      Steps

      1
      Done

      Bring 1 Litre of Spring Water with the Sugar (1 Cup) to the boil and then remove from heat.

      2
      Done

      Add the 5 Tea Bags to the hot water and allow to steep for 4 minutes (The longer the tea steeps, the stronger the kombucha flavour will be).

      3
      Done

      Remove the Tea Bags and add this sugary tea to the remaining 2 Litres of water in your storage container.

      4
      Done

      Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and then add the SCOBY (Kombucha Culture).

      5
      Done

      Add the Starter Tea (1 cup of kombucha from previous batch or if you dont have Kombucha, add 2 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar).

      6
      Done

      Cover the container with muslin cloth or a clean cloth (this allows the fermentation to breath) and store undisturbed for 1 week. Taste the Kombucha, it should be slightly sour/sweet but if it is too sweet allow it to ferment for a few more days. Fermentation can take between 7 and 30 days depending on temperature and taste requirements.

      7
      Done

      Once the taste is just right, bottle the kombucha and refrigerate. A second fermentation can also be done to add flavours to your kombucha. Remember to keep a cup of the kombucha (for a starter tea) and your SCOBY so that you can brew a new batch of Kombucha.
