The newest addition to our line of Medicinal teas; Blue Butterfly Pea Flower (latin name; Clitoria ternatea) is known for its striking luminous indigo color. Blue Butterfly flower produces the flavonol Quercitin as well as the antioxidant Proanthocyanidin.
It is used in both Chinese and Ayurvedic (India) medicine, where it is also considered "the female aphrodisiac tea". The Proanthocyanidin benefits the eyes, retinas, and eyesight. This tea is wonderful when mixed with lemonade or limeade. Acidifying the tea (with lemonade) will change the color from blue to purple. The tea can also be used in foods as an all-natural food coloring. It can be used to prepare dough to make Blue Bread, and added to Cheese Cake to make an Ocean Wave Cheesecake.
Our Blue Butterfly Flower tea is purely Organically grown (no pesticides, no herbicides). Naturally Caffeine Free. 25 grams per package.
Add the Blue Butterfly flowers to a bath and bathe in the luxury of beautiful indigo water. It softens skin and leaves a subtle sweet fragrance.
