Kombucha tastes pretty darn great. Imagine drinking a cold, refreshing, fizzy tea. That is exactly what kombucha tastes like! Our grapefruit kombucha is better than green tea, tastier than sweet tea and more exciting than boring old black tea. It is refreshing, bright, and completely delicious.
How to Make Kombucha
While you can find kombucha in lots of grocery stores these days (it is quite popular right now!), we like to flavor our own to ensure it has the freshest, most delicious taste possible.
Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, a little honey and a plain kombucha are mixed together. The plain kombucha can be replaced with a kombucha scoby and it can be used again and again, making endless batched of homemade kombucha.
Pour the mix into a glass jar, cover and let the drink ferment. The fermentation process only takes a few days and the result is a powerful, super healthy drink that will transform your day. One glass of this every day and you will surely feel great!
