White frost isn't bad mold. Congratulations on experiencing tea drunkedness.

Well, this is a sterile mycelium. Nearly every mycelium ist white, the difference appears with fructification - when the sporangiophores develops.

I thought gold fungus isn't bad mold,

white frost might not be hazardous to body, but to say it's just safe and good mold seems to....somewhat forgiving :D

If I had a cake with some white forst, I would brush it off but I wouldn't throw the tea out.

But I'm not saying that the original post is just white frost, I don't know about that particular example.
