Oh how we love Kombucha over here!  Tink and Bean are obsessed with it and I love how wonderful it is for our bodies.  Kombucha is filled with digestive enzymes, probiotocs, and boosts the immune system.  It tastes wonderful, has a great fizz, and is a great healthy alternative to soda.

Our family has been enjoying Kombucha for years, but I have never tried making it myself... until now.  The owners of The Kombucha Shop were so gracious to send me a starter kit.  This kit is amazing, it includes every single thing you need to brew your own Kombucha.  I was more than excited to get started.

The step by step instructions in The Kombucha Shop's toolkit made it fool proof.  Tink enjoyed helping me every step of the way.  She hesitated when it was time to put the scoby into the jar, but when I told her it would help make the Kombucha, she was more than willing to help.

I think the hardest part for everyone was waiting for the tea to ferment.  Every morning I would get asked, "Mom!  Is it Kombucha day???".  Once it was time for bottling the kids had the most fun.  I let them pick which fruits to flavor their Kombucha with.  Bean picked blueberries and lemon, while Tink picked mixed berries.

It was torture all over again when we had to wait 2-3 more days while it fermented for the second time.  On Saturday we were able to place it in the refrigerator.  That night we enjoyed the fruits of our labor (it really wasn't hard!!).  We all loved our homemade Kombucha.  We actually have already started the process again, and I am really excited to flavor it many different ways this time.  I would say, Bean's blueberries and lemon was my favorite!
