blue tea

Sis and gis and I were at a coffee shop the other day and gis ordered a herbal tea that was blue. We examined the tea bag, it was filled with all sorts of different flower petals, the blue colour was quite overwhelming.

Turns out, it’s a herbal tea made from butterfly pea flower from Thailand. It tasted like mild flower herbal tea, very pleasant and soothing. It’s also available at amazon.

Sis’ reaction when the tea was served was alarm and skeptism. There are so few naturally blue foods around that many of us associate blue with food that’s gone bad. Odd. I can think of blueberries, blue corn, blue cheese. True, there are fewer blue flower and plants too. Doesn’t mean blue food is bad.
