- 1 x SCOBY
- 4 cups Filtered water
- Black tea
- Jar (3L)
- 1 passion fruit
- 4 mint leaves
- 1 Cup Raw Sugar
Boil 4 cups of water.
To a jar add 4-6 tea bags, cover with boiling water.
Brew for 15 minutes, remove tea bags, add 3/4 cup-1 cup of raw sugar, stir until dissolved.
Top the jar up with cold filtered water, cover with paper towel, Let it cool down to room temp.(3-6 hrs)
Add the starter liquid (that you get given with the SCOBY) then add the scoby ( the whiter side up) cover with paper towel and rubber band and leave in dark place for 10-14 days.
After about 10-14 days* you can taste it with a straw each day and once you are happy with the flavour you can bottle it in a flip top bottle. Add 1 scooped out passion fruit and a few mint leaves. Leave in the cupboard for 2 days, opening the bottle slowly to release gas. *if you prefer a more tart flavour, brew a bit longer, but be sure to check every day. It ferments faster in warmer temp
**BOTTLE** (makes a few bottles)
Open bottle carefully over the sink, strain and re-bottle into your Fressko flasks. Here we have used the LIFT 500ml Fressko Flask.
