Teas Contained in the Kombucha Tea Blend
Now you’re probably wondering what types of teas are included in this blend!
It is An organic blend of green tea, black tea, white tea, rooibos and yerba mate.
Let’s talk about each type of tea and the benefits that they offer!
White tea is the least processed out of all the tea varieties, which helps in retaining high levels of phytochemicals. It also has a sweeter, more mild flavor than green tea.
White tea can contain up to three times more antioxidants than other tea varieties. According to Dr. Axe white tea could potentially reduce the risks of developing rheumatoid arthritis, some cancers and heart disease.
It is said to help improve hair, skin, teeth and bone health as well as reduce blood pressure and boost the immune system.
Green tea is also loaded with antioxidants and health benefits.
It is said to be excellent for cognitive function, helping you to have a better memory. Green tea could also potentially lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s!
It is said to boost the metabolic rate and to increase fat burning! Sounds good to me, sign me up;)
Like white tea, there have been studies done that suggest that green tea may also lower your risk of various types of cancer.
Black Tea is often overlooked due to the popularity of green tea. But black tea is full of many health benefits as well!
Due to the presence of tannins in black tea it is said to be useful for those suffering from diarrhea and is said to have an anti-inflammatory, relaxing effect on the digestive system.
As with other types of tea, black tea is also suspected to lower the risk of certain types of cancer.
Black tea is also said to lower high cholesterol. It is suggested that those who drink black tea every day are at a lower risk for heart problems such as stroke and heart attacks.
Rooibos tea is native to South Africa and contains many health benefits!
This tea contains 50% more antioxidants than green tea! How amazing is that?!
It is naturally caffeine free and contains minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc. etc.
While all teas are said to increase bone strength and density, Rooibos tea contains additional properties that make it even more effective in strengthening our bones!
According to Dr. Axe, quercetin, the plant pigment found in rooibos, is used to treat many diseases such as: conditions of the heart and blood vessels including ‘hardening of the arteries’ (atherosclerosis), high cholesterol, heart disease, and circulation problems… diabetes, cataracts, hay fever, peptic ulcer, schizophrenia, inflammation, asthma, gout, viral infections, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), preventing cancer, and for treating chronic infections of the prostate.
He says that many doctors report effectively prescribing it in supplement form to treat cancer, as it suppresses malignant tumor growth by stopping the processes involved in cell mutation.
Dr. Axe goes on to state that: In addition, rooibos tea seems to help the immune system produce antibodies necessary to prevent and heal from cancer, allergic reactions and even AIDS.
Yerba Mate Tea:
Yerba Mate is a traditional South American tea.
It’s said to have the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea and provide the joy of chocolate.
Yerba Mate is also full of antioxidants and nutrients. Here are some of the vitamins and minerals that may be contained in a serving of Yerba Mate: vitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B5, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, sulfur and zinc.
It also contains other beneficial phytonutrients such as tannins, trace minerals, chlorophyll, flavonoids, and 15 amino acids.
Yerba Mate helps to boost energy and improve mental focus.
It is also said that Yerba Mate may assist the body in protecting itself from infections caused by bacteria, fungi and parasites.
It is also possible that Yerba Mate might be able to assist diabetics in lowering blood sugar, in strengthening the immune system, and to assist in weight loss.

Thank you for sharing! It’s great to have someone that has experience with making kombucha to be able to learn about the best types of tea to use. I definitely want to try this recipe at home. Are there any different types of teas that are good to use, or is this the pinnacle of perfection? Thank you again for sharing!
I personally don’t use any other tea. I feel that this blend combines the best tea for the best tasting and the healthiest Kombucha! This blend also gives your SCOBY everything that it needs, making a very productive and healthy culture. I know that some teas can make the SCOBY thinner. But, you can make a very healthy, delicious Kombucha using just black tea if you aren’t able to get this blend:)
Have you ever heard that those teas absorb fluoride out of the ground/water from which they are grown? The lady from “Cheeseslave” talks about women having more health issues due to drinking kombucha….b/c of the fluoride content. Just wondering what your thoughts were…..
With most things that we consume the growing conditions can be an issue. The tea blend that this post is about is made up of organic teas, which means that it should have been grown in an organic healthy environment. I personally have never experienced any negative effects from my Kombucha and it is made from this tea blend. Actually we have noted positive and healthy changes, so I feel very confident in this tea.
Also, the Kombucha SCOBY is very sensitive to chemicals, which is why it can’t be made with tap water but needs to be made with good quality filtered water (such as RO) to make a healthy culture. If there were harsh substances in the tea, I would think that it would cause your SCOBY to either die, or to be thin and weak. I only use this tea blend to make my Kombucha and my SCOBY is very thick, healthy and multiplies quickly.
I wouldn think they are not using good filtered water either if they have high fluoride levels.
DO you know if you can use these types of blends with JUN the sister of Kombucha.
I’ve never made JUN, so I can’t say for sure. If you click the links in the post that take you to the website to purchase the tea blend, they might have some info regarding it there.
Are you selling this blend or should I just buy tea bags of each kind?
If you click the links in the post it will take you to where you can buy the teas already blended together! It’s all organic and contains the exact ratio of the different teas to give you the best tasting Kombucha!
I am trying to find link to buy your blend to make Kombutcha
Hi Diane, you can find the tea blend here: http://www.kombuchakamp.com/11370-31-3-35.html
