Kombucha

3 quarts  water

3/4 cup sugar

3 TBSP loose back tea or six teabags

1 1/2 cups mature acidic kombucha

Kombucha mother 

 

Mix water and sugar and bring to a boil. 

Turn off heat, add tea, cover and steep about 15 minutes.

Strain the tea into a glass container--preferably something wide.

Allow the tea to cool to body temperature.

Add the mature acidic kombucha.

Place the kombucha mother in the liquid, with the firm, opaque side up.

Cover and store in a warm dark spot, ideally 70 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. 

After a few days to 1 week, depending on the temperature, you will notice a skin forming on the surface of the kombucha. Taste the liquid. The longer it sits, the more acidic it will become. 

One it reaches the acidity you like, start a new batch and store your mature kombucha in the refrigerator. Each generation will give birth to a new mother, and the old mother will thicken.
