Butterfly pea tea originates from South-East Asia where countries have been drinking a mixture of the butterfly-pea flower and dried lemongrass for centuries. When steeped in warm to hot water, the butterfly pea flower turns the water blue. Add in some lemon juice and the PH of the tea changes and the color fades from blue to purple.
The same can be said for beverages, and one distinctive drink is making waves today because of its ability to change color, going from blue to pink to purple. It’s none other than butterfly pea tea. Discover more about this “magic” concoction and why, aside from its out-of-this-world appearance, it may have potential health benefits as well.
Butterfly pea is a climbing legume, with pinnate, alternately-arranged leaves composed of five to six oval leaflets, which are thin, papery and membranous. The slender stems of the plant are covered with short, soft hairs. The small flowers, which are beautiful and funnel-shaped, come in different colors including pink, white and dark blue.They resemble a woman’s genitals; hence, the botanical name.
Like green tea, Butterfly Pea Flower tea is full of potent antioxidants, and has even been studied for its ability to help protect the skin against premature aging
