Botanical Name: Clitoria ternatea

Origin: Sri Lanka

Info: Rich in antioxidants, its vibrant blue petals add a touch of magic to teas, cocktails, and culinary creations.

Derived from a plant that is common to most Asian countries, butterfly pea flower tea has been brewed for centuries but only recently been introduced to tea drinkers outside the indigenous area. Butterfly pea flower tea gains its distinctive tint from the deep blue color of the petals that has made the plant a popular dye for centuries. One of the aspects of the tea is the fact that the liquid changes color based on the pH level of the substance added to it, for instance, adding lemon juice to the tea will turn it purple.

A traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Butterfly Pea Flower has been used for centuries as a memory enhancer, nootropic, antistress, anxiolytic, antidepressant, anticonvulsant, tranquilizing and sedative agent.

Butterfly pea flower is also believed to have a calming effect on the mind, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. This can be particularly helpful for those who struggle with chronic stress or anxiety, as it can help to bring a sense of balance and peace to the mind.
