The Star Bull Kombucha

Taurus Season is April 20-May 20, and this Earth sign loves Mother Nature. My own sun sign, of course, I’m going to share the grounded and earthy flavor of The Star Bull Kombucha. Enjoy the unique flavor of this recipe from my heart on behalf of the most reliable and loyal signs. Uncorking and sipping outdoors, barefoot, is preferred????

It might be a little different than other kombuchas ❤

Raspberry is a star of The Star Bull Kombucha, with complements of other essential Earth flavors like wheatgrass, juniper berries, fresh ginger, and lemongrass. Matcha tea powder gives an energy and down-to-earth caffeine kick! I usually purchase these ingredients at Wisconsin co-ops like Basics in Janesville and the Viroqua Food co-op. With each sip, your tastebuds will be taken on the journey of Zeus’ creation of the Taurus constellation ????

  • Wheatgrass – fresh stalks, juice, or powdered (½ tbsp.)
  • Juniper berry – dried and crushed to release the magic (one or two berries)
  • Matcha tea – dried powder (1 tsp.)
  • Ginger – fresh, powdered, or crystallized (small chunk, about ½ tbsp.)
  • Raspberry – 1 tbsp., frozen and thawed
  • Lemongrass – optional – dried or fresh

More on Taurus

According to Greek mythology, Zeus disguised himself as a beautiful white bull to seduce Europa. While she was petting him, he whisked her off to the island of Crete and romantically and sexually ravished her (*), producing three sons, one being Minos. Minos became a King and Zeus was happy enough with the results. Therefore, he produced the Taurus constellation in the night sky! ????????

*In rose-colored glasses, this was consensual for Europa.

Would you like to look for the Taurus constellation in the night sky? I use Orion’s Belt as a guide and then seek out the bright red star Aldebaran, which represents the Bull’s fiery eye.

Orion and Taurus are partners, visible during the fall through spring in the Northern Hemisphere. 

More on wheatgrass

This recipe calls for fresh wheatgrass, which can be purchased at any natural food store, as mentioned above. Just give the grass a fresh rinse, and cut it with clean scissors.

Wheatgrass is also a rewarding and easy grass to grow indoors any time of year. Sprinkle seeds in a well-draining shallow pot with potting soil, and you will have wheatgrass for two+ cuttings (mine usually go through three before I start over). Seeing fresh grass growing indoors is a treat any time of year.

Make your own protein-packed smoothies at home by blending the fresh wheatgrass cuttings, yogurt, spinach or kale, and your favorite frozen fruit. So healthier, quicker, and wayyyy cheaper to make at home ????

Thawed blackberries, dried juniper berries, and shaved palo santo wood sit in jars on a Ouija board cloth.

Black Forest Kombucha

Are you ready to try something fun and maybe a little experimental? Are you ready to catch some relaxing vibes from your kombucha in a unique fashion?

Enjoy the juiciness of blackberries as they take over a flavor, with earthy and experimental additions of juniper and palo santo in this unique kombucha.

Visit your favorite metaphysical store and purchase Palo Santo wood, which can traditionally be found by incense. Before you burn the wood, take a carrot peeler to gather a few tiny slivers into a jar. Trust me -you’ll notice the woody taste, which leaves a nice mellow if you are open to it ????

Blackberries are a quality standby to have as a kitchen staple in your freezer. Packed full of vitamins C, E, K, and Calcium, I always leave plenty out for me to snack on and add to a smoothie.

Juniper berries will give kombucha a gin-like taste, so just two will do. Top off this flavor with a slice of Palo Santo Wood, and you’ll be off in a flavor wonderland.

  • Blackberry – Thawed, frozen (1-2 tbsp)
  • Juniper Berry – Two dried berries, crushed to release magic (2 berries)
  • Palo Santo Wood – One sliver (optional – can substitute fresh or dried mint)

More about Palo Santo Wood

People have burned Palo Santo for ages to rid a space of negative energy. When purchasing this special wood, respect the people, traditions, and the Earth by ensuring it is ethically sourced and sustainable.  You can also make tea with Palo Santo wood. Again, this lends a strong calming effect. ☽ enjoy when you have no responsibilities ☾
