Sourdoughs and SCOBYs

Meyer Lemons

photo1 (1)A trio of Meyer Lemons about to donate some juice to my Rooibos Kombucha.  They say that the kombucha SCOBY really only works on a true tea (Camellia sinensis.) My SCOBY has been so happy lately that I thought I would give it a try on rooibos, which is technically a tisane, or infusion, made from the South African Red Bush.  It is not a tea and my first batch fooled my SCOBY.  The second batch did not really work so well.  Not much fermentation to speak of.
