NEED TO KNOW:
Instead of individual spices, try Chamela Giri Winter Chai Blend. She sources the purest and most organic spices and hand blends them. They are amazing! Add one teaspoon 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.
This refreshing soda will give your body a big boost of over 30 billion LIVE probiotics, magnesium, B vitamins, folate, vitamin K, electrolytes and enzymes.
