To make it with loose leaf tea (tea bags have plastic in them) I use 1 tablespoon tea and 4 tablespoons sugar for every litre/quart of boiling water, then I just leave it to cool, and once it's at room temperature I strain it and add it to the scoby and starter tea.
I make continuous brew, which gives us kombucha on tap whenever we want! It makes the process quicker and easier.

I am curious, which part of the tea bags have the plastic in them? I am under the impression (our tea bags) only have this type of foil on the outside and than about 20 tea bags are contained inside the foil.
are you suggesting the tea bag mesh itself has plastic?
super curious as this would change my tea buying habits!!!
thanks kate :D
Something to add to the kombucha making, is we save our used tea bags and put these into our sugar/tea water. ( gives the used tea bags a second life)
