Default kindakombucha

Forgive me if this is out of place,but it has tea in it .
I had an idea yesterday whilst teaching. I forgot about half of a cup of very strong Lao green tea on my desk and when I came back to it it was cold. Now it was VERY bitter,but in a smooth pleasing way which resembled a few superior hops.
The idea is this; I am going to make chicha/tesguino nad had the idea of bittering it with strong green tea.
Is there anything in tea which would inhibit the yeast?
Please,all and any comments welcome.
Cheers,Lee.

nope, in fact many mazers used to use black tea as a nutrient supplement to the honey.
