Last night I brewed some tea so that we can make a SCOBY mother. That SCOBY mother will allow us to brew kombucha.
The process involved boiling 2 cups of water and adding 2 tea bags to steep (i.e., I made tea). I then poured the tea into the jar, and poured the (baby) SCOBY--found floating in bottles of kombucha--into the jar. I covered the jar with mesh cloth and put the jar into a dark closet. The jar will sit in the closet for about 4 weeks until we have a SCOBY that covers the surface of the liquid.
Here's a video that explains the process:
Here's a second video on how to make the SCOBY mother:
Here's a video of how to make kombucha once you have the SCOBY:
Happy holidays, btw. Ring in the Solstice Bells!
