[NYC - Chinatown] Vivi Bubble Tea - Color Changing Blue Galaxy Special Tea

Have you seen Vivi's color changing Blue Galaxy bubble tea yet?

I got this beautiful drink at the Vivi's location in Chinatown, but it is available at various locations throughout the city.

The Galaxy Tea is caffeine free and is made with a combination of lime juice and butterfly pea tea.

Butterfly pea tea is naturally that deep blue color, which comes from the leaves of the plant. Then, when an acid, like the lime juice, comes into contact with it, it turns purple.

When you first get it, it's blue at the top and then a citrus color at the bottom (with some added jellies).

Then, as the blue portion begins to settle and diffuse throughout the drink, the color begins changing and there's a purple layer.

After you mix the drink fully by either patience or shaking it (recommended), your drink will be this beautiful shade of purple thanks to food science.

The flavor is sweet, but slightly citrus-y thanks to the lime juice. I do recommend adding something like a jelly or bubbles to it for a little texture since the Blue Galaxy tea is only available in large size ($4.75).

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
