Plain black tea will give the best results, start with;
- English Breakfast
If you want to try some other options;
- Oolong tea will also work and give a fruitier flavour
- Green tea can be used but will produce a weaker ferment.
To help with a weaker ferment add 500 mL of starter culture and two scobys.
We recommend completing at least four good batches to get a good strong culture before experimenting with teas.
