I’ve known about Kombucha since I was about 15 years old. My mom used to make it but of course back then I really wasn’t concerned about my health. Hence the countless hours I spent baking in the sun, and junk food I consumed on a daily basis.
Kombucha is a beverage the ancient Chinese called the “Immortal Health Elixir?” It’s been around for more than 2,000 years and has a rich anecdotal history of health benefits like improving digestion, boosting energy, reducing stress, and helping your immune system.

I’m going to give you a crash course on how to make Kombucha because it’s actually pretty simple. Also, you’ll save a TON of money by making it yourself. You’ll spend up to $4 a bottle if you buy it at the store. You can find all the supplies you need on Amazon. You can watch my how-to video at the end of this post or find me you YouTube. I’ve also provided a PRINTABLE RECIPE for you.
Use a strainer then a funnel when pouring out the tea into the flip top bottles. Leave a little room in the bottle to add some juice or powder for flavoring. Check out my Holiday Kombucha Video.
Close the flip top bottles and let ferment again for a couple more days if you want it to be carbonated. If you don’t like carbonation then just store directly in the fridge until you’re ready to drink.
Please feel free to add more tips or information in the comment section of this post. Also, I ‘d like to hear if anyone else out there has made their own Kombucha and what your experience with it has been.
