AZORES TEA BLUE ISLAND SENSATION
Blue Island Sensation is a declaration of love to the Azores island group in the Atlantic with nuances of caramel and blossoms. For this velvety-smooth blue tea creation the finest green tea from the first leaf of the tea plant has been used. It is refined with the blue blossoms of the butterfly pea flower.
The blue colour of the infusion is due to the flowers of the butterfly pea. As these are exclusively 100% natural ingredients, the blue tones may vary depending on the infusion.
Little experiment: add a few drops of lemon juice to the tea and see what happens!
Flavour intensity: Gentle and soft
