Butterfly pea flower is an ancient herbal plant that is very high in antioxidants. In Ayurvedic medicine it is highly renowned for its medicinal properties and has been used for centuries in Asia to improve memory, treat depression and reduce stress.
It also has been suggested to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects, and have properties that promote skin, eye and hair health.
Butterfly pea flower is traditionally served as a tea with honey and lemon over ice. It has a vivid blue colour that magically transforms into a rich purple when you add lemon. Our premium grade butterfly pea flowers are completely caffeine-free and due to their mild flavour they’re perfect to use as a natural blue colourant.
Butterfly pea tea is naturally blue and made by collecting butterfly pea flowers, also known as Asian Pigeonwing, in bloom during the early morning hours which are then immediately sun dried. No chemicals are used in the process nor while growing the flowers, so you can be sure to receive a 100% natural ingredient.
Dried butterfly pea flowers can be used for tea or for cooking, such as making blue rice. It’s a natural blue food dye.
Bartenders from all over the world are using our butterfly pea flowers in their cocktails, not only to make them uniquely blue but for another special effect.
The butterfly blue pea tea can be turned completely pink just by adding a few drop of lemon or lime juice to it, or anything acid that changes the PH value of your drink. This way you can offer your guests, friends and family an exotic color-changing tea, cocktail or mocktail which changes from blue to pink right in front of their eyes.
Each Butterfly Pea Tea comes in a beautiful, handmade wooden box and contains 30 grams/1.05 ounces of our finest dried butterfly pea flowers. That’s several hundred hand-collected flowers which make up to 50 cups of tea.
