It may seem strange at first to drink a blue beverage, unless you’ve gotten used to blue energy drinks too. The Blue Butterfly Pea Tea is aptly named, as it’s really blue.
This is an herbal tea, and the beverage is actually made from the flowers of the Clitoria ternatea plant. This is native to South East Asia, and it’s also called cordofan pea, blue pea, and aparajitha.
The flowers have long been used for tea, and they’re also good for cooking. The blue color is so striking that the flowers have also been used for dye.
Modern scientists have confirmed that there are good reasons why Blue Butterfly Pea Tea has been regarded as medicinal herbal tea for centuries. It’s full of antioxidants and other components that boost the immune system.
Who is it for?
With its mint flavor, Blue Butterfly Pea Tea is actually good for just about everyone. Who doesn’t enjoy a minty drink every now and then? It’s also a nice starter tea for kids, as the mint and the blue color can be quite intriguing.
Drink this when you’re feeling down, and to help with digestion. It’s also a nice supplementary drink if you’re having issues with your scalp or skin.
Start by boiling your filtered water first. You may want to boil more water than you’d use for your tea, because you can use the extra boiling water to first warm up the tea pot. Discard the boiling water you use to warm up the tea pot, and now your teapot won’t cool down as quickly.
Put a teaspoon of your Blue Butterfly Pea Tea into the teapot, and then pour in the hot water. Let it steep for at least 5 minutes. The tea won’t get bitter even if you steep for a longer time.
You can also add some lemon slices, and this will turn the blue color purple. Or you can add some honey, and it’s great to drink before a meal.
