My friend came over to teach my mom and I how to make our own Kombucha. It’s really good for your health and tastes good!! You can learn about the good health benefits of kombucha here. Read more to learn how to make your own awesome drink!
What you will need:
A Quart Mason Jar
8-10 bags black tea (or any kind)
Gallon GLASS contianer
Scoby – you can buy it here
Now! Let’s get started!!
First, you want to tamper the glass so that it doesn’t crack – after that fill the mason jar 3/4 of the way full with hot water.
Add 8-10 bags of black tea. You want to let it sit for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes have passed, grab a pair of gloves and SQUEEZE! You want to get all of the tea out of the bags.
Let it sit for a while until it becomes room temperature – this is really important!!! Add a cup of sugar into the mason jar.
Put all of the liquid into a gallon glass container **NOT METAL**
Then add some water until it is filled up to here:
Then, add the mother Scoby to the container – you can buy this on amazon or make your own!
The Mother is slimy!! Be careful when you are holding her, because you won’t want to drop or harm her.
Place her carefully into the glass container.
Now pour the rest of the liquid that was in the container from the mother into the glass container.
You can smell it – it actually smells really good!
Now, cover the glass container with a coffee filter and a rubber band – this will let it breathe.
Now, let the kombucha sit in a dark corner for a week. If you want it to be less sweet, have it stay in the corner for a week and one day.
Check back tomorrow for Part 2 of what to do next with your Kombucha!
