What Is Butterfly Pea Flower Tea?

Used for centuries in Southeast Asia as a refreshing herbal beverage (as well as a plant-based food and clothing dye), Butterfly Pea Flower tea is starting to hit American shelves — and people just can’t get enough!

Made from dried Butterfly Pea Flowers from the Clitoria ternatea plant, the reason Butterfly Pea Flower tea is making such a splash is because it has some very mesmerizing qualities. Once water is added to the tea, the deep cobalt blue liquid changes color when an acid such as lemon or lime juice is added.

Squeeze in some lemon or add in a bit of citrus juice, and the blue changes to purple. Its “mood ring-like” qualities have made Butterfly Pea Flower Tea a hit with anyone who enjoys a little whimsy in their life.

Health Benefits of the Butterfly Pea Flower

The butterfly pea flower makes for quite an interesting cup of tea.  As you drop a few flowers into your mug and add some boiling water, the steep releases a vivid deep blue hue that is beautiful to watch.  The infusion creates an aroma similar to green tea but more woody and earthy to the palate.  Add some fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice and the blue shade turns violet.  It’s impossible not to stare down at your cup as the colors are too pretty to ignore. And this peculiar little flower is loaded with healthy benefits, making it highly popular among tea enthusiasts.
