Mixed Tea Blend for Kombucha (Certified Organic)
From Asia, to Africa, to South America, we searched the world to find the best Certified Organic teas for the kombucha home brewer and the commercial brewer alike. We import them directly, blend and package them in-house, and pass the savings along to you. This is our blend of Organic Black, Green, and White teas for Kombucha, and it’s the same mixed tea blend we use in our working brewery everyday.
Our fanning blends are hands-down the best choice for kombucha for a few simple reasons:
1: More nutrition for a healthier scoby: fannings are the small particles of tea used in almost every tea-bag around the world, and when brewed, the surface area of fannings is exponentially more than the surface area of whole leaf tea. This means a much higher nutrient extraction rate, versus whole leaf, and (gram for gram) much more nutrition for your scoby than whole leaf tea.
2: Better flavor: more nutrients for the scoby means more kombucha goodness and better flavor in the end product.
3: Cost: fannings are much less expensive than whole leaf teas, with no loss in quality. While different general types of tea (white, black, green) can produce slightly different flavor profiles in finished kombucha, we’ve found no noticeable difference between expensive whole-leaf teas and fannings. This isn’t pinky-up tea with The Queen – it’s food for your a scoby – and fannings are what your scoby wants!
See product photos for brewing instructions and product usage chart. Disposable tea bags recommended for this product (tea balls and muslin bags not recommended).
Black tea maintains a rich, fragrant flavor profile with a mellow earthy finish.
Green tea is harvested when its antioxidant content is at its peak. A skip away from the savoriness of black tea, towards the vegetal, sweet, and grassy, the leaves are then minimally processed, resulting in tea leaves that are incredibly rich in powerful antioxidant polyphenols (plant chemicals).
White tea is a delicate, crisp white tea known for its neutral, nut-like character. Slightly savory, slightly sweet, slightly grassy — and a tea that produces a beautiful color in finished kombucha.

My son recommended this tea for making kombucha after my sister-in-law gave me a scoby and I had started making kombucha with some tea bags I had around.. This is much better! I’ve been using it for a couple of years, I love it, and I will continue using it.
This is my first time around making Kombucha. I came across this blend and it makes the best booch. I love the flavor and richness.

I love this blend. I purchased it from Amazon after comparing different blends, and Raw Brewing Co. was the superior outlet for kombucha tools and materials for brewing at home. The blend is so easy to use. I just add half a cup of loose tea leaves to my boiled water and sugar and let it sit to room temperature before adding my scoby. It is also a great blend to build flavors off of too. I can’t recommend more! Raw Brewing Co. is my go-to!

I love this and would definitely recommend it! Makes great kombucha. I am overall very satisfied with my purchasing of this product.
This is great, brews up easy, tastes light and refreshing. The first ferment takes a little less time than other teas I’ve tried and tastes better. Love it, and will get it again!
Better than any other tea I’ve ever used for kombucha
I feel like a kombucha master with this product in my kitchen
