Organic Butterfly Pea Flowers

Butterfly pea flower tea, commonly known as blue tea, is a caffeine-free herbal tea, or tisane, beverage made from a decoction or infusion of the flower petals or even whole flower of the Clitoria ternatea plant. Clitoria ternatea is also known as butterfly pea, blue pea, Aprajita, Cordofan pea, Blue Tea Flowers or Asian pigeonwings.

The butterfly pea commonly has flowers that are either white, blue, or purple. The tea retains many of the medicinal qualities of the butterfly pea, as well as the bright blue pigment found in petals of some varieties. The blue color derived from the butterfly pea has also made it a popular dye for many centuries as well as medicinal treatment.
