Blending your Kombucha with different Teas!
what kind of Tea can be used to brew Kombucha?
Answer: All tea's that are unflavoured AND come from the plant Camellia sinensis. FYI here are some teas that are made from the Camellia sinensis plant: Balck tea, white tea, oolong tea, green tea, pu-er tea and a few more.
Flavouring your Kombucha!
Flavoring Kombucha is a lot of fun and is something that gives you the ability to be super creative. The Possibilities are limitless, you can add good quality fruit, veggies, herbs/ spices, roots, dried fruit or even jam and syrup/cordial. And the best thing about it is that the beneficial elements present in the flavourings such as nutrients, antioxidants and minerals will be absorbed into the kombucha and broken down into forms that are easier for the body to absorb. How good is that 😊 ! By the way, you can experiment with varying amounts of different flavourings to find the balance you prefer.
