Commonly recognized as Blue Tea, our Butterfly Pea Inclusions is the dried flower and petals of the Clitoria ternatea plant. Caffeine-free, it can be used to make a naturally blue herbal tea, or tisane. The blue infusion can change color to purple or pink when lemon, lime or other ingredients that change the pH are added.
Native to the tropical regions of Asia, the Butterfly Pea Flower is known for its strikingly deep blue color. The flower is used as a natural food coloring and is commonly used to tint rice dishes in Malaysia. In Thailand, a blue drink called "nam dok anchan" is sometimes consumed with a drop of sweet lime juice which turns the drink into a pink-purple color.
