Kombucha Flavours

October 9, 2016

I have been teaching workshops about Kombucha regularly. (It is a fermented tea that is a probiotic drink)   My next event is planned in Olds in January and details can be found on the events page of my website or Facebook page.                                                                                                                                            

 

 

 A very common question is what favours can I use? I thought since many of you that read the blog are now making Kombucha it might be good to share this info here.  I borrowed this  info off of the Kombucha Brew Crew Facebook page. Lots of GREAT flavor ideas here.
