Butterfly pea flowers are traditionally used to brew a soothing and healthful herbal tea called blue pea tea. Today I am going to make this vibrant blue drink at home in just 5 minutes.


Butterfly pea flowers are traditionally used to brew a delicate blue tea and as a natural food colorant for rice dishes and desserts.

The wonderful flowers have a striking blue color because of the high concentration of blue-violet pigments called anthocyanin’s. These blue pigments are powerful antioxidants responsible for the many health benefits of these exotic flowers: aid in weight loss, better blood sugar control, and healthier skin and hair.

You need just two ingredients o for making this tea. Need water and butterfly pea flower.

I used pea flower in my garden you can use dried pea flower which is available online shopping.
