Blue Butterfly Pea Flower
This tisane comes from the Clitoria ternatea plant from southeast Asia. These flowers have been used for centuries in Asia for their antioxidant (Anthocyanin) health benefits. They contain calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and many other vitamins and minerals. It has been used to help with diabetes, brain function, as an anti-inflammatory, and as a fatigue buster. The infusion offers up an enticing indigo blue color! The liquor is slightly earthy, natural and extremely light. When you add lemon, the color turns purple! Brew it as an herbal infusion, prepare it as a latte, add to cocktails, or add it as a water substitute to your rice. The possibilities are endless!
