When making tea should the water turn blue? Or did I over heat it?

Tea will turn blue with no heat. You care to share some more detail? Maybe if we all tried the tea, we could read your mind?

Ive never had my tea turn blue.. more the color of magic, or spores;)
I boil til 75-90% of solid mass has sunk.
Hope that helps:)

It's been a few years, I made a batch of tea about every other weekend for a couple months. 15 grams in a large mason jar poured boiling water over it and let it steep for 30 mins. Added green tea bags and sugar. Every time it was just tea looking except once it was a dark blue. Before drinking it lol

I prefer tea, and by my thinking and understanding over the years I think its oxidation of actives that makes the blue.  If you boil your water well before adding the mushrooms you will drive out dissolved gasses.   If you do not, or you let your concoction sit exposed to air for a long time after the brewing it may turn blue. (and if you added your mushrooms as powder in gel caps, the whole thing can turn into jello blue jello overnight https://mycotopia.ne...22-blue-jell-o/ )
