A friend just gave me his kombucha as a present because I buy it in stores a lot and thought making it on my own would save me money. I made the accident of putting a couple tea bags of blueberry tea in the batch, which I heard can be bad for the scoby. Anyway, I took some pictures. I thought it was mold at first, but I think it is just a cloudy color, and it has brown strains coming off the bottom which I read was healthy. I appreciate your thoughts, like I said I'm new at this!

Your images are out of focus and the busy background makes it impossible to tell whether the many dark splotches I see are mold or not.
