Darjeeling Bärbucha Kombucha

Aktualisiert: 2. Mai

Darjeeling is a single tea Kombucha and a new addition to our Classic Line.

It is also a bit different than the other four Kombucha in this lineup.

This one is cold-brewed.

We have done some experimenting with cold brewing and in this particular case, we were amazed at the results. So many fruity notes came through, the notes that were hardly distinguishable in a hot cup of this tea.

The name of this Kombucha comes obviously from a famous tea from India.

Darjeeling district, in West Bengal, to be more precise. Although the tea that is grown over there is processed to be a green tea, an Oolong, a white tea or a black tea.

But the best known is obviously the black tea.

Darjeeling can either be a cheap and not that exciting variety, or something very special. Like some of the "first flush", or the mysterious sounding abbreviations like SFTGFOP (Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe).

The Darjeeling that we use, is a very good Organic variety of the black tea & we are very happy with the fruity notes coming out of it, in our Kombucha.

The cold steeping process takes a couple of days. As with all of our Kombucha, we use a really good quality water and that water brings out the best out of this tea.

On the pic below you can see the tea right after it was put into water.

After only one day, it looks already dark and yummy.

Two days later, it's ever darker.

Here's a pic when we strain the tea:

From this point, it's the normal procedure with sugar, more water, a Scoby and the starter liquid. It's a week long journey of initial fermentation, and then it's ready for bottling.

And as always, the F2 to build up those lovely bubbles.

Final product - just look at those beauties!

Ingredients: Filtered & Revitalized Water, Live Kombucha Cultures, Unrefined Brown Sugar & Darjeeling Black Tea
