Ultra Violet is an herbal tea crafted from lemon, lemon verbena and lemongrass in a playful jumble with apple, hibiscus and raspberry. Butterfly pea flower joins the fun, turning this herbal tea a deep and rich violet when steeped. Ultra Violet is refreshingly zesty, and stunning whether sipped hot or cold. close up of ultra violet collins cocktail  Fruity and Fabulous!
