  • How to flavor homemade kombucha

    Ok all you kombucha makers, I need some help. I made up a batch of kombucha at home (black tea), and aside from being a little sweet (my candy fiend wife added the sugar when we first brewed the tea), I think it's great. my wife, who really wants to have kombucha on a regular basis isn't wild about it. We both love GT's ginger flavor, and we want to try to give ours that flavor..., how do I do that? do i just drop some grated ginger in while it's fermenting? Is there some trick to flavoring it? If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

        You can add the flavor of choice for the second fermentation, I like using organic blackberries.

          also, if you let it keep fermenting it will get less sweet.

            I add shaved ginger to the bottles at the secondary fermentation stage . Every bottle gets ginger. To that I add a couple tablespoons of fruit or juice. Passion fruit puree, sliced strawberries and sliced dried apricots are fabulous.
