Hibiscus Kombucha!

I love experimenting with new Kombucha flavors!

Kombucha is a big hit in my house and everyone has their favorite flavor. My daughters love Hibiscus Kombucha!

They love the sweet and tangy flavor of the hibiscus and the deep red color that it makes the Kombucha.

Isn’t it pretty?!

Hibiscus Kombucha

What I love about Hibiscus Kombucha is the amazing health benefits!

Not only are you getting the nutritional qualities of the Kombucha, but you are benefiting from the hibiscus as well!

Multiple studies have been done using hibiscus and they suggest that hibiscus might be helpful in assisting the body with regulating blood pressure and cholesterol.

Historically, hibiscus has also been used to relieve menstrual pain, depression and to reduce inflammation.

There are lots of health benefits that hibiscus is used for that have not been proven by studies yet as well. Hibiscus has been used for centuries all around the world!

So, you can see why I get excited about Hibiscus Kombucha and why I make it for my family!

If you can find something that your kids like AND that is good for them, that is definitely cause for excitement!


Before you begin!

First, if you are new to making your own Kombucha (or even if you are not new;) be sure to check out Why You Should Use The Kombucha Continuous Brew System.

The Continues Brew System is the best and easiest way to make Kombucha. Not only will it save you lots of time, but it will keep you in steady supply of Kombucha that is actually more nutritious! If you haven’t tried it you really should! It will change your life!

Also, be sure to check out The Best Tasting Kombucha Tea Blend! This tea blend makes an amazingly smooth tasting kombucha full of amazing health benefits!

What you will need

Ok, first let’s go over our ingredients and supplies. If you are using the Continuous Brew System this will be really easy! With it’s easy fill spout, filling bottles is a dream!

1. Bottles.

I usually use bottles that I have saved from store bought Kombucha, or you can purchase these glass bottles that are the same size.

I also want to start experimenting with these swing top glass bottles to see if they will make a more fizzy second ferment.

2. Dried Hibiscus Flower Petals

I prefer using these whole hibiscus flower petals because they are easier to remove from the Kombucha after it is made.

But, it is easier to measure out the finer pieces because they scoop into a measuring spoon easier. So it’s really whichever you prefer. I have used both and either way the flavor will be the same!

3. Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

Fresh lemon juice is the best! Store bought lemon juice often contains preservatives which are not only harmful for you, but will be harmful for the Kombucha bacteria as well.

How To flavor your Kombucha!

Ok, now that you have your few ingredients, let’s make delicious Hibiscus Kombucha!

1. First, add 3-4 tsps. of dried hibiscus petals to each bottle.

This is also a matter of preference. The more hibiscus you add, the stronger the flavor will be. We prefer 4 teaspoons in our Kombucha!

2. Next add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice per bottle.

3. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha! Fill it all the way to the top.

4. And finally, you are going to screw on the lids and put your bottles in a dark cabinet.

You want to allow your Kombucha to complete it’s second ferment. This will take anywhere from one to three days.

You need to leave it for at least a full 24 hours to give the Kombucha time to eat a portion of the natural sugars in the flavorings.

Of course the flavorings we are using today do not contain sugar like fruit juices do, so you really only need to leave it long enough to achieve the flavor that you want.

Leaving it too long will cause it to become vinegary because of the lack of sugar.

If you want a more mild flavor then let it sit for 24 hours. If after 24 hours the flavor isn’t strong enough for your taste, then let it sit another day.

The longer you leave it the more fizzy it will be. But do not leave it longer than the three days. Leaving it longer than the three days will increase the alcohol content of your Kombucha, making it unsafe for children.

And that’s it!

Wasn’t that easy?!
