Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture. It has been around for hundreds of years. It was very much in vogue in the 70's hippie communities (and suburban eastern-European households), to become mainstream in the past 5-6 years. Buying kombucha can be an expensive habit: at almost 6$ per bottle, it adds up quickly. Making your own will cost you pennies, and you can vary the flavours and fermentation levels and adjust them to your family's liking. This Box contains detailed guide on kombucha preparation, what kind of tea is best to use, how to start a second fermentation process and what to do if you want different flavour but without additional work. You will receive. A detailed guide on the best types of jars and equipment to use, and also a bonus section on 'perpetual fermentation'.
Water kefir part is dedicated to water kefir, a dairy free drink made using water kefir grains, or crystals. It's a great solution for those who are dairy free as unlike milk kefir grains, they thrive on sugars and not lactose. Making water kefir is an easy process, but to obtain a flavourful result, there is some tweaking involved - otherwise the end product albeit healthy won't have much flavour. I will guide you through the process and help you discover your favourite version of this healthful drink!
