I found this Kombucha home brew kit at Homegoods!  I have to order the scoby online, so I’ve been waiting until I know I’ll have time to give this a try!

Not familiar with kombucha? Kombucha is a probiotic tea.  The Kombucha Brooklyn website says:

“Through the power of fermentation, regular tea is transformed into a nutritionally alive drink that nourishes your body with compounds that detoxify, energize, support your immune system, streamline your digestive system, clarify your skin, prevent disease and elevate your mood.”

This stuff has a specific taste.  It is almost vinegar-ish but I’m in love with it.  The first time I tried it, I didn’t like it.  I read about it on a blog and gave it a try but couldn’t finish the bottle.  For some reason, I tried another one later on that was a berry flavor.  I loved it and have loved it ever since.  There are multiple brands and some can be found in the grocery store.  The only problem is that it is expensive! ($3-4 a bottle)  When I saw this kit I thought I have to give it a try!  I’ll let you know if I’m able to make my own tea!

Do you drink Kombucha tea?
