I remember when my kids were little, my mom used to make Homemade Kombucha all the time and give it to them to drink. She would call it “Magic Potion” and I think that because she called it that, they sort of liked it.

I, myself, couldn’t stand what I referred to as “Mushroom Juice”. I tried to like it because it was supposedly good for me, but it never worked. I despised the stuff so much, I had to block my nose to drink it.

I guess you can very well imagine that I never quite understood the craze around Kombucha and why people were willing to dish out 3, 4 and even 5 bucks for a single bottle of the stuff!

Still, one day I decided I had to give it another chance. Hey, maybe I’d changed enough in all those years that I would now appreciate it? After all, it had been well over 15 years since I’d last had some.

Before I could get started, I needed to get my hands on a few mandatory supplies:

#1 – A LARGE CONTAINER FOR THE KOMBUCHA TO FERMENT IN

#2 – SEVERAL GLASS BOTTLES TO KEEP MY KOMBUCHA IN AFTER IT’S DONE FERMENTING

#3 – SOME SUITABLE TEA

#4 – MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL… I NEEDED TO FIND ME A SCOBY AND SOME STARTER TEA
