How to get started with kombucha

Kombucha is basically fermented sweet tea…a deliciously fizzy health drink that packs a powerful probiotic punch.

You can definitely buy kombucha at the grocery store, but it can quickly escalate into an expensive habit.  Making kombucha at home will save you money, plus you get full control over the ingredients and flavor profile. 

  1. First of all, you’ll need a SCOBYMore about kombucha SCOBYs here.
  2. Next, you’ll need tea.  My favorite is a mix of green and black organic loose leaf (see below).
  3. You’ll also need a large jar.
  4. And finally, you’ll need bottles for the finished product. 
  5. Optionally, you may want to flavor your kombucha.  At our house, we keep our flavoring simple with frozen fruit or essential oils.

Why all the fuss about kombucha?

Do you ever get tired of drinking water and tea?  Or maybe your family could use a healthy substitute for sodas or sports drinks?  Kombucha is just the ticket.  

The fizz will remind you of soda, and the enzymes and probiotics provide a healthy way to replace electrolytes.  As a mom, I love knowing that kombucha nourishes my family.  And my family loves that they get to drink something other than water!
