I’m brewing up a simple black tea this morning for breakfast as well as for kombucha. I’m behind on my brewing and I need to get back on the booch! I think I’ll make lemon ginger, sour cherry, and strawberry mint with this brew batch. My friend recommended the strawberry mint combo and I can’t wait to try it. If you’ve never brewed your own kombucha, I highly recommend you give it a try.

How do you make your kombucha? Although I’ve tasted it before, I’ve never actually brewed it myself.

It’s actually pretty easy to brew. You’ll need a scoby culture to get started, and I’d be happy to send you one of mine with a little starter kit. I bloged about the brewing process here: http://bit.ly/jhPfCJ . I can send you a list with specific measurements if you like. The first brewing process can take from a week to a month depending on your taste. Then you can add flavor if you like in a secondary fermentation that I explain here: http://bit.ly/jhPfCJ Someone was kind enough to get me started brewing kombucha, and I’d be thrilled to pay it forward if you’re interested :)

CRAP! Please disregard the second link in my post above. This is the real link to the secondary fermentation process: http://bit.ly/9GRhWr Sorry about that.

Mmm… fat Elvis donuts… I don’t think that’s the link you intended, but it sounds like the right link to me! ;) I am interested in trying this. I usually buy kombucha at Whole Foods, but sometimes it doesn’t taste so great.

Ha! Okay, so I’m having some problems with my URL shortener today. If you click on one of the crazy links, just go to recipes and seach for kombucha and the posts will pop up. Homebrew is far better tasting than the store bought versions in my opinion because you control the flavor. Say the word and I’ll happily send you a scoby and a starter kit :)

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
