Oh I’m so excited. I got my scoby or culture in the mail yesterday to start brewing my own kombucha beverage. (Kombucha is a fermented tea drink just in case you didn’t know.) The farm where we buy our milk and chickens has delicious kombucha, but it is $3/quart or $5/half gallon. I just can’t spend that much on a drink when I can brew it myself, so I located a culture and started my own brew this morning.

Long ago, when I tried kombucha, I didn’t like it because it was too vinegary for my palate, however, our local farm makes it sweet/sour and it is perfect. When you ferment your own you can adjust fermenting times to suit your own personal taste.
Kombucha is also a healthy drink.
Here is my jar of tea, that tan colored thing floating on the top is the scoby.
