Butterfly Pea Tea taste:

Butterfly Pea Flower Tea

Over the years, I have come to love the butterfly pea flower/blue flower in my teas. It has subtle taste which is more bland with just the flowers in it. But mix it with honey it gives that tinge of floral taste with sweetness. Now add lemon juice, it turns to lovely purple.

Its more like 2 in 1 tea. I like the version of honey and lemon more than the first version. Maybe my love for lemon shows in more ways than I would imagine. But you get this cup after cup of refreshing taste every time you brew it.

Its not magic or anything! The change in color is due to the PH level of whatever it is mixed in. The more PH level, the purple it turns.

  1. This is so, so awesome! I saw this on your Instagram and thought how insanely pretty it looks in blue. I’d never come across Butterfly Pea Flower at all, and I never would have thought you could buy the dried leaves (not sure where but I’ll Google it for the UK) and make a blue or purple tea like this. Very cool! xx
