Kombucha is tea!

So I got a bottle of the Original. And poured about 1/4 of it into a cup to try. (New things every 2-4 weeks, don’t ya know.)

It tastes like super mild apple cider! The really yeasty stuff my mom gets!

SOLD.

Used the rest of the bottle, tea (Assam Mangalam from Zen Tea and Nepal Black from DavidsTea), and sugar, to start my own culture!

Apparently you can use flavoured teas? Ooo… the possibilities are endless.

I will definitely be making an apple kombucha. And serving it to my mom. Just to see what she thinks.

:D

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
