Kombucha Flavours

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.
