What type of tea do I need to make kombucha?
Plain black tea will give the best results, start with English Breakfast, Ceylon or Darjeeling. If you want to try some other options Oolong tea will also work and give a more fruity flavour. Green tea can be used but will produce a weaker ferment. To help with this add 500 mL of starter culture and two scoby’s.
We recommend completing at least 4 good batches to get a good strong culture before experimenting with teas.
