Pea Tea Latte With Boba

This pea tea latte with boba is sure to satisfy you with both its flavor and its beauty. The tea is light and refreshing, while the boba is sweet and chewy. Pea tea is made with butterfly pea flower leaves, which hold a gorgeous blue hue. For a fun science project, squeeze in some lemon juice and watch the tea turn from beautiful blue to vibrant purple. Add some ice and enjoy the flavor of lemon iced tea. If you love your lattes, slowly pour in half-and-half over the back of a spoon to form swirls in the tea. It’s like having the ocean in a cup! The blue color is dark upon brewing the tea, so add ice to your glass for a brighter hue. If you want a touch of sweetness, try adding in some condensed milk!
