Why make kombucha? What the heck is it?

  • “Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that’s made by adding yeast and a culture of bacteria to a mixture of black or green tea, sugar, and sometimes additional flavorings or fruit juice.” Learn more here
  • It’s loaded with probiotics to improve overall health, especially gut health and the immune system!
  • Easy & fun
  • Inexpensive! Pennies per serving

Rebecca will discuss the health benefits of kombucha, including what makes it so healthy, and then provide a step-by-step demonstration on how to make and bottle kombucha. There will be kombucha tasting of several different flavors as well as ample time for Q&A from the class.

Each person will receive directions and their very own S.C.O.B.Y. to start making kombucha at home!

S.C.O.B.Y. = Symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast = essential to making kombucha

Don’t delay! Register right away as classes may fill quickly. We also value our instructors’ time, so classes may risk being canceled due to low early enrollment. Thank you!
