What tea can I use to make Kombucha?
Kombucha can be made from any tea but most brewers will use a blend of green and black teas. Black teas or more oxidised teas have a stronger flavour which will carry through more into the final product. Teas like English breakfast and Ceylon Tea are great. Green teas or Oolongs have a more subtle flavour but are rich in powerful antioxidants and work great to make a powerful brew.
Kombucha SCOBYs have adapted to the nutrients of black tea but can tolerate and even adapt to using other teas, just avoid any scented of flavoured tea such as cheap early grey (scented with bergamot oil instead of dried peel).
