DIY Kombucha

What's kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented tea. “Booch” flows at coffee shops and health food stores. It’s extremely trendy. But, many people still don’t know why it’s good for them.

Kombucha’s bacteria – the good kind of bacteria – supports everything from immune function and mental health to nutrient absorption.

Ehris, the Kombucha Queen, has been brewing kombucha since she was a teenager – long before it became a trendy health food drink. If you can make tea, you can make kombucha!

 

What’s it taste like?

Picture sparkling apple cider with a tang of vinegar.

Kombucha was first mentioned in 212 BC, during the Tsin Dynasty in Asia. It’s been known as the “Remedy for Immortality.”

 

Are you ready for this?

The best part? A 16-ounce bottle of store-bought kombucha averages about $4.00. Brewing your own costs about 6 cents for 16 ounces!

“Is making fermented foods safe?”

Without a doubt, that’s the most common question we’re asked when we teach a fermenting class.

 

Fearlessly Fermenting!

Humans probably started fermenting foods about 12,000 years ago — at the dawn of civilization. The traditional methods of fermentation continue to work well. Today, it isn’t commonly done at home because people have been brainwashed to fear bacteria. Obviously, basic food-safety guidelines must be followed. But how did it get to the point that we don’t trust ourselves anymore and think there’s danger lurking everywhere?

 

In these confusing times of lockdowns and fearmongering, it’s crucially important to build your immune system!

First and foremost, eating or drinking any fermented foods, like kombucha, will improve your immune system’s function. About 80% of our immune system is in the gut. The probiotics contained in fermented foods will help balance the existing good bacteria in your gut.
