Butterfly Pea Flower Tea

What is butterfly pea flower tea?

Butterfly pea flower tea is an herbal drink made from steeping dried butterfly pea flowers in water. It's caffeine-free.

Butterfly pea flowers are deep blue in color.

The color goes from blue to purple when the pH level changes. Adding something acidic like lemon juice changes the color. It’s like magic!

What does it taste like?

It tastes earthy and woody.    It’s definitely pretty to look at but it tastes bleh. I never drink it on its own.

How can I make it taste better?

Add lemonade!  Lemon and sugar is a great way to change the color of the tea and make it taste great.

Cold brew butterfly pea flower tea by putting cold water and butterfly pea flowers in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Add lemon or lemonade to change the color from blue to purple!
