A Chameleon Tea? - Blue Mallow Tea - turn it pink!

Tea Question

Does Blue Mallow Tea actually turn pink when citrus is added to it?

Yes, to my knowledge, the citrus reacts with the blue mallow and you get a pink tea.

Specifically, I have been told you use lemon juice - I have not heard of using orange juice or any other type of citrus, like lime etc, to have the blue mallow tea turn pink.

Hope this helps, good luck
