A fermented tea.

1 Ounce Mavi bark
1 Ounce Ginger -- fresh
1 Cinnamon stick
1 1/2 Cups Water
12 Cups Water
2 1/2 Cups Sugar
2 1/2 Cups Brown sugar
2 c Mavi (previously made)

Place the first 4 ingredients in a very large pot and boil for aprox. 5 minutes. Remove from heat, strain and cool completely. Place the next 3 ingredients in a very large pot and mix well. Add the strained liquid and the 2 cups of mavi. Take a ladle and begin to mix the liquid well until it has foam on the top. Pour the mavi into quart size bottles only 3/4 full and cover with cloth.

NOTE - DO NOT COVER WITH TIGHT LID. Place the bottles in a warm place - the sun is fine - and allow to ferment for about 3 or 4 days. Then refrigerate and drink cold. The colder the better..!!
