Come learn how to make your own Kombucha!
This workshop will take place at Browns Independent Grocer in Stittsville, on the second floor - the party room ( 1251 Stittsville Main St ). This is a family day weekend, so we hope you will take this opportunity to learn a new skill that contributes to family health & well-being.
We will begin the workshop with traditional ceremonial tea tasting to understand complexity of high quality ingredients that make up a successful brew like Artizen Kombucha! Then together we will make kombucha step by step, and at the end of the day you will go home with your first batch of kombucha. You will have time to ask us questions!
At the workshop you will get a 1 litre mason jar, starter liquid, scoby, tea and sugar for your first batch. You will also have an option to purchase additional bottles or teas on site.
This is a great informative workshop, hosted by professional kombucha brewers! Spaces are always limited.
