Flavouring Kombucha Tea

Feel like you’ve mastered the process of making regular Kombucha and want to experiment further? Flavour your Kombucha with some creative, distinct flavours to personalise it even further!

This process will begin from the second fermentation so, if you’re still new to Kombucha, check out the original post here. In terms of the method, they all follow a similar process so here’s just a few of my examples to get you thinking about some flavour combinations. I like to include ginger in my recipes due  it’s strong, intense flavour as well as the various health benefits!

4. Add some sugar if you want that extra fizz, pour in your Kombucha tea and seal with an air tight lid or cling film.

5. Leave to ferment at room temperature for about 3-4 days with an extra day in the fridge.

6. Pour it through a siv to filter out the bits and bobs and divide as desired.

I like to keep mine in the fridge to have as a refreshing beverage over ice. Equally you could pour it into a smaller bottle and take it out with you!
