One of the things we regularly "create" here at the Beehive is Kombucha, a fermented tea drink - slightly bubbly, slightly tart, pretty darn yummy!! Travis usually tends to the SCOBY (the Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast - someone correct me if I'm wrong), but I've been wanting to delve into the world of Kombucha, so at this month's worker bee I gave it a go!

The "ready" Kombucha (been fermenting for a little over a week) was strained and poured into a jug to be stored, sealed, in the fridge. The SCOBY is left in a small amount of the Kombucha to keep it happy until more tea is added.

Recipe for the tea:

per 1 Litre of water
- 1 heaping tbsp black tea
- 1/4 cup sugar

Boil everything together, then let it cool.

Add the tea mix to SCOBY and let it "cook" in a warm place ... until it tastes YUM!
