Butterfly Pea Tea

Every Flower is a soul blossoming in the nature.
Bluetea is a herbal tea and has been brewed for centuries in South Asia.They have wonderful health benefits on human body. A cup of Bluepea Tea contains thrice the level of antioxidants of a cup of green tea. In ayurveda Bluepea/ Aparjita is used to enhance memory and recall concentration.

~Cytodine in Bluepea fights cancers

Color of the tea changes depending on the Ph level of the water, thus adding lemon juice can make it violet and sometimes red according to the acidity level of the water.
The tea is prepared by simply adding the flower petals to boiling water and then seeping it for 3-8min. I recommend adding cinnamon, ginger, fenugreek, lemongrass, Tulsi/Basil  to impart wonderful flavor and additional benefits to the tea.

Bluepea is a major ingredient in the Thai food culture and are used to make Blue rice, Latte, Lemonade, Ice tea,  Desserts etc apart from Tea.

P. S. The tea in the picture shows a 'Green color' because I added Bluepea petals to Fenugreek boiled water.
