I talk to my kombucha mushies and they tell me what they need. this is no joke. recently i have been rinsing my mushrooms in purified water and letting them sit outside in the sun. They are alive and i get this amazing sense when i am preparing them, like they want the best life possible and together we can create a simbiotic relationship. Relationships with our food?! outrageous!
1 cup Goji Berries
4 bag Green Jasmine tea , steeped in hot water
3 bag Goji Green tea (or Crannberry Tea), steeped
6 cup water
3½ tablespoon Honey or Agave
1 Happy Healthy Kombucha Mushroom!
Start with a clean happy Kombucha mushroom. If you don’t have any starter tea, go to the store and buy a goji kombucha in a bottle. Let your mushroom steep in this store bought kombucha to soak up healthy cultures.
Boil 6 cups water
While water is boiling add 1 cup Goji Berries to Starter tea (either store bought or what you already had from previous batch).
Steep 4 green tea bags w/ 3 goji tea bags (or crannberry tea- something red with flavour)
Let tea cool to room temperature
Add Mushroom, healthy kombucha starter tea, and Goji Berries.
Put in Large Mason Jar
Cover with thin natural cloth and hold with rubber band
Bless Kombucha (or at least say a few nice things to it, after all, it is making you your tea for you – that’s hard work! all that sleeping, and eating and floating).
Store in Dark, Warm cabinet for 1 to 2 weeks (depending on how strong you like.)
Take down, say hello, greet new baby and pour yourself a glass.
Pour Tea in jar (without mushroom), seal and refridgerate for 1 or 2 weeks – this will create that nice carbonated fizz.
