Black Tea and Honey Kombucha

2018-09-12 16:39 #0 by: jadekintz

I have been diligently making my kombucha every week and I have saved so much money versus buying it at the store. 

I love that I can make whatever flavors I want and that I am also reducing my waste by using mason jars. 

The latest flavor I have concocted in my kitchen is black tea and honey. I reduced the amount of sugar by about half due to adding the honey so it came out a little bit tart (which I prefer). 

What other flavors should I try?

Maybe early grey and rose.. or green tea with ginger and orange. 

Or is it only made with black tea? I have never made it.

I have never heard of 'kombucha'.

All the best, Leia

#1 You can do any flavor you like after you have your starter tea! I make a tropical green tea last time around and it was refreshing. I really like the earl grey and rose idea

#2 It is fermented tea :)

I have nerver done kombucha myself but I have heard that both rose and elderflower taste great with kombucha

Elderflower does sound good!

I don’t know if I have ever had elderflower 🤔 These are all great suggestions
#4 It is a lot simpler than you would think. It just takes a lot of patience waiting for the starter scoby to form 😊
