Jun Chiyabari Bärbucha Kombucha
Next one in our Premium Line selection is a Kombucha out of exceptional black tea that comes from a tea estate in Nepal. The estate name is Jun Chiyabari and that is how the tea is called - Jun Chiyabari Black. The tea garden was established as Organic in 2001 & it was officially certified in 2012. The tea gardens are located at the altitudes between between 1650 and 2200 meters above sea level.(1*)
They specialize in various high quality teas, this particular black one has stolen our hearts (and taste buds) right from the very beginning.
But why? How about this for an answer - the predominant flavor profiles of this tea (and of Kombucha) are chocolate & malt. So a malted chocolate. And that makes this Kombucha a dessert Kombucha. And who would not want a dessert Kombucha for a change?
So, here's how we make it. Starting with a filtered & revitalized water at the right temperature & our unusual black tea.
Next comes our unrefined brown sugar that we use in all of our Kombucha.
And that's how this tea looks like after straining.
And the dark chocolaty broth with intoxicating aroma - aka our tea for Kombucha.
Next comes the Scoby & the starter liquid. Then it's time for primary fermentation.
In the mean time we have to get our bottles ready.
Next comes the bottling day.
Have you noticed that beautiful chocolaty color of our Kombucha?
So when all the bottles are filled, closed & stamped with the production date, it's time for the so called second fermentation.
The purpose of the 2F is to naturally build up the CO2 inside the bottles. And yes. the key word is naturally, as we do not force carbonate our Kombucha.
And when that process is over, then it's time to move our Kombucha into the fridge for further conditioning. That will take another week or so.
When that is all done, this particular Kombucha is ready for the ultimate enjoyment.
