Traditional No Tea Recipe # 1

Kombucha tea was traditionally made from sugar and black tea, but an even older recipe calls for sugar, elder berries, and rose hips.  
For a gallon size batch use 1 1/4 cup sugar and 3 teaspoons of elder berries and 3 to 6 teaspoons of rose hips.  This makes a very
nice fruity kombucha drink with lots of vitamin C !  Brew as per normal instructions and remember to use a back-up/extra culture
when experimenting with new recipes.

Traditional Seasonal Recipe # 2

Try this recipe in the spring when the raspberry and blackberry leaves are young and fresh.  You may choose a mixture of equal parts
of any of the following berry leaves; bilberry, raspberry, blackberry, or black current leaves.  This can make a very medicinal
kombucha tea blend.  Try adding an equal part of rose hips to add more flavor to your mix.  For a gallon batch use your normal
amount of sugar (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups per gal) and 1/2 cup of fresh leaf total.  Allow leaf to steep for 10 to 20 mins to infuse into the
sugar solution.  Strain out leaf and organic matter and add kombucha culture when cool.
Herbal Recipe # 1

This is a recommend recipe from Günther Frank's book, 'Kombucha - Healthy beverage and natural remedy from the far east'. He
highly recommend this for those who would like to make kombucha without caffeinated teas.  It goes as follows;
3 parts Yarrow flowers/tops
2 parts Dandelion leaf or root (cleaned)
1 part nettle leaf
1 part club-moss or plantain leaf

Make the KT as normal substituting this herbal blend in the place of the tea.  The mixture is said to give a pleasant tasting beverage.  
You could get this made for you by an herbalist or get the herbs from an good source.  Remember to use double the amount for fresh
herbs over died herbs. If collecting your own herbs clean them very well.
