Blue Tea?

I recently came across this magical looking blue tea. ‘Butterfly Pea Tea‘ has a naturally blue tint and is said to have a lot of health benefits. The plants come from South East Asia where you can find them in many traditional recipes. The taste is very neutral and I would describe it as earthy or woody. Depending on the pH, the tea changes its color. If you add lemon it will turn bright purple, if you add hibiskus it will turn bright pink!
