Darjeeling Bärbucha Kombucha
Aktualisiert: 24. Aug.
Darjeeling is a single tea Kombucha and a new addition to our Classic Line.
It is also made in a different way than the other four Kombuchas 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 one, 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 tea that we use, is a very good Organic variety of the black tea, and we are very happy with the fruity notes (mostly dried fruits), that come out of it, in our Kombucha.
The cold-steeping process takes a couple of days. As with all of our Kombuchas, 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.
A final product - just look at those beauties!
And with a little bit of sun light!
And an amazing shot at sunset, by the Baltic sea.
Ingredients: Filtered and Revitalized Water, Live Kombucha Cultures, Unrefined Brown Sugar, and Darjeeling Black Tea
