Easy-Peasy Kombucha Recipe from The Chronic Spoonful Kitchen

When I tell people I make my own booch, they look at me cross eyed–but I tell them I have an easy-peasy kombucha recipe that will save them soooo much money and trips to the grocery store. Honestly, how much money are you spending on bottles of kombucha from the store where you can’t even control what ingredients they’re putting in there?!

Basic Booch Supplies You’ll Need

While we have this great video over on our YouTube channel that you can follow step-by-step for making our Easy-Peasy Kombucha recipe, we’re also listing the supplies you need below, and where you can get them. There are also plenty of places online where you can step up your game and add flavors, find brewing systems, and more.

We’re not that advanced over here. I tend to just like a simple booch. However, I have done lavender, mango, hibiscus, and other flavors…but I always gravitate back to the plain kombucha.

  • 1 Gallon Glass Jar <–this one comes with a cloth and rubber band for covering. Yay!
  • 4 tablespooons of tea (approximately 5-6 black teabags of regular tea–but because I am a tea snob, we use a mix of 2T of green tea and 2T of Assam Mangalam)
  • 1.25 cups of sugar (preferably organic sugar, but regular sugar works fine, too)
  • 1 scoby (you can make a scoby yourself, but sooo much work. You can order one with the starter liquid or get a scoby from a fellow kombucha maker.)
  • Starter liquid (this is just some kombucha, which often comes with the scoby. Or you can buy a bottle of booch from the store. Just make sure it is unflavored!!)
  • Coffee filter or cloth square
  • Rubber band or string
  • Funnel
  • Sieve/Strainer
  • Brewing bottles with swing tops

Easy-Peasy Kombucha with Breaks

One reason we do call this an easy-peasy kombucha recipe is that you don’t have to hover over it the entire time. My chronic illness, POTS, tends to require that I sit down frequently. Standing and cooking for long periods isn’t in my Spoonie wheelhouse. This recipe allows you to sit and take breaks when you need to.

Also, it’s a totally forgivable recipe, because if you let it sit for an extra day or two because your brain fog made you forget what day it is, or you left the teabags in the water to steep for 40 minutes, or you had to sit before you put the scoby in the jar–all of that is okay! You’re NOT going to break your booch. Easy-peasy, right?
