Kombucha Starter Recipe
You can start your own kombucha without having a starter from a friend. And here is how you do it!
This is what you need:
filtered, boiling water
1 Cup organic white sugar
6 bags of plain black, organic, unflavored black tea
2 bottles of original, store bought kombucha
Large jar (about 2 quarts)
Dissolve sugar in water.
Add tea bags and steep for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Squeeze out teabags and discard.
Pour tea into a large jar.
Fill the jar the rest of the way (almost to the top) with filtered water.
Cover tightly with cheese cloth and rubber band. (note: you can use a piece of cotton but be sure it's clean but not by heavy detergents.)
Put in cool dark cabinet away from chemicals.
