombucha tastes pretty much like apple cider vinegar. Consumed straight, it is an acquired taste. You can mix it with other liquids as you drink it - like juice or flavoured teas. You can use 1/3 strong Kombucha to 2/3 something else.
