Hello water kefir friends,

for all tea lovers we have a new inspiration for your water kefir drink. Did you know that you can add tea to your water kefir when you start your water kefir drink?

And this is how it’s done: Just easily add 2-3 teaspoons or 2-3 teabags to your water kefir batch. During this procedure the water does not have to be hot or warm. You remember: hot water kills the useful living bacteria in your kefir culture. The so called cold extract is giving your water kefir a special aromatic note and you can get super creative. It does not matter if you take fruit teas, herbal teas*, black teas*, green teas* or a mixture of different teas. Everything is possible. Everyone will find his personal, perfect creation. I know you will love it! Just be careful to not use teas with artificial flavors to preserve the kefir.

If your kefir cold batch is ready, just add some ice cubes or fresh sparkling water and enjoy your kefir drink outside in the sun. This is a perfect combination for these hot summer days.

Tips:

If you use strong coloring teas, your kefir grains might get the same color. But don’t panic, after the next batches without tea, the color will get back to normal and it does not have any negative effect on your kefir.

Please do not use teabags with metal clips or remove them before using it to not harm your kefir crystals. Remember: Metall has an negative effect on your kefir cultures.
