ABOUT SUMMER SHIPPING
I continue to sell and ship cultures in summer. Doing it for over 5 years now gave me the confidence in how hardy these cultures are.

Rest assured, I do my best to ensure you get your item in good and viable condition. I also now offer USPS Priority Shipping which can be selected at the checkout.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR KOMBUCHA
You need:
- 1 tablespoon black tea
- 1/4 cup cane sugar
- 1 quart water
- 1/4-1/2 cup active kombucha
- 1 kombucha scoby culture
"Active kombucha" is the kombucha from the last batch of your kombucha. Or you may obtain the liquid from any store bought kombucha that has not been pasteurized (which most have not). Or Apple Cider Vinegar can be used instead of prepared Kombucha.
Directions:
- Clean hands, workspace, and utensils before touching the scoby
- Boil water in pot.
- Add tea and turn off heat.
- Add cane sugar, stir until dissolved.
- Let steep until cool with lid on.
- Strain tea into bowl.
- Add active kombucha liquid.
- Place in glass jar.
- Add kombucha "mother" with opaque side up.
- Cover with a mesh cloth, other cloth or loose lid.
- Let sit in a warm place for 4-14 days. Brewing time will vary based on the temperature and depending on how sweet/tart you like it.
Make sure to save 1/2 cup of kombucha for your next brew.

Sugar
Any raw sugar, white sugar, evaporated cane juice, organic cane crystals, sucanat sugar. Don’t use honey! Honey has antibacterial properties that can harm the bacteria and yeasts found in Kombucha.

Teas
Common teas used are black and black/green teas(½ & ½) Don't use Earl Grey or any other teas with oils. Oils will damage the scoby.

If you encounter a problem, please give me a chance to help you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or requests
Happy brewing!

***Do not use if allergic to any ingredients (sugar, black/green tea)!
