Did you know that Kombucha is fermented tea that uses a starter called a SCOBY, and ginger root fermented in spring water is the starter for ginger sodas. Once fermented both can be flavored with a variety of ingredients. My favorite is to add 100% fruit juice to make ginger sodas. I like to mix ginger starter with the black tea kombucha for a gingerade.
I have kept new batches going continuously since I started up again last month from a few month hiatus. I’m on third round since I started up again in May of the black tea kombucha, but stopped after 2nd of green tea kombucha. I saved enough green tea kombucha to start a new batch. I want to get some bulk green tea leaves at my local food cooperative where I’m a member, that’s Ever’mans in Pensacola, Florida.
There are many health benefits to be had from the probiotics that kombucha and ginger starter sodas generate. That is a lengthy subject and although I’ve posted information before, I won’t repeat in this post today.

Below are a couple pictures from yesterday.
