Kombucha Spice Up the Flavor At Three Stone Hearth, flavors include the original black tea kombucha, hibiscus, lemon ginger, and grape. After you feel confident creating a standard brew, try fermenting different white and green teas. For different flavors, add two to three ounces of fresh squeezed juice to each bottle when pouring the brew into the bottles for the second fermentation. In terms of serving size, Otto notes, "Kombucha is a concentrated food sources of probiotics. We recommend starting with four ounces. See how your body responds to it. Different people have different reactions. Ultimately anything, even yogurt, can be harmful. It just depends on your system and what certain amount is functional for your system."

How add chia seeds and maca powder to your already brewed kombucha

  • Recipes for Natural Living

    Ok. so I totally tried the chia seeds but not the maca powder. My seeds didn't turn completly opaque like store bought booch w/ chia. Next time I'm going to soak my seeds in a little water or herbal tea, wait for them to hydrate and THEN add them to my booch. That should work nicely me thinks. :)

    TROPICAL KOMBUCHA -10 C water -10 Tropical tea bags (I use Celestial Seasonings) -1/4 C sugar Once your kombucha has finished it's first fermentation do the following: Boil 10 C water. Add 10 Tropical tea bags and 1/4 C sugar. Steep. Place the pan in a cool water bath to cool the tea. After the tropical tea has finished cooling, add 1/2 C tropical tea to each bottle (I use 16 oz bottles myself), top off with kombucha tea and ferment for at least another 4 days.

    GINGER KOMBUCHA -6 C water -6 ginger tea bags -1/3 C sugar Once your kombucha has finished it's first fermentation do the following: Boil 6 C water. Add 6 ginger tea bags and 1/3 C sugar. Steep. Place the pan in a cool water bath to cool the tea. After the ginger tea has finished cooling, add 1/2 C ginger tea to each bottle (I use 16 oz bottles myself), top off with kombucha tea and ferment for at least another 4 days. *This is a good basic recipe but I'm currently experimenting with adding Lemon Zinger tea, a 1-1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, and 1/2 T. of pureed ginger. We like the stronger ginger flavor found in a particular commercial kombucha brew we have had so I'm trying to increase the spice/flavor. The recipe I just included is mild re: the spice/flavor.

    STRAWBERRY PUREE I noticed that GT's strawberry kombucha uses a "puree" whereas I had just been adding a few strawberries to my bottles for a my 2nd fermentation. I decided to try a puree and see how it did. The taste is *wonderful*! It has a nice, strawberry flavor and puts your booch back to the side of a tad sweet. I didn't get as much effervescence as w/ the whole strawberry recipe but I don't know if that's because I left a tiny bit of headspace at the top of my jars so they didn't explode. I'm also wondering if it was because the puree had a touch of sugar in it. I'll play with it more next week when I make it again and will ammend the recipe if needed. When I did the puree for my 10, 16 oz bottles, I did about 1/2 a bag of frozen, organic strawberries and about 1/3 C of water (just enough water to cover the strawberries half way up the strawberries) and a little bit of sugar to sweeten. Heat it until the strawberries are soft and then blend w/ blender or hand blender. Let it cool, add 1-2 T of puree, add kombucha and then bottle. Wait a few days and then begin to drink. :)

    GRAPE KOMBUCHA -2 oz purple grape juice -Add 2 oz of grape juice to your bottle and fill the rest of the way with kombucha. *I might add a little more grape juice next time though.

    PLEASE NOTE! ADDING FRESH FRUIT TO YOUR 2ND FERMENTATION MAY ADD EXTRA CARBONATION AND COULD CAUSE YOUR BOTTLES TO EXPLODE. A GOOD RULE OF THUMB IS TO PLACE YOUR BOTTLED BREW IN A BOX IN A ROOM OR CABINET WHERE IT WON'T CAUSE HARM IF A BOTTLE DOES EXPLODE.
