Green Tea Kombucha Recipe

If this is your first time making kombucha, then green tea kombucha is the best recipe to start with. Its simple, and tasty.

When you are making homemade kombucha, you can use any type of tea you have. Traditionally black tea is used for kombucha, but green tea kombucha is packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants.

Depending upon the flavor of the tea you choose, your kombucha will take some of its flavors. So, make sure to pay attention to floral notes and the flavor of the tea.

Homemade green tea kombucha is mild in flavor and it’s not very sharp in taste. What’s best with kombucha is that you can add as many herbs and flavors as you want with green tea as you like.

Unlike black tea kombucha, the green tea version is less sparkling because it contains fewer components.

What Green Tea Flavors Should You Use for Kombucha?
