Buchu Kombucha Recipe

Buchu Kombucha Recipe


  • 7 bags Buchu tea
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 litre boiled water
  • 1 cup kombucha starter
  • 1 unit SCOBY
  • 150g mixed berries, frozen or fresh


  • Make the tea base by adding the tea bags and brown sugar into a large jar.
  • Pour in 1 litre of boiled water, and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Allow the tea to seep and cool completely. Remove the teabags.
  • Pour the kombucha starter into the tea, add the SCOBY and cover the jar with a cheesecloth, wrapping an elastic band around the mouth to secure the cheesecloth. Leave to ferment for 3 days, or until there is carbonation and preferred acidity.
  • Remove the SCOBY. Tip: Place the SCOBY in a jar, cover with kombucha and set aside for next batch.
  • Pour the kombucha into a bottle with an airtight lid, add the mixed berries. Close the lid and allow to sit at room temperature for a day, to allow for second fermentation (opening the lid once, to release the carbonation build up). Strain the kombucha.
  • Store the kombucha in the fridge to slow-down further fermentation once desired carbonation and flavour is reached.
