today i dragged a co-worker to Casa de luz for lunch, which was.. a bit too much driving (austin -> round rock -> austin -> round rock -> austin), but it was worth it to show him daily juice (i luv!) and casa de luz (which i don't like. but all my friends seem too.)
i also got a chance to workshop with the woman who provides kombucha to daily juice.
so right now, i'm experimenting with making 2 kombucha batches: one with twig tea (which daily juice sells at like 3 bucks for 2 ounces.. also the tea itself is what casa de luz serves) and one with green tea (organic jasmine and matcha).
for those who don't know kombucha.. here's wikipedia's entry
, which includes the trivia: "Chef Josef Desimone of Google
makes Kombucha for Google employees. Almost 100 glasses of Kombucha are served every day at Google cafeterias."
Anyways, all I know is that it makes me have more energy and sleep like a log. Though too much aggravates my heartburn.
The woman who taught me how to make it.. she's quite a character; steoreotypical, south austin resident. makes me smile.
so.. in case any of you want some kombucha cultures, I sure have them. and they look nice and plump and healthy.
