Watch this magical brew change colour before your eyes!  Made of green tea & raspberries, it's packed with antioxidants! 💚

So, what was the inspiration for this blend?

The most common phrase we hear when taking people through our tea wall is "I don't like green tea". We needed this madness to stop, so we decided to make a green tea that even those who HATE green tea will like! 😁

🔬 Colour Changing Tea - The Science! 🔬

If you’re a regular frequenter of Bird & Blend then you’ll know all about our fan favourite ingredient, the Butterfly Blue Pea Flower. 

When you brew up a tea containing this magical flower, you’ll find that it goes the most divine shade of blue! If you’re new around here then stick around, my young grasshopper, we’re about to introduce you to some real tea magic! 

Colour Changing Tea

What is the Butterfly Blue Pea Flower? 

This flower is the only thing in nature that can colour things such a vibrant blue. It is a completely natural colourant basically! It has been used for hundreds of years but has become an increasingly popular ingredient, being used in teas, gins & cocktails in recent years, to add a little magic! It goes by many different names including Asian pigeonwings, bluebellvine, blue pea, cordofan pea & Darwin pea.

The flower originates from South East Asia and as well as being used in drinks, it’s also used to colour foods such as a Malaysian sticky rice dish is known as Nasi Kerabu. This is due to it’s vibrant, striking colour and its colour is exactly what makes it so special!

Why does it change colour?! 

Turning your drinks (or sticky rice!) blue isn't even the best part... The reason for this humble little flower’s recent stint in the spotlight is due to its magical colour changing powers!

Yep, you heard, this is a tea that can change colour right before your very eyes! If you add a drop or two of lemon juice then the liquid will transition into a fantastic pink!

We'd love to say it's magic, but for those scientists out there, it's due to the change in pH level once the acid is added! Think natures litmus paper!

So, which of our blends have this in?

You'll find this fabulous flower in:

💖 Blue Raspberry

💖 Lemon & Raspberry

💖 Mermaid Mist

💖 Rainbow Chai

💖 A Very Thirsty Caterpillar

So, there you have it! 

Next time you're in store, why not ask for a demo or order a Unicorn Fizz iced tea & watch the magic happen for yourself! 😁
