Also called the campagne of kombuchas, a delicious slightly sour drink thats not only fun to maintain, but also good for your health!
Jun tea is a traditional fermented tea made with green or white tea and honey. Everyone knows about kombucha, but Jun is still relatively rare and unknown. There are some stores that sell Jun cultures online, or you can get one from someone who may gift you a daughter culture. We received our Jun culture from our good friend Mariëlle Janssen. She told us about the process of taking care of a Jun culture and the benefits of the Jun tea. After trying out the tea we were amazed by its flavors. We found it tastes almost champagne-like, but more sour. A new flavor we could not keep a "secret" from you. Let's get started!
Dump in the Jun culture along with 1/2 cup tea from a previous batch or brew. Keep two large jars for swapping the Jun culture every 2 to 3 days, use one and clean the other. The time depends on your taste, it will get more sour every day. Allow the tea to ferment over a period of 2 to 3 days. Then, carefully remove the Jun culture and 1/2 cup jun tea and repeat the same process. Make sure the equipment you're using is made from plastic, stainless steel isn't good for the jun culture. Use a different jar or pitcher for this and clean the used one. Enjoy!
Enjoy your jun tea!
Tip: store the jun culture on a light but slightly cool spot in your kitchen.
