a kid friendly kombucha sangria

We love the kombucha sangria but don't need the wine and the brandy on a daily bases. Kombucha has a low level of alcohol in it anyway (0.5%).
We now are making a kid friendly kombucha sangria that is just as tasty. 


3 cups boiling water
2 black tea bags
1 medium cinnamon stick (or 2 small sticks)
3 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup honey, preferably local and raw
1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed)
3-4 cups kombucha
1 orange (sliced into rounds)
1 lime (sliced into rounds)
1 lemon (sliced into rounds)
1 apple (cored and sliced)
1 cup frozen mixed berries (no sugar added)


Place tea bags and cinnamon sticks in a medium bowl. Pour boiling water over them and steep for about 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags.
In a large pitcher, pour the tea, honey, pomegranate juice, and orange juice. Stir to combine.
If you are serving this the same day, add the fruit and 3-4 cups of kombucha to a large pitcher. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
We store it in quart mason jars, so we divided the fruit into 4 jars with 1 cup of kombucha per jar. We then pour the tea and juice mixture over the fruit and kombucha in the jars. If you plan to store this more than a 3-4 days use pasteurized honey or sugar. Raw honey has its own bacteria and often competes with the probiotic bacteria of the kombucha.
