Today we’re offering up an amazing kit for making your own healthy kombucha tea at home.
Kombucha is a fermented, lightly effervescent, probiotic tea drink. It’s made by fermenting tea and sugar using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) commonly called a mother.
While the exact origins are still unknown, Kombucha is thought to have originated in Northeastern China. It has been traditionally consumed in China for centuries, but it’s popularity slowly expanded into Russia and eastern Europe. Recently, This tasty tea beverage has expanded around the globe because of its live probiotic cultures touted by many as the key to a healthier gut.
After making their own for decades, Jessica and Eric Childs founded Kombucha Brooklyn in 2009. They started with making and bottling their own recipe of delicious Kombucha in Brooklyn. Then they expanded their business to include 1/2 gallon kits, so people could easily brew their own at home. These kits come with everything you need to get started, including a voucher for a free fresh, live “SCOBY” culture.
Every time you brew a batch of kombucha, you’ll grow a new culture, which means you can then create two more batches—or give a SCOBY to a friend so they can get started brewing, too. As long as you keep the culture alive, you can keep making a never ending supply. Like winemaking and beer brewing, the art of transforming tea and sugar into probiotic kombucha follows a special fermenting procedure, but once you get the basic formula and brewing process down, you can start experimenting with flavorings! Add a dash of lemon juice, fresh ginger, or fruit to create one tasty batch after another.
