in 7 to 10 days i will check on them and taste them to see if they are ready. if they are i start the whole process again.
but what about the finish tea?, you ask. well here's what i do:
the tea is transferred to 1/2 gallon jars. they are left on the counter for a couple days for their second brewing. this will give the tea it's fizziness. i will also add fresh or frozen fruit during this brewing.
