Jun Recipe

Makes 1 litre. Just double the ingredients to make 2 litres.

Things you need
  • 3 teaspoons loose leaf green tea
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • ½ to 1 cup of starter liquid (solution from previous batch of Jun)
  • A Jun SCOBY
  • Large 1.5 – 2 L jar with wide mouth, sterilised with hot water
  • Rubber band or string
Instructions
  1. Make sweetened green tea with Green tea in 4 cups of boiling water. Steep for 5 minutes or until cool and then dissolve the honey.
  2. Wait for sweetened tea to cool to room temperature and strain into a large jar.
  3. Add starter liquid and Jun SCOBY to the jar with the sweetened tea.
  4. Place a clean cloth or paper towel over mouth of the jar and secure with rubber band or string.
  5. Leave the Jar undisturbed for 3 – 7 days at room temperature (taste after day 3). Ideal range is 16 – 19°C
  6. Carefully remove the SCOBYs and ½ a cup of Jun tea from the top of the jar and reserve for your next batch of Jun. You will now have 2 SCOBYs but its best only use the newly formed

  8. Pour the remaining Jun tea into glass bottles, seal tightly and allow to second ferment for 2 – 3 days and then transfer to the fridge. Your Jun tea is now ready to drink.
