Butterfly pea is a truly magic plant!
The plant is PH-sensitive and reacts with acidic liquids. When in contact with hot water, the result is a cobalt blue tea drink. If you squeeze in lemon juice, however, the drink turns purple. However, if you add hibiscus petals to the drink, it turns it fuchsia pink. The drink turns from pink back to blue when in contact with baking soda. Just add a gram of soda and the blue colour is back! Using these tips, you can make wonderful meals and drinks, adding a splash of colour to your everyday life!
