Kombucha…It’s as easy as making sweet tea!

 Kombucha is essentially fermented sweet tea.  That’s right all you southerns reading.  Sweet tea - in a fermented form. 

Water. Sugar. Tea. 

Making Kombucha is as simple as brewing a big batch of tea the way you would for a Southern - cause if there isn't any sugar it’s just dirty water.  
The thing that changes this sweet tea is something called a SCOBY or Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast.  Yummy!  I know sounds gross which is why you just say SCOBY, but the process really isn’t any different than the fermenting and bubbling that happens with a sourdough starter.
