Why does my kombucha smell like rotten eggs?

A sulfur smell in kombucha isn't harmful, but the taste can be very unpleasant. The water source you're using has hydrogen sulfide in the water giving it a strong taste of sulfur. The tea you're using has nitrogen present in the tea leaves, which can cause a sulfur taste in your brew.
