I have been a Kombucha brewer for a few years now, and I have always made it simple, using organic tea, spring water and organic sugar. I've had my Scobys for years and have given away more than I can count off hand. I've heard, read and seen that you can step it up using additional ingredients and do more with it than just drink it. Until I received this book, I never made the move other than to use a strong Kombucha tea in place of vinegar. Well, now I have to admit, I see the opportunities, am truly a convert, and I am not looking at those 3 gallons I have sitting on my counter as something just to to drink, but a new hobby. Wow! The authors begin the book appropriately with 'What is Kombucha? What are the health benefits, and just how do you make it?”. The lesson on brewing tea properly, with the correct temperatures, the correct way to boil water (yes, there really is, can't do it too long or you will have flat water), the tools you need and proper steeping times were my first eye openers to an actual art. There are hints from master brewers and ideas for infusions that are equally delicious and healthy..
I made a few of the recipes so far and have been pleased with the results. There are chapters on Juices and smoothies, spirited and non spirited cocktails followed by dressings and dunks. There are surprising recipes using Kombucha in food for main dishes, salads and even a sourdough starter. The recipe portion of the book ends with sweets and ices.. so you can gather for sure, there is something for absolutely everyone in this healthful recipe collection for a unique and beneficial drink you can easily make on your own.
I recommend this attractive, organized 151 page well designed book to anyone who has any desire to take one more step in the control of their health. I was given this book for review and it is my honest opinion.

SKombucha Revolution covero begins the introduction to Kombucha Revolution, the new book by Stephen Lee, founder of Stash Tea, Tazo Tea and Kombucha Wonder Drink, with co-author Ken Koopman.
Lee goes on to describe how he first discovered kombucha on a tea-selling trip to Russia by snooping into the bedroom of an elderly woman named Mrs. Lisovski (to whom the book is dedicated). Amazed by the effervescent, tangy, slightly acidic and very pleasurable drink, he then carefully transported home a “baby” SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) to start his own kombucha brew and help bring a kombucha revolution to the United States in the early 2000s.
The introduction explains how to assemble your own kombucha kit and the proper care and feeding of your own SCOBY. New kombucha brewers will want to pay particular attention to the first recipe, entitled “Stephen Lee’s Master Plain Kombucha Recipe,” to get the basics down. The recipe is not much different than those you will find online (including my personal recipe here), though I was surprised to see that his version calls for 3-4 times as much tea leaf or tea bags than I was taught to use. In order to properly review this book, I made my next batch following his directions. It pained me to use an entire box of expensive organic tea in a single go (what can I say… I am frugal!), but the taste was excellent.Read more ›
While there are several books on the market which guide home brewers in the basic steps to make their own kombucha brew, Lee, who is famous for his worldwide tea brands, Stash, and Tazo, goes a step beyond in suggesting delightful kombucha-based recipes for creative cocktails, desserts, and even main dishes. My favorite summer beverage choice is the Oh-So-Nice-Float, which is a healthier twist on the classic ice cream soda float. Who knew there could be so many new and interesting ways to incorporate this bubbly, effervescent probiotic beverage in the kitchen? Lee's Kombucha Revolution is a refreshing reference and recipe book in the world of fermented foods. I am thankful to add this to my recipe collection.
Purchase the Kombucha Revolution book and enjoy these recipes today! I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
