Default Jasmine green

I finished a successful black tea batch using
3quarts water
1cup sugar and
5 tea bags
Now I've got a new brew going with
3quarts water
1cup sugar
2 black tea bags
4 jasmine green tea bags

My questions are
1 will jasmine green ruin the brew?
2 am I supposed to use at least 50% black tea?

I have tasted the second batch and it seems to be moving along nicely. How would I know if I use a tea that is unkombuchable? Would it just sit till it molds?

I'll let you guys know.
I bottled it today with 1/2 tsp sugar in each 12 oz bottle.
I'll try one in three days and post back.

Well it tasted great going in but as far as I can tell the jasmine flavor was lost during conditioning and fermentation.
I might try adding sweet jasmine tea at bottling instead of sugar to bring out some flavor.
Also I'm still trying to get the carbonation right. I can't seem to get any good fizz.
