CRYSTAL - BLUE PEA TEA - is beautifully blended with Australian-grown lemon myrtle and ginger, making it a refreshing tonic that you can drink hot or iced!
The vibrant blue hue from this blue pea flower comes from blue pigments similar to blueberries and purple cabbage which are high in antioxidants, which are called Anthocyanins.
How Does Blue Pea Tea Change Colour?
This colour change from blue to purple happens when the pH of the tea is lowered (as a result of the acidic lemon). A fun alternative to the litmus test for the kids and a fun drink to enjoy afterwards!
Perfect for cocktails, relaxing warm teas, smoothies, cakes, popsicles and anything you want to naturally colour blue!
If you add 1 drop of lemon or lime juice into this blue tea it will magically transform into a purple tea!
