Love Potion Number 9, The Searchers
David’s Tea Magic Potion tea isn’t a love potion, but you might just love it! Or your kids or grandkids will.
This blue raspberry infusion contains currants, apples, rosehips, butterfly pea flowers, raspberries, natural flavouring (kiwi, blackberry, bilberry), blackberries, and extract. Butterfly pea flowers are a Southeast Asian flower that naturally turn tea blue. After steeping for 5 minutes, as recommended, this tea had a light berry aroma and a sweet, slightly tart raspberry/blackberry flavour. I really liked it!
The squirrels, however, didn’t like me taking photos in the yard and they rained all kinds of curses down on me! 🙂
So why is it called “Magic Potion”?
This tea changes colour! Just add a few drops of lemon juice and the colour changes from indigo to violet. I also found the tartness from the additional lemon enhanced the flavour of the berries, making it sweeter.David’s tea suggests it as “a refreshing caffeine-free iced tea or a berry-packed nightcap”. They also call it “a mood ring in your mug”.
There’s no mistaking what kind of potion I need. Caffeine – for alertness and rejuvenation.
