Today we’re going to be talking about how to flavor Kombucha, now there are several techniques and methods to flavor Kombucha, some of them are super-duper easy, some of them are super-duper advanced, today we’re going to be discussing the super-duper easy way to flavor Kombucha.
What I mean by super-duper easy is that, not only is it easy to physically do, but the risk of changing your Kombucha tea to something else, is next to nil, certainly the easiest way to flavor your Kombucha tea and that is simply like this…
You want to ferment your Kombucha tea by following a standard Kombucha tea recipe. We have it throughout our site, you can just google Kombucha recipe, you’ll find so many different types, and stick to a basic Kombucha recipe.
Then once your Kombucha is properly fermented you want to incorporate flavors when you go to bottle your Kombucha tea or when you go to drink and enjoy your Kombucha tea.
How To Flavor Kombucha Tea
What do I mean by this? Well you would simply brew normally and then when you go to bottle, let’s say you wanted pineapple flavored Kombucha tea, well fill up your bottle 4/5 of the way and add a little extra fresh squeezed pineapple juice to your bottle and cap it.
Now the only precaution with this is that when you introduce fruit juices, or I like to use, you can slice pieces of ginger, or raisins, craisins, even fresh fruit.
The caution with fresh fruit, is that you want to make sure that your Kombucha tea is at a PH level low enough so that if you are storing your Kombucha at room temperature, that the fruit will be preserved in an acidic environment.
So PH levels, I would recommend 3 and below, you should have no problem with having that preservative effect of fruit and fruit juice and dry fruit and what not in your bottled Kombucha tea, even at room temperature, because the PH is so low.
Man if only the Hawaiian punch guy knew about kombucha he’d be even more pumped then he is now… oh yeah!!!!
Ok Gang Till Next Time! I hope this helps add a little flavor to your day… and to your kombucha!
