Velma - Day 1

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.
