While traveling in Thailand I discovered this wonderful blue sapphire tea called butterfly pea tea. It is not just a pretty color but also very good for ones health and well being. The blue Chai tea turns into a rich purple color when a lemon wedge is added.
Mix with freshly squeezed lemon juice, brown sugar and crushed ice ! Add some mint leaves for extra flavor ! Lovely garden drink on a hot summers day! ☀️
