Three Steps of Kombucha Process
Oh! by the way, for your information since I love doing whatever I want, end up use Earl Grey Tea for my Kombucha tea. Seriously, I realized on my mistake after the second day of fermentation. I was ...like ...let God decide on my Kombucha tea.
I place the SCOBY into the glass bowl together with some tea from my first fermentation jar as a starter for the next batch of first fermentation. I decide to use green tea on my next batch. If you are not ready to do the second batch, you can always place the SCOBY with the starter tea and feed it with some sugar in a glass jar which we call it SCOBY Hotel. Since I want a continuous supply of Kombucha in my fridge. So I started the second batch at the same time with first batch second fermentation.
This is my first batch of Kombucha after 5 days in the fridge. I flavour it with nutmeg, lemon and honey. My Kombucha taste really flat and sweet after 5 days. I left it another 7 to 10 days in the fridge and the taste getting frizzier and not sweet but it is to my liking.
