Blue Tea India, an online-only brand, is making blue, purple, and red tea from flowers. The folks behind the brand wanted to provide a prettier, healthier, and more palatable alternative to green tea, and well, it looks like they are succeeding.
The fact that these cups of tea are as instagrammable as they are good for you, makes us want to give these a chance. Because they are flower infusions, they have a slightly sweet aftertaste that’s perfect to wash down mini sandwiches at a high tea, or as a mid-meal substitute to an overly sugary glass of iced tea from the nearest coffee shop. Add to this the purple tea’s ability to aid weight loss and the blue tea being rich in antioxidants, and we have a pretty compelling reason to order an assorted box. The premium gift pack with four assorted teas is priced at INR 699 and is good for making 100 cups.
We also learned that this tea is now being called culinary tea because chefs are using it to make blue noodles. Cool, right?
