Spring – Blue ocean coconut tea
This is a magical drink!
Inspite the magical colors, this drink’s allure is based on pure science. But who said science can’t be fun?
Truly, the magical aesthetic in this recipe comes from a little blue flower native to Southeast Asia named butterfly pea. Tea made from these flowers is a gorgeous sapphire blue color. It contains a high concentration of a blue-violet pigment called anthocyanin. However, the color of this pigment relies on the acidity of its environment. When the pH of the blue tea is changed, -could be by the addition of any citrus or any acidic fruit-, it turns into a vibrant magenta color. In other words, on one hand, it starts out blue. In addition with an acidic ingredient it slowly changes to purple and then magenta, as the environment gets more acidic. I told you science is fun! And we have the perfect recipe for you to prepare this at home!
