NEED TO KNOW:
Instead of individual spices, try Virtue Chai Rooibos – Organic and Caffeine Free. They source the purest and most organic teas that are amazing! Add one tablespoon to your second ferment.
It may take a bit longer than usual to build the CO2 in the second ferment because there is no added sugar from any fruit.
