I'd like to try and make some homemade Kombucha
. I love the Synergy Kombucha drinks you can get at places like Whole Foods, but at $4 a bottle they are beyond my budget these days.
I have heard Kombucha has tonic qualities, but I don't know how true that is. I know that I've always enjoyed drinking it, though, and that is reason enough to have a go at this.
I'd like to try to make a tea that tastes a bit like the Synergy drinks. I know that I most likely need a mother culture, and I think I can purchase one locally - but I wonder if anybody here has experience with this amazing bittersweet fermented live drink? Any tips for flavorings and/or process would be appreciated.
