Make lotus root decorations by briefly blanching lotus root in boiling water for two minutes. Steep tea, add honey and ginger and place lotus root into tea mixture for a couple hours until the color develops. These will have a nice crunch to them and absorb the flavors. Perfect decoration for mixed drinks and various recipes. Lotus root also can be sautéed and incorporated into many recipes.
**You can also dye them blue by using blue butterfly pea powder or any color you like.
