I feel the same. All the tea I didn't like used to go to iced tea, (for some reason, even if it sucks, it's tolerable if it's cold lol) but now it will be KOMBUCHA!! I've also noticed that as my tea quality goes up, the quantity I make goes down, but using the gongfu method, you can still get a quite a bit of tea from the leaves, just not all at once.
I feel really guilty about chucking leaves that I haven't used completely, heck, I wish there was something to do with leaves that were completely spent!
Anyway, here's that website if anyone is interested -

I started my first batch last week in an attempt to grow a scoby. There is definitely some... activity... happening in the jar lol
If I stop posting, you know what happened...
I've been buying the GT's Kombucha lately from the health food store until my batch is ready, and I REALLY like it. Very interesting flavor.
