My friend, colleague and neighbor, Erin Phillips wrote this for Countryside Mag. She brought me over a bottle of fruit flavored Kombucha. So delicious: fizzy/healthy, not too sweet and really quenched my thirst. And you’ll get a kick out of this: my scoby/mother that you need to start making Kombucha died on me. Suffocated actually. It smelled funny and I asked Erin what was wrong. “You didn’t let it breathe, and it died”, she said. Oooh, what a smell. Not nice.
