I didn't have anyone to get a SCOBY from, so I grew my own from a bunch of tea and a store-bought bottle of Kombucha. Into the cupboard she went.
About three weeks of fermenting and there she is, lovely lady growing on top.
I then made a new batch of tea,
put the SCOBY in, and let it ferment for another week.
After my first batch, I've now made three more and its safe to say the family is hooked. Is it making any positive changes to our guts? Hard to say. Is it delicious? Heck yes! So we'll keep going either way!
*To sweeten/ferment further, I've so far tried:
- Mint and agave
- Candied ginger
