Kombucha may just be the cultured food that has gotten the most buzz as of late. You can find it in health food stores, farmer’s markets, and local breweries.
But kombucha has a long and rich history. It is no pop-culture fad, though it may be in our own culture.
Our family’s first foray into kombucha came from a store-bought bottle I picked up at the health food store. I brought it home, tasted it, and immediately fell in love. My skeptical husband said “No thanks.” when I offered him a taste.
Eventually he came around and loved it as much as I did, but neither of us liked the price. We found out we could make it at home for less than 20 cents per bottle and we were sold. Who knows how many gallons of our beloved “bucha” have come out of our kitchen since.
What you really need to get started, though, is a kombucha SCOBY (culture), some tea, and the instructions. Today’s giveaway includes just that… and more.
Today we’re giving away a Kombucha Tea Starter Kit that includes:
- Kombucha Tea starter culture
- Organic Black Tea (enough for the culture activation batch)
- Plastic mesh strainer
- pH Strips
- Instruction and Recipe Booklet
Add some sugar and you’ll be brewing up your own homemade kombucha in no time.
