Kombucha with loose leaf tea

Someone asked me the other day if I added loose leaf tea to my F1...the first fermentation process of Kombucha.  I do!!! If I made a gallon I do 4 black tea bags and then an equivalent to 4 bags of loose leaf tea.  I found these great cotton/muslin spice bags.  I bought them at Lehman's Hardware in Kidron Ohio (4 bags are $3.95 on line).  I live close, so I can shop at the store cheaper then the on line prices.  The bags are great for adding loose leaf tea into your F1 blend.

They are probably cheaper on line at Amazon

As you can see I added the loose leaf tea into the bag and tied it shut.  Then once the blending/steeping is done, I turn the bag inside out over the trash can.  I throw away the loose leaf tea, but I keep the bag!  I just rinse it out.  I can use it over and over again.
