Green Tea Kombucha

Green Tea Kombucha is light and wonderful. It has a milder flavor than black tea, is lighter in color and has less caffeine. Green Tea has been said to increase the metabolism and improve cardiovascular function as well. Green Tea Kombucha is even more beneficial with good yeasts and probiotics!

Instructions

  • Bring 12 cups of water to a boil.
  • Add sugar and dissolve.
  • Add tea bags to water and sugar mixture
  • Turn off heat and let brew for at least 10-20 minutes. The longer you brew, the stronger the flavor.

  • Once completely cool, add your kombucha starter liquid and SCOBY.
  • Cover with a thin cloth or a towel and rubber band to secure.

  • Reserve 1 cup of starter liquid to use on your next brew.

Notes

Note* If storing in bottles make sure you use thick glass bottle made for brewing.
