Hi,
Does anyone else like to brew their own Jun or Kombucha? I just started my very first batch of Jun this weekend and I'm excited to see how it turns out. What are your favorite flavors? Any helpful hints or experiences shared are appreciated.

My entire experience with brewing my own tea is "place Lipton Tea bag in cup, pour boiling water into cup. Wait 5 minutes"

Best of luck!

Tang always gave me canker sores, too acidic! Although it is delicious...

they do still make and sell Tang...and also...

The creator of Tang, William A. Mitchell, also invented Pop Rocks, Cool Whip, a form of instant-set Jell-O, and other convenience foods

Well I tried my first batch yesterday, raspberry. It was ok, a little sweet. I think I need to let it sit longer for the next batch.

Happy, our FFA still makes that tea for their concession stand they run. It's still a hit with the old timers.

I've thought about attempting my own but too many people in the house to find a safe place to let it ferment. I do like the ginger kombucha. My granddaughter who loves sauerkraut and kimchee thinks it's disgusting LOL
