How to make it
- Heat the water to about boiling then add the sugar and let fully dissolve

- After tea is at room temperature open SCOBY container and pore the starter liquid into the tea Gently place the SCOBY mat white side up and float it on the top of the tea and return the filter over the top.
- If not a lot of starter liquid came with the SCOBY you will need to add a few teaspoons of organic apple cider to decrease the pH.
