How To Make Kombucha Tea
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 Continuous Brew System is the best and easiest way to make Kombucha.

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!
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.
Dried lavender flowers are so easy to add to your Kombucha!
And the lavender flowers that I use smell heavenly!
I love to inhale deeply from the bag when I open it to add to my Kombucha:)
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 Kombucha
Ok, now that you have your few ingredients, let’s make delicious Lavender Lemon Kombucha!
1. First, add 3 tsps. of dried lavender flowers to each bottle.
This is a matter of preference. I was really happy with the flavor using 3 teaspoons, but you can use more or less if the flavor isn’t what you want it to be.
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?
