Calming and emotionally soothing tea with a magical blue hue. Comforting notes of rose and dessert spices invite you to stop and take a moment.
Butterfly Pea is a flower with natural blue colour that has been used in East Asia countries forever. It's used as a dye but also for the anti-inflammatory benefits (associated with plants that have this 'blue hue').
Generally regarded as an all-over revitaliser, calmative and 'beauty enhancer' by activating antioxidants to combat oxidative stress and reduce free radical damage which in turn reduces the appearance of premature aging or damaged skin. The anthocyanins (that blue hue) work alongside flavonoid and phenolic constituents to promote collagen synthesisation and promote elasticity. So yes, do use this as part of your Home-Spa beauty treatments as a cool compress for inflamed, tired or damaged skin conditions.
In cultural references it's used to treat everyting from greying hair, poor eyesight and fever, to frigidity, menstrual issues and mental fatigue! I can't see a downside in adding this to anyone's intake ;) Add to that the deliciousness of Rose Petal, Vanilla Bean and Cardamom Pod and quite literally you have a heavenly blue drink.
- Add a slice of lemon and watch the colour change to a bright violet as Blue Butterfly Pea reacts to the pH level.
- Add to gin or vodka cocktails for a colourful botanic twist, and mocktails with a little fizz so you can have a pretty bubbly without the alcohol.
- To make a sweet version, add a small amount of natural Vanilla Extract.
