I started my Scoby for kombacha tea from a bottle of raw tea purchased at a grocery store. Put the lid back on the bottle (fairly loosly) and set aside. It was behind the coffee maker so I hadn't noticed it and it never ended up in the recycling. I found it today while cleaning the counter. It had what looked like a tiny jellyfish covering the bottom. Since I saw no evidence of mold I've decided to grow this little jellyfish and see if I can end up with another scoby. I shall name her Velma
While the tea is brewing I put her in an espresso cup with a bit of liquid from my last scoby start.
This is her first picture.
The little specks are sediment from the liquid I added.
