Good luck - Everything is normal!
Thank you for your reply.
Yesterday while waiting, I dug out the scoby and checked out the coloration part, and it turned out that it is a little pouch with bits of tea leaves in it. I used whole leaf green tea and didn't filter the tea, just poured the tea out. It seems like the scoby is forming a little pouch and trapped all the loose bits of tea leaves in it, like a little tea bag.
What should I do? Should I dig out the little "tea bag" and toss it out? Should I filter my tea before fermenting it? Will the itter "tea bag" go bad and cause problems?
