We brew 34 grams of Tie Kwan Yin Oolong in a gallon of distilled water. After steeping 30 minutes we transfer it to our big jar with 1 2/3 cups of sugar. After letting it cool we add 1/2 to 1 additional cups of water, 2 cups of starter buch and transfer the SCOBY. Our fermentation time this time of year is eight days.
We harvested this on 4/11 and flavored it with 1/4 cup of strawberry puree, fresh from the farmer’s market and 1/2 tbsp of sugar. We’ll do a 2 1/2 day (no more!) 2nd fermentation.
