One of the greatest parts of making your own kombucha at home is the ability to experiment the flavor of your finished kombucha tea, and also find new flavor combinations that you and your family will enjoy.
You can affect the flavor of kombucha tea by choosing a different tea, adjusting the fermentation time, or adding flavoring.
In the last email, we talked about the different kinds of teas you can use in your kombucha and in this email, I'm going to share with you some of the flavorings I love for my kombucha tea.
When brewing kombucha tea, we recommend fermenting for about 14 days. After 7 days though, your kombucha tea has done some fermenting and can be enjoyed. The less time you fermet, the more sweet and less acidic it will taste. Likewise, the longer you ferment, the less sweet and more acidic it will taste. (we recommend up to 30 days)
Once the initial fermentation period is complete and the scoby has been removed, you can drink your probitic drink as is or choose to add additional flavoring.
If you decide to flavor your kombucha, you can either enjoy it immediately or ferment further, for a more developed taste in the final brew!
What can I flavor my kombucha tea with?
Flavoring kombucha tea is fun, and there are countless combinations for your booch creation.
My personal flavor is ginger hibiscus, but I've made a number of other creations which include:
By using different fruits and herbs, and pairing with different teas, you can come up with many tasty kombucha flavors which you can enjoy and love!
