  • Add room temperature tea into the jar. Cover jar with a dish cloth and secure with a rubber band.

Green Tea Kombucha v1

  • Brewed for 14 days (weather in the 70s)
  • Success: Unique green tea flavor. More sweet than vinegar taste. But should use spring water next time, not tap water.


Green Tea Kombucha v2

  • Brewed for 14 days (weather in the 70-80s)
  • Partial Success: Flavor is quite strong in vinegar, too much for me. Need to brew for short time when weather is hot.
