Kombucha Mushroom Tea
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is composed of a number of bacteria and special yeast cultures in a symbiotic relationship. This living organism ferments sweetened tea to become the Kombucha beverage. The refreshing taste gives one a felling of well being. The amount of living yeast it contains gives the Kombucha beverage an active life which continues after decanting it into bottles. Kombucha has become increasingly highly regarded as an aid to preventing many illnesses.
The Tea now travels around the world again where it is passed on from one
friend to another as a token of appreciation and love. This Tea appears to be a
miraculous remedy for many types of suffering and helps with your bodies
awakening and transformation process.

How to makeKombucha Tea.
You need a mushroom from a friend, us or through a mail order or health food store preferably along with a half to one cup of starter tea from a previous batch. The mushroom is a white pancake shaped culture of bacteria and yeast. The texture and color is similarish to a jelly fish.
The basic Recipe that we use is 2 bags of Black Tea (any type, Organics best, but I have just used Lipton's) and 1 bag of organic (or other such as Lipton's) Green Tea brewed in a Glass Sun Tea Jar. Then add 1/2 to 2 cups of Sugar (regular white sugar works fine, it's just fuel for the mushroom) and stir to dissolve with a wooden spoon. (do not use metal in making or storing the tea) We prefer Sun Tea (bags and water, in jar, set in the Sun for a few hours) but you can boil water and make it the usual way - be sure that the tea is at room temperature before adding the mushroom! Also, be sure to wash your hands before handling the mushroom too.
After the tea is made and at room temperature and the sugar is added, place the mushroom in the jar and add the starter tea (one half to one cup) from a previous batch. The mushroom usually floats to the top or occasionally will sink to the bottom for a while and then rise to the top later.
Cover the top of the Sun Tea Jar with itís screw on top, cheese cloth or material that will keep the bugs out and let the air in. Use a rubber band to secure the clean cloth to the jar. (Fruit flies are attracted to the sugar in the tea.) You can put it over the plastic top, but leave the vent open.
The Kombucha mushroom metabolizes the sugar to make the beverage which will contain a very small amount of alcohol (less than 1%). It tastes a bit like apple juice/cider vinegar with a little fizz to it and sweet taste. The taste will become less sweet the longer you brew it and will have a tart taste and may burnish your throat if it goes too long, but it gets more powerful. You can dilute the tea with sweeter newer tea, filtered or spring water if the tea gets too strong.
It takes from 6 to 15 days to produce the beverage. Usually in the summer it will take less time to make a batch, it goes faster the warmer it is. In lower temperatures it can take longer. Taste test it and draw off the tea into bottles when you like it's taste. Store the finished tea, in a glass or plastic bottle, in the refrigerator or the fermentation will continue. Some people filter the tea through cheese cloth. We usually don't. Some make it in a dark or dim cupboard, warmer makes it go quicker.
There will be a baby Kombucha mushroom connected to the mother
mushroom that you can peel apart and give to a friend after each batch or two. Store the baby in a plastic baggy or container in the refrigerator with a small
amount of tea and pass it on to a friend. Don't eat the mushroom!
Wash the jar out between batches and rinse the mushroom in cool water. Use pure alkaline, filtered, spring, or distilled water to make the tea with. Enjoy an ounce or more every day as you prefer.
