Ingredient: 100% organically grown butterfly pea flowers (Clitoria ternatae)

Butterfly Pea Flower is also known as blue pea, bluebellvine, aprajita, cordofan pea or Asian pigeon-wings flower.

Native to equatorial Southeast Asia, Butterfly Pea Flower has been used for centuries as a healing herb thanks to its medicinal properties and as a natural food dye by extracting the deep blue colour of the petals.

Petals of the butterfly pea flowers are found to contain flavonol glycosides, mainly kaempferol, myricetin and quercetin. Other chemical constituents that contribute to its health effects include phenols, saponins, anthocyanins, flavanols and triterpenoids.

Brewing as a caffeine-free tea

  • Add 1-2 tbsp of butterfly pea flowers into a teapot or jug
  • Pour 350 mL of boiled water at 90°C
  • Let steep for 3 minutes, then serve hot as a tea (optional honey to taste)
  • The tea has a subtle earthy and woody taste

Alternatively, add a tbsp of honey, add ice, serve it as refreshing health drink.

Watch the colour changes from cobalt blue to violet when you squeeze a few drops of lemon into the butterfly pea flower tea. It’s mesmerizing!

Butterfly pea gets its colour from anthocyanins, specifically from a mixture of acylated delphinidin compounds, which have pH indicating properties, by changing colours!

  • In the presence of mild acidic pH, the blue colour changes to purple/violet
  • As the acidity gets stronger, the colour becomes hot pink!

 

As a natural food colouring

  • Blue rice: Add 2-3 tbsp of flowers into a pot of rice and cook in the rice cooker
  • Blue baked goods: Use the brewing technique above, sieve out the flowers, and use the extraction as natural colouring

Store in a cool, dry place.
