CAN I USE HERBAL TEA?

| 0

To thrive your SCOBY will need the tannins, minerals and polyphenols available in the camellia sinensis tea leaves (tea from China). If you have to brew with herbal tea make sure that the herbal tea is oil free because some herbal teas are flavored with oils. Then make every other batch (or every 3-4 batch) with regular tea or  add one black or green tea bag to every brew to help keep your SCOBY in good condition otherwise your SCOBY will deteriorate over time.
