This recipe is for fruit flavoured Kombucha Tea
2 black Tea bags
2 green Tea bags
2 fruit flavoured Tea bags (you can mix them)
4 litres (140 fl oz) Pure water, rain or spring
300 grams (10 oz) White sugar
1 Kombucha tea mushroom
400 ml (1 3/4cup /14 fl oz)Kombucha tea (mother tea), from your last brew or obtained with the mushroom / fungus. If you don't have enough mother liquid
Boil the water in a stainless steel pot, add sugar, turn off heat and stir sugar until dissolved. Add teabags and let soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove tea bags and allow to cool. Strain and pour into fermenting jar. Add the fungus and mother tea to the jar. Cover and leave for one week in a place free from contaminants such as mould, cooking fats etc.
Strain this brew with a fine cloth or paper towel after removing the tea bags as some fruit or herbal teas leave an oily film on the top of the brew. This will not kill the culture however it will help the culture if you occasionally do a brew with the basic brew.
My favourite fruit flavour is Blackcurrant or blackcurrent and rosehip
