Research & Development
The kombucha koolerator in your local grocery store is a showcase of commercial brands. To clone your own delicious home-brewed batches, spy, buy, and try: take cell phone camera pictures of ingredient labels; purchase bottles with the most appealing flavors; taste test at home.

Once the primary fermentation is finished, the kombucha is ready to be consumed, but take the secondary fermentation step and buy, grow, or forage adjunct flavorings for a bucha boost of flavor.
Make sure that the rose buds are food grade without added perfumes or chemicals. Add a few cherries or a pinch of hibiscus for a rosey hue.
To complement the delicate flavor of lavender buds, pitch a wee bit of lemon zest. Plop in some blueberries for lavender-like coloring.
