Yummy Orange Ginger Kombucha Recipe
We like to add some fresh ginger to many of our kombucha recipes. Ginger and kombucha go together really well. There is something about the sharp spiciness of ginger root that complements the slightly acidic taste of fresh brewed kombucha.
This orange ginger kombucha recipe starts with a freshly brewed batch of kombucha made from either black and green tea, or green tea only. The green tea only version will be a bit lighter in tea flavor. Either one will prove to be refreshing.

Here is the complete recipe to make Orange Ginger Kombucha
Orange Ginger Kombucha
- 1/4 cup orange juice with pulp from fresh chopped oranges
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger peeled and chopped
- Multiply the ingredient quantities by the number of 16 ounce bottles of brewed kombucha you want to make.
- Peel and then process fresh oranges in food processor, or use a knife to chop finely, preserving all the juice. You need the mixture of 1/4 cup pulp and juice for each bottle.
- Peel fresh ginger root and chop in food processor or with a knife. For each bottle, you will need 1 tablespoon of chopped ginger root.
- Add 1/4 cup of orange pulp and juice mixture, plus 1 tablespoon of ginger to each 16 ounce bottle.
- Store the bottles at room temperature for 2 days and then check the fizziness of the brew by loosening the cap to see if it is becoming pressurized by the fermentation.
- Continue to check the bottles each day until there is a lot of pressure and the kombucha is nice and fizzy.
- Move the bottles carefully to the refrigerator to slow the fermentation process.
- When cold, enjoy!
