I remember how we tasted the first batch from just received SCOBY. It was so delicious! The right amount of bubbles, sweet and sour taste – just right!
Now since I’m making my Kombucha that is tea (we received our SCOBY with 2 liters of fresh black tea liquid and had to wait for 5 days to taste it!) and sugar mix it doesn’t taste that good. It tastes too vinegarish with fewer bubbles. And at the end, it doesn’t reach the sweet and sour taste more like vinegar.
SCOBY absorbs the sugar and makes Kombucha drink, but mine seems to keep making vinegar whatever I do! I’ve tasted it every day: first – too sweet, second – too sweet, third – still sweet, no sour taste… the fourth – vinegarish aftertaste, but still sweet and no sour enough… no bubbles enough.
Where is the problem!? If you ever tried making Kombucha – let me know, maybe you know what’s the problem!
P.S. Pictures are from those good times we had with our healthy SCOBY!
