Kombucha Tea, Cultures, Benefits and Hazards

Lovely Lazy Saturday October 6, 2007

That’s what this is. Absolutely lovely! I’ve walked the pups twice, gone to the library (yeah, I go about every other day. Or every day.) Cooked, and am currently working on crafts.

Every Sunday I host a little shindig called champagne Sunday– an event which is fun and wonderful, and includes an intake of calories that should last a typical human through the week. I yi yi. Maybe I’ll have to find an alternative to champagne? But nothing can touch the glamour of that bubbly-goodness. Unless, perhaps I concoct something bubbly with kombucha?

I’ll keep you posted.

Man, I love the taste of the last jugs of kombucha that Dave gave me. It’s so delicious! I may be drinking too much of it? Is that possible? I don’t know.

    hey vanessa!
    i just want to leave a comment, so you’ll know for sure that someone is reading your blog!
    thanks for doing this.
    i think it’s a brilliant idea.
    i started brewing kombucha about 3 weeks ago.
    i was quite impressed with my first batch.
    actually amazed that i could make something that tasted so good.
    i think it’s really, really hard to mess it up….
    but, i’ll try:)
    i live in seattle and it’s starting to get cold, so i’m expecting my brew time to take 5-7 days longer.
    we’ll see.
    i’m trying to see if i can curb my sugar cravings and i suffer from candida issues,
    so, i have absolutely no idea what the effect on that will be either.
    well thanks again and keep up the excellent work!

    Thanks Krizten! I’m glad SOMEONE is reading it. Kombuch a is pretty tasty, isn’t it? Let me know how your sugar craving-curb goes. I’ve not even STARTED to tackle that issue!

    I have been making my own kombucha for a while now and I have experimented with making some alcoholic beverages. I haven’t tried mixing with champagne but I have made some others. One really good (and potent) one is the Kombucha Margarita. When I’m bottling my kombucha I will combine it with a strong margarita then put a bottle cap on and let it sit for about 5 days outside the fridge. The result is a very potent, tart margarita that hardly tastes like alcohol at all and is nice and fizzy. I have also experimented with some Rum concoctions. You should try a Kombucha with your champage and let us know how it goes.

    I’m going to be trying that kombucharita too! and possibly naming my first born Kombucharita. It’s so catchy!!

  7. PB Says:

    Some of my friends commented on the Kombucharita name too. I also made a Kombucha Margarita with Rum instead of Tequila and labeled it the Kombucha-Rumarita. Many have commented that they drink the Kombucharita and have no hangover in the morning.

    So did anyone else try it? I had a batch a week or so ago that wasn’t as tasty as others…depends on the right mixture.
