One of the few things I really missed when moving back to New York from Texas in 2005 was GT's Kombucha. I became highly addicted to this fermented probiotic tea drink in Dallas, which was plentiful and cheap-ish but next to impossible to find here in NYC. For the first time in my whole life, I actually wrote to a company wondering where I could find it. A few years later it was everywhere and for twice the price. I still love the stuff but have been wanting to make it myself at home. A few weeks ago I got my hands on a Scoby or 'symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts' from Eric of Brewed in Brooklyn vis-a-vis the Kombucha class at BK (I recommend it to all). Fermentation is under way my friends and I couldn't be more excited.
