Butterfly Pea powder – The Power Powder! is known to help

Also known as Asian Pigeon Wings, Blue Bell Vine, Blue Pea, Cordofan Pea and Darwin pea, ‘Butterfly Pea’ (Clitoria ternatea) is an amazing brain boosting herb native to tropical equatorial Asia. A traditional Ceylon and Ayurvedic medicine, Clitoria Ternatea has been consumed for centuries as a memory enhancer, brain booster, anti-stress and calmative agent.

What is Butterfly Pea Tea?

Butterfly pea flower tea is a caffeine-free herbal tea, or tisane, beverage made from a decoction or infusion of the leaves of the Clitoria ternatea plant and dried Lemongrass or dried Pandanus leaf. The ternatea is also known as butterfly-pea, blue-pea, Aprajita, Cordofan pea, or Asian pigeon wings.

Derived from a plant that is common to most southeast Asian countries, butterfly pea flower tea has been brewed for centuries but only recently been introduced to tea drinkers outside the indigenous area. Butterfly pea flower tea retains many of the medicinal properties of the Clitoria ternatea as well as extracting the deep blue color of the petals that have made the plant a popular dye for centuries. One of the aspects of the tea is the fact that the liquid changes color based on the pH level of the substance added to it, for instance, adding lemon juice to the tea will turn it purple.

Color Changing Butterfly Pea Drinks

Butterfly Pea Tea is often drink with added ’extras’ and the most interesting thing about it is the special colour changing character when you change the pH value.  Adding acidic ingredients turns the blue an even deeper shade of purple/indigo whereas adding alkaline substances like Hibiscus, will result in a red colour.

Butterfly Pea Powder or Flowers?

You can use butterfly pea powder to make tea, but more popular are the actual butterfly pea flowers, either fresh or dried, steeped in hot water or as an infusion.  Butterfly pea tea is an even more healthy alternative to the usual green teas that are more commonly available and it has been used in the far East for centuries as a food healthy supplement.  One handful of flowers in a bowl of water will make tea for several people.  The brightness of the blue result will depend on how long you boil the water – darker blue the longer you boil it.
