I LOVE playing around with Kombucha flavors. It is one of the most creative aspects of Kombucha and it provides for an infinite amount of variety!
Last time I mentioned using honey in the flavoring phase. This time I’m focusing on herbs from my garden!
Jasmine – I place a couple of star jasmine blossoms in my Kombucha and it infuses the KT with a beautiful perfumey bouquet. It has a natural sweetness that tastes exactly how it smells – drives me wild! “Jasmine is an astringent, anti bacterial, anti viral, cooling and bitter herb. It stimulates the uterus, calms nerves and is reportedly an aphrodisiac for women.”
Lavender – A little bit goes a long way. Just a couple of flower heads with some of the leaves still attached is all you need. Delicious and relaxing. Great for a night time brew.
Rosemary – I add a medium sized sprig and the flavor is quite nice! I crush it a bit in my hands before adding to the KT to make sure I release the lovely oils. Adds a nice depth to the KT. Rosemary is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6.
