Kombucha is an ancient drink, a form of fermented tea first brewed in China 2,000 years ago and popular all over the world. Some people believe kombucha to have healthy properties, while others drink it for the refreshing, fruity flavors.
Whatever it is, there’s no question that the popularity of kombucha is on the rise in the United States. If you’re a fan, you will quickly discover that purchasing your kombucha can get quite expensive! Brewing your own can cost as little as pennies per batch and you can make your own favorite recipes and experiment with new flavor combinations, too.
Librarian Teresa Schmidt started brewing kombucha as a pandemic project and will talk about how you can get started, too. You’ll learn about the terminology of kombucha, the simple equipment you’ll need, the ingredients, and how to flavor a fizzy, delicious drink. You’ll even get to taste a few samples!
This in-person class will be held in the Mercer Public Library on Tuesday, June 29 at 6:00 p.m. Those who are not vaccinated for COVID-19 are asked to wear a mask inside the building.
