Butterfly Pea Flowers

New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 212°F
  • Timer 5-7 Min

The Butterfly pea flower is native to southeast Asia and makes for a beautiful, purplish blue cup when brewed on its own. Traditionally concocted with lemongrass, this flower can be added a pinch at a time to any cup of tea to create a unique tea with a unique color.

The flowers have a high content of anthocyanin, a beneficial antioxidant, and have a nootropic effect that may trigger vivid dreams, enhanced memory, and brain function. In Thailand, the flowers have been used for centuries for hair and scalp health in ancient types of shampoo.

Nowadays, the flowers are very popular in tea and herbal blends because they easily infuse their vivid blue pigment. The blue infusion color can change before your eyes to purple and fuchsia with the addition of lemon, lime, or other ingredients that change the pH of the infusion. Many new cocktail recipes and cool, color-changing herbal teas are being created using this flower.

This does not have much taste, but it is very fun for adding color to tea blends or other drinks. This is a great ingredient to keep ok hand if you like mixing colorful drinks. It makes an amazing deep blue when steeped alone, and when mixed with other ingredients (especially lemon) it changes colors to amazing purples and pinks. Very photogenic.

I love butterfly pea flowers! The tea does not have a lot of flavor, definitely not flowery- more earthy notes. The tea is a beautiful color. I have come to make it with either lavender flowers or mint leaves. Then I mix it with lemonade and have a gorgeous purple drink. Instead of an Arnold Palmer, I call it lavender Love.
