Kombucha Tea

This is the info on the tea I have been telling some of my clients and friends about..

I have lost 20 lbs and feel awesome!

(*do your homework and research before you try it!)
if you dont want to invest the time, you can buy it at natures bin (bottled) and online as well..
~ Best luck to you all!

~! MY "How To" Guide - to Brew your own with a starter~"culture/mushroom"
(*remember..if thuis seems like more than you can deal with..JUST Buy it at "Natures Bin"- in the glass bottles!)


Things to remember…
1. Never use anything but clean clear,(no color)- glass container to raise and ferment the Kumbucha,(never ceramic, metal or plastic).
2. Use wooden (natural) spoon to stir and clean hands free of any detergents or bacteria.
3. Follow directions to the “T”, .if you ever see or think there may be any white or light color fuzzy mold on the “mushroom“.(discard and do not drink!)…*bubbling and a wet whitish look on the “mushroom” are ok and typical.
4. Keep fermenting tea in a warm darkish place, that is between 68” and 100” F.

Directions to prep tea.

Boil 1 gallon (=16 cups)of purified water (filtered or distilled) not straight tap water…(as the additives to tap water will harm the “mushroom”).
..Add in 1 cup of organic raw sugar (not bleached white)..stir until it is dissolved, turn off the heat and add 7 teabags to steep in the water for ½ an hour.(covered with a lid ).
Remove tea bags, and Let the mixture cool to room temperature (as long as it takes, keep covered) this helps keep fungus, bacteria and mold out.
Add the tea mixture to a large glass fermentation tank, then place the “mushroom” into the mixture …and add in the minimum..1 cup of Kumbucha tea.-(kept from last batch).
Once the “mushroom” and primer tea are added to the new tea mixture, cover the top with a breathable cloth-(clean!) and place it for 13 to 16 days (2 weeks is typical) -in a warm dark spot out of reach from small children and pets. (Do not touch or stir while it ferments for this time)

Once the”tea time” is up, you can separate the “baby (with your hands) keep at least one cup of tea to restart the next batch and, start again the process with all clean items.
