Kombucha tea recipes

KOMBUCHA RECIPE #1

HOW I MAKE IT-

Supplies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3-4 bags tea
  • Kombucha Starter Culture – SCOBY
  • 1 cup starter liquid
  • Purified/bottled water
  • Tea kettle
  • Brewing vessel
  • Cloth cover for air circulation and to protect it from fruit flies
  • Rubber band

Steps

  • Boil 4 cups of water.
  • Add hot water & tea bags to pot or brewing vessel.
  • Steep 5-15 minutes, then remove tea bags.
  • Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
  • Fill vessel most of the way with purified water, leaving just 1-2 inches from the top for breathing room with purified cold water.
  • Once the liquid has come to room temperature, add SCOBY and starter liquid.
  • Cover with cloth cover and secure with the rubber band.
  • Say a prayer, send good vibes, commune with your culture (optional but recommended).
  • Set in a warm location out of direct sunlight (unless vessel is opaque).
  • Do not disturb for 7 days.
  • After 7 days, or when you are ready to taste it, gently insert a straw beneath the SCOBY and take a sip. If too tart, then reduce your brewing cycle next time. If too sweet, allow to brew for a few more days. Continue to taste every day or so until you reach your optimum flavor preference. Your own kombucha Tea Recipe may vary.
  • Decant & flavor (optional).
  • Drink as desired! Start off with 4-8oz on an empty stomach in the morning, then with meals to help with digestion or as your body tells you it would like some more! Drink plenty of water as it is a natural detoxifyer and you want to flush the newly released toxins out.

KOMBUCHA RECIPIE #2
Ginger Lime Kombucha Recipe – Gingerlicious!

Ginger-Lime-Kombucha

Ginger is perhaps Kombucha’s best friend, producing delicious fizz and flavor. Citrus pairs
well with Kombucha. These instructions call for flavoring after the brew.

Supplies

  • 5-6 teaspoons green tea/3-4 reusable tea bag
  • 1.25 cups evaporated cane juice
  • Fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Fresh ginger slices
  • Mint leaves

Steps

  • Boil 4 cups of water.
  • Add hot water & tea bags to pot or brewing vessel.
  • Steep 5-15 minutes, then remove tea bags.
  • Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
  • Fill vessel most of the way with purified water, leaving just 1-2 inches from the top for breathing room with purified cold water.
  • Once the liquid has come to room temperature, add SCOBY and starter liquid.
  • Cover with cloth cover and secure with the rubber band.
  • Brew only 6-7 days
  • Decant into bottles already flavored with ginger (to taste) and lime juice (no more than 1/2 ounce per 16 ounce bottle) and allow to second ferment for 3-5 days, burping each day to prevent explosions. Once desired fizz is achieved, move to fridge.
  • I also like to add 7-8 mint leaves per cup while drinking this tea.
  • Note:My secret tip? Once you’ve tried secondary flavoring, try boiling the whole ginger root right in the water you will brew with to infuse the flavor in a totally different way.

KOMBUCHA RECIPIE #3

Chia, Orange, Honey Recipe- Ch ch ch chia!

Chia-Orange-Honey

Supplies

  • 5-6 teaspoons green tea/3-4 reusable tea bag
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-2 Tsp honey per 1 cup
  • 1 slice of orange per 1 cup
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seeds per 1 cup

Steps

  • Boil 4 cups of water.
  • Add hot water & tea bags to pot or brewing vessel.
  • Steep 5-15 minutes, then remove tea bags.
  • Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
  • Fill vessel most of the way with purified water, leaving just 1-2 inches from the top for breathing room with purified cold water.
  • Once the liquid has come to room temperature, add SCOBY and starter liquid.
  • Cover with cloth cover and secure with the rubber band.
  • Let ferment somewhere dark in room temperature for 7-10 days.
  • The more sugar you’ll add, the faster kombucha will ferment and become carbonated.
  • Once the kombucha has fermented and you are happy with your brew, empty the tea in a glass bottle and refrigerate.
  • You can add 1 tsp honey along with 1 slice of orange in 1 cup of tea while consuming it.
  • I love Chia seeds. I add these to the ‘bucha at the very end after the kombucha has been carbonated. Use 1 Tbsp of chia seeds per 1 cup of kombucha. Stir in the seeds and allow them to absorb for a few hours, keep stirring every once in a while to keep them from clumping.
