Product Overview (Prononuced: Kom - Boo - Cha)
- What is Kombucha, and how is it made?
Kombucha is a variety of fermented tea. Making Kombucha is quite a simple but interesting process, not too dissimilar to making beer. Each and every master brewer has their own special recipe, taking years to perfect.
Lets quickly touch on some of the basic steps. The first step it to steep the tealeaves in hot water, traditionally black or green tea leaves are used. The tea is then strained, removing the leaves. Sugar is added to feed the good bacteria that will soon begin the kombuchering (I made that word up) process! The tea is cooled and the SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) or Mother is added to begin to what is known as the first ferment, which can take anywhere between 3-30 days depending on PH, ambient temperature and recipe.
After the desired ferment time has been reached the SCOBY is removed, the Kombucha is strained and bottled, at this point fresh fruit, herbs or spices may be added directly to the bottle for flavour. Once the bottles have been capped the fermentation process continues at a much slower rate. Now that the bottle is sealed, any Co2 produced by the slow ferment causes the Kombucha to become lightly carbonated.
