Description: Native to South East Asia where the warm climate favours its growth, the bright blue petals from the flowers of the butterfly pea plant have traditionally been used as an ingredient in herbal teas. The indigo flower imparts its beautiful blue colour when steeped in warm or hot water.
Ingredients: Organic Butterfly Pea Flower.
Health Benefits: Butterfly Pea Flower is rich in antioxidants, supports skin health and contains stress-relieving properties.
Tasting Notes: The flavour is very subtle with a slightly earthy and woody taste (similar to a subdued green tea) with a distinct floral aroma. It's particularly known for its ability to change colour due to the tea's PH balance. With the introduction of an acid like lemon juice, the tea changes from a deep indigo, to a royal purple, to even a bright magenta-pink.
Journey: The Butterfly Pea Flower is revered for its ability to support skin health and deeply relax your mind, body and soul. From summer to fall, the flowers bloom and add soothing splashes of color that both delight and calm the senses. While the tea originally takes a brilliant blue color when steeped in hot water, the unique pH balance of the Butterfly Pea Flower means that the tea changes color from a deep indigo to a royal magenta when introduced to an acid like lemon juice.
