Mmm Kombucha!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this stuff? It's a probiotic beverage and it's pretty cool. It's effervescent like kefir but it's not in a dairy based product which I love since I am dairy free! the one I am drinking has blue-green algae, chlorella and kombuca. The guy at the store said it was nasty but I don't think so at all! Can't wait to try the other one~ B)

Each bottle has 1 billion live probiotic cultures from the kombucha!

be well!

Sorry for double post... ;)

Here is how to start a kombucha culture

I found it online...

You can start Kombucha from some kombucha that you buy at the store.

Start with a jar of plain (unflavored with juice or other flavors) kombucha.

Brew some very strong black tea - I used four tea bags for 1 quart of spring water. Add 1/4 cup of sugar. It's easier to add the sugar when it's still warm. Brew the tea for several hours.

Mix equal parts of the brewed tea (room temperature) with room temperature kombucha in a glass container with a cheese cloth cover. Place in a warm, dark place and leave undisturbed. You should grow a baby in about 2 weeks.

Be well!

OK, I learned something new. When I first read your post, the drink you described sounded nothing like the kombucha that I am familiar with, which is a broth like "tea" made from kelp. The following passage explains it all.

This comes from wikipedia.

The name Kombucha is derived from the name of a Korean physician, Kom-bu, who introduced the drink to the Japanese Emperor Ingyō in the year 414 AD as a healing drink. The drink became known as Tsche of Kom-bu (Kombu cha).

To add confusion, Kombucha is a Japanese word denoting a tea-like infusion (cha) made from brown kelp (kombu). This Japanese Kombucha is not fermented and does not contain parts of the tea plant. It is not sweet, but sometimes it is salted. It tastes like a thin soup and it is a favourite food for convalescense of sick persons who cannot yet eat stronger food. The Japanese name for the drink made from the tea plant is koucha-kinoko, which means black tea mushroom.
