A unique and very beautiful tea blend as the butterfly pea flowers turn the heated water into a vibrant blue color and if lemon or orange slices are added it goes from blue to a light pink, to a deep violet depending on how much butterfly pea flowers are added.
The Butterfly Pea Flower tea alone is a slightly earthy flavor and does very well if added fruit and/or honey is added.
My custom tea blend is a mixture of butterfly pea flowers, organic peppermint, rosehips and slices of fresh lemon turning it into a beautiful, tasty and very healthy tea blend.
Other uses for this fun herb is making colored and flavored ice cubes which can really jazz up other drinks and/or cocktails!! Kids would love it in their water, could be a fun and easy way to get extra water intake for your little ones.
This tea has many health benefits as well....it is antioxidant, chock full of vitamin C, and the flavonoid quercetin which is known to increase blood flow to the capillaries of the eyes which can bring relief from blurry and or tired eyes.
