Bleu Iced Tea Spritzer

Jump to recipe

The butterfly pea flowers in our BLEU teas are naturally blue and ph-sensitive, coloring each of our BLEU teas into a vivid blue, aqua or pink-purple. These flowers are affected by the acidity level in the tea ingredients, such as hibiscus, or anything you add to the tea, such as a squeeze of tart lemon. Follow the instructions below and watch your tea change color in front of your eyes! Learn more about butterfly pea flowers.
