Kombucha - aka Orange Crush!

I've been making standard kombucha the past couple of months using black Chai tea--following Sally Fallon's recipe which calls for black tea. A friend of mine, however, recommended that once I've been brewing kombucha with black tea for a while to try using Alvita's Chinese Green Tea (Tangerine) or (Orange). She swears these teas taste like orange crush once kombucha-ed! Her daughters now call dibs on the "orange tea," necessitating my friend's constant production of it on a routinely bi-weekly basis!

So for anyone brave enough to try it, give it a shot, and let me know what you think. I'm brewing a batch myself this week, and it should be ready in a couple days. I can't wait to try it!
