How to Flavor Your Kombucha

1) Use flavored tea when making Kombucha

The flavored teas that I use are from The Republic of Tea, because I have found these teas to produce the strongest fruit flavors:

To make your Kombucha flavored during a SECOND FERMENT,  follow these tips:

2) Use fruit juice concentrate from the freezer section of your local co-op (organic of course)

  • The best flavors are the berry combinations
  • Let the can of juice come to room temperature
  • Use 1 Tbsp per bottle of Kombucha (16 0z bottles, I reuse THESE, but you can also use THESE)
  • Alternately, you can puree berries and use that, but I find it gets pretty murky in the bottle
  • Also, use fresh and bottled juices for a lower sugar option, using 1 Tbsp per bottle (this is the method I typically use because my kids don’t need extra sugar)
  • If it’s carbonation that you are looking for, I have found that pineapple and strawberry juice produce the most bubbly second ferment!

Do you brew kombucha? What flavorings do you use? I would love to hear about it in the comments below!
