Kombucha 2.0 Version

As with anything, the more you make it, the more you become an expert at making it.  I have a few new tips and a fun way to JAZZ up your plain ol' kombucha.

1.)  I have found letting the tea bags seep for 10 minutes and THEN adding the sugar and bringing it back to a boil produces a better quality kombucha.  Don't know why, but it works. So, tea first, sugar second.

2.)  JAZZ kombucha is as simple as adding a tablespoon or so of chia seeds.  I am loving the chia seed and have been trying to incorporate it my diet.   When the kombucha is done fermenting, I put it in a bottle with a bit of cranberry juice, fresh squeezed lemon and a tablespoon of chia seed.  If you are using a larger bottle, add three tablespoons.  Let sit for the second ferment for 1-3 days, refrigerate for 1-3 days and then drink.  AHHH!
