Made Kombucha Herbal Vinegar
prescribed for a
specific individual (not a broad category of disease) may be added after the
Kombucha (brewed with normal Black Tea) has "aged" 14 days or
longer. This lowers the pH and has a vinegar tasting quality to
it. Due to its lower pH the Kombucha itself may last quite a long
time. However the brew is still alive and as such will interact with
added ingredients such as herbs and spices - which may degrade and form
mold. Therefore it is advise to use completely within a few days. If you
are using our own Happy Herbalist's Pure
Distilled Kombucha Essence than mold will not form.see
adding herbs to Kombucha
there is considerable interest in food as medicine. One popular
"Super Tonic" is the combination of vinegar with Onion,
Garlic, Ginger, Hot Peppers, Horseradish and honey. You can easily
substitute your Kombucha brew for vinegar and adjust to your taste. BTW

simple easy recipe for those that eat eggs and drink K-T
EGG SHELLS form your eggs. We of course recommend using only organic
eggs. BTW we also recommend poaching the eggs but cook the eggs any way
you choose. Thoroughly rinse the egg shells and allow to dry out. Crush
the shells and add to aged Kombucha Tea. The more sour the more better.
Add enough K-T to completely cover the egg shells plus 2-3 inches over
the top, leaving 2-3 inches of air space. Cap the container and
allow to sit for a few days shaking occasionally. The egg shell will
dissolve and your K-T will now be fortified with calcium. The health of
this drink is theorized in the 1931 German Patent.
advantage of this is that the sourness of the aged K-T will be
neutralized by the calcium.
A further development,
if you choose, would be to evaporate the K-T Calcium mixture. The simplest
efficient method would be use a stove top double boiler.
