Butterfly Pea Flower - Southeast Asia
Butterfly pea flower comes from Southeast Asia. It is vine grown and is regarded as having a long list of Ayurvedic healing properties. Similar to green teas, it is rich in antioxidants and is naturally caffeine-free. This beautiful little flower is packed with the catechin EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) along with anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting elements such as flavonoids, tannins, and polyphenols. Butterfly Pea Flower Tea brews up to be a lovely bright blue color. If you add an acid -- like lemon/lime juice -- to the brewed tea, the color changes from blue to purple. Magical little flower!
