How to brew the perfect cup of butterfly pea tea
Bluechai tea can be brewed in various ways, we usually recommend a steeping time of 3-8 minutes depending on the intensity of the blue color you wish to achieve. That being said, it is also possible to do a cold brew with Bluechai.
On the right you’ll see an example of how Bluechai tea looks like after being steeped for 3 minutes.
For cocktails and food coloring we recommend using blue matcha, which is like Bluechai tea, but consists of micro-powdered organic blue tea – this way the blue pigments are released much faster which allows for even better hot/cold breweing and thus can be used directly on alcoholic beverages (or mocktails!) without having to brew a tea first.
