What is Blue Butterfly Pea Tea?

Blue butterfly peaflower tea (Clitoria Ternatea) originated from South East Asia. The blue actually comes from the blue pea flower, the same blue plant pigment found in blueberries, cabbage, blackberries etc. This beautiful vivid blue tea magically transforms its colour to purple if a drop of lemon juice is added to the drink! 

Why does butterfly pea tea change color?

The science behind this magic sorcery comes from the "anthocyanins" within the butterfly pea flower. The stability of its colour is dependent on the pH so if you add something acidic (lowering the pH of the tea), it will change colour to a violet purple! This is a fun way to show the kids the difference between acidic and alkaline substances, like a litmus test! Or you can wow your friends at the next party gathering!

What can change the colour of blue pea flower?

You can use anything acidic like lemon or lime juice (just 1 drop is enough and give it a swirl) to turn the blue butterfly pea tea into a purple drink! 

What is butterfly pea tea good for?

In Asia, it is often used for health reasons and also a welcome drink in Thailand.  However in western countries, it is often used as a natural blue food dye or food colouring. You may have seen these blue and purple drinks, lattes and smoothie bowls on Instagram!

What does butterfly pea tea taste like?

Butterfly pea tea on its own doesn't really taste like anything. If we had to give it a taste, we would be leaning towards earthy and grassy. This is why we added organic Australian lemon myrtle and ginger to enhance its taste. Our Crystal blue tea makes a refreshing iced or warm tea with a fresh citrus & lemon tones. 

Does blue pea tea contain caffeine?

Although butterfly pea is called a tea, it isn't technically a tea like green tea or black tea which is derived from a plant called Camellia Sinensis. It's actually a "herbal infusion" or a "tisane" which the same can be said about mint tea or chamomile tea. This also means butterfly pea is caffeine free and can be consumed any time of day.

When should I drink butterfly pea flower tea?

As it is a herbal tea with no caffeine, you can drink it any time of day without the fear of being up all night! Many people like to drink this blue pea tea after a session of yoga, meditation, massage and spa as it helps with improving circulation to the body. It helps to soothe and relax your mind and body.  

Butterfly Pea Flower Tea Benefits

Blue butterfly pea is often called the "beauty" tea and for good reason! It contains a high concentration of anthocyanin - a compound known to increase blood circulation in the head and help to nourish the scalp. It also helps in strengthening the hair follicles from within. In South East Asia, some use blue pea flower extract in hair products to help nourish lustrous strong hair. It is often applied to the scalp to help stimulate growth. Blue pea tea also contains flavonoids which can also help promote collagen production and maintain skin elasticity.

How to make butterfly pea tea

This should result in a nice deep blue hue. For lighter blue, add less flowers or add more flowers for a darker blue. 

Step 1: Add 1-2 teaspoons of Crystal butterfly pea tea into a 250ml cup making sure there are roughly 3-4 butterfly pea flowers in there. 

Step 2: Let it steep in 100°C water for approx 5-8 minutes. 

Step 3: Strain the tea leaves & enjoy with some honey (optional). If you want to change the colour to purple, add a few drops of lemon juice.
