Lemon Lily Organic Butterfly Pea Flower Tea (40g)
Butterfly pea flower tea, also known as blue tea, is a herbal tea made from the flowers of the Clitoria ternatea plant. It is named after the unique shape of its flowers, which resemble a butterfly. This tea has gained popularity in various parts of the world due to its vibrant blue color and potential health benefits.
When steeped in hot water, the flowers release their vibrant blue hue, resulting in a visually stunning tea. When lemon juice or any acidic substance is added, the blue tea turns into a beautiful shade of purple due to the reaction between the anthocyanins and the acidity.
In addition to its captivating appearance, butterfly pea flower tea is believed to offer several potential health benefits. It is considered rich in antioxidants, which help protect the body against harmful free radicals. Some studies suggest that butterfly pea flower tea may have anti-inflammatory properties and could contribute to better skin health, improved digestion, and enhanced cognitive function.
Butterfly pea flower tea can be enjoyed both hot and cold. It is often served with a squeeze of lemon or lime to witness the color transformation. The tea is also used as a natural food coloring agent in various culinary creations, such as desserts and rice dishes.
