Homemade Kombucha Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 SCOBY (you can purchase this at a local health food store). I bought mine at Rebecca’s #Rebeccasnaturalfood @Rebeccasnaturalfood

  • 4 green tea bags (I used organic)

  • 1 cup organic sugar

  • 1 gallon of water

Instructions

  1. Boil 64 oz of water (8 cups) in a large pot.

  2. Add 4 green tea bags and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Remove the tea bags.

  3. Add 1 cup of sugar and stir well.

  4. Allow the tea to come to room temperature and pour into a clean one-gallon mason jar or crock.

  5. Add 64 oz more water to the jar and place the SCOBY (along with any KT it came with) into the jar.

  6. Cover with cheesecloth or towel, and secure with a rubber band.

  7. Allow the homemade kombucha to ferment in a dark place (mine was in the pantry) for 7-10 days. Remove the scoby and store it in a glass container for you next batch. After this add a cup of organic fruit or berries. I strained the kombucha and fruit before bottling to get rid of any pulp. Bottle in tight sealed glass bottle or jar. Let it sit at room temp for 3 more days and then put it in the fridge to cool. Then enjoy!
