Butterfly Blue Magic Tea

This tea has a calming effect. It is a memory enhancer and antidepressant. It is effective when you are tired, anxious, or depressed and need to focus. If taken routinely, it can prevent such problems. The colors created of this tea are absolutely mesmerizing. After a long day of work, when you sit back and have a bright blue tea in your hand, which is slowly changing into hues of purple. It is not magic or anything supernatural changing the colors, but quite a scientific property(acid makes blue change into purple) but the magic is in the moments, it's in the enjoyment.
