Fellow fermenters, I wanted to create a thread where we could share our knowledge to brew up a list of acceptable ingredients used to make Kombucha. Other than green and black tea, what teas/herbs have you used; what were the results?
Apart from the sworn upon green and black teas, I have personally brewed Kombucha using organic white tea. It resulted in a light gold colored tea with hints of pear and apple cider. My SCOBY remained healthy and apparently unharmed.
If a controversial ingredient is listed and in need of further discussion/clarification, please direct its attention to a separate thread.
