I have a confession to make.
I've been buying kombucha ready made that the store.
That's right, the resident tea queen at the farm, has been buying ready made kombucha. That expensive kombucha, you know the one. Even though I have a whole 600 square foot space reserved for tea ingredients and all the things to make my own, much more affordably.
It's hurting the pocket book though and it's time stop that madness.
Is this you? Are you spending $3-5 dollars a bottle on your kombucha habit? There are better ways!
Join me in making simple, and MUCH more affordable kombucha at home, with SO many more flavor options! You won't be sorry.
Ahh summer! Your sunshine makes one want to "squeeze the day," yet it is also draining at the same time. Your long days allow for large amounts of time spent sowing and reaping the harvest from the summer garden, basking in the sun out on the beach or in the orchard or hiking the mountains of our Cascade forest.
Those activities really require a lot of aerobic action and at the same time produce a lot of perspiration. Losing precious minerals and salts in the process. Leading to achy muscles, nerve issues and exhaustion.
Time to grab the Gatorade! Oh wait... bad idea. Dye filled, processed sugar laden, nay high fructose corn syrup filled, junk. Seems like two steps backwards. Time for some natural electrolyte drinks and there are many to choose from.
With spring in the air, dandelions in bloom, and seed planting up on us, I'm also dreaming of cooler drinks over hot ones.
While there is always room for a good cuppa hot tea in the morning, the warmer weather has me turning to iced and sun tea as well as cold, bubbly, kombucha. There is just something about that fizz that is refreshing after a hot day out in the garden.
In our family of 6, brewing kombucha with the batch brew method doesn't cut it. It just doesn't make enough tea for all the thirsty people in our house and so we use the continuous brew method for making our kombucha. Plus continuous brew kombucha is faster, easier, and simpler to make.
