  • Add 0.5% to 1.5% w/v sugar, according to taste

Earl Grey

  • Earl Grey (black tea with bergamot essential oil)
  • 0.25% w/v (i.e. 25g per 10l of brew)
  • Hot infusion with boiling water for just 5 minutes, to avoid bitterness
  • Add 0.5% to 1.5% w/v sugar, according to taste

Fruit Juice

  • Red grape, apple or other suitable fruit juice
  • 3:1 mixture of Kombucha and juice
  • Just mix, bottle and store in fridge

Caution: Kombucha with fruit juice produces a lot of gas! Skip secondary fermentation and open carefully after storing for longer than two weeks!
