Begin the Kombucha experiments!

About a week ago I found myself absolutely craving a Garbanzo Grill burger and Jon’s amazing home brewed kombucha tea.¬†Unfortunately, this little gem of a food stop is on the other side of the country from me.

Jon is in the process of preparing to ship his burgers, which will be a start. (Although it’ll never be quite the same as nibbling on one under that big old oak(?) tree.) But I can get kombucha down at the health food store and….

Nah, still not the same. So I decided to try my hand at it. With a little help from my friends, I found several online how-tos, went to Cliftonatty and got myself a nice big bottle of live culture tea, and am starting a SCOBY. Here’s a photo of what it looks like after 5 days, with a little added sweet tea.
