Tips
Store in refrigerator to minimize excessive carbonation.
Leave on counter for a few days before refrigerating if you want more carbonation.
A good ratio of Tea to fruit is 80/20.
Make sure all your items are cleaned with a natural soap and dried so you have less chance of mold or bad bacteria.
Use wood or glass utensils. Avoid metal as much as possible.
Use your Young Living Vitality essential oils to flavor it.
