Unfortunately the weather was so warm I didn't expect such a quick ferment and after a week, it was not very palatable, so I poured the overbrewed kombucha into a 3 spare jars and within a week I had 3 healthy new scoby's! Great to have some spares. It took me 3 tries to get the balance right, in the end I used a lot less starter tea and reduced the size of my scoby by tearing it gently and added around 2 litres of green tea & sugar. We were rewarded with some tasty stuff which my 6 yo cannot get enough of!
I proudly showed one of the local ladies my scoby, she laughed at me and said only old people have those. They are really hard to come across! How sad in a country where culture and traditions are still valued and going strong, that these traditional foods are disappearing! I hope I can spread the word over here! ;)
