Kombucha tea

Posted on | February 17, 2009 | 3 Comments

I’ve been reading on the internet, that if I buy a bottle of raw kombucha tea, I can grow my own “scoby” (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast). So, I bought a bottle of kombucha tea:

It is currently sitting in a quart mason jar, capped with the ring & 2 coffee filters (to let air in, but not dust & other contaminating particles), in a dark cupboard for the next couple of weeks or so.

Here’s to hoping.

    Okay, I’ll bite.
    What does it DO for you?
    And how does it taste?

    It's a probiotic drink, so it's like yoghurt on crack as far as the good healthy stuff. I've read it helps with things from weight loss & PMS'ing & healing the gut to loads of other stuff.

    As for taste, I've read it can taste like fizzy apple cider, to fizzy apple cider vinegar. I don't know the answers to any of your questions yet though, because I just started & cannot speak from experience, LOLOLOL.

    Google kombucha tea. You'll find loads of info on it. For less than $4, if it does none of the above, I've lost very little.

    Just found your blog and I’d like to follow it but can’t find the link.

    BTW I’m in South Central MT. I just started a blog, so distant relatives can keep up to date on what’s happening in our lives.
