Also known by its scientific name, Clitoriaternatea, butterfly pea is a plant native to Asia. It is rich in anthocyanins, which are the antioxidant compounds responsible for its unique blue color.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of butterfly pea flower tea is its ability to change color when the pH balance changes. A deep blue tea infusion will turn purple with the addition of lemon juice (acidic nature), turning a deeper shade of purple.

Tasting Notes: Butterfly pea flower tea tastes like a fine green tea which has an earthy and woody flavor, which feels fresh and evokes citrus with a smooth finish.

Harvest:  As the perennial plants can be grown all throughout the year, they will grow their best when you plant them at the beginning of the autumn season or at the end of the spring. Annual plants have to be planted during these particular times.
