Create unique, brightly colored cocktails and tea beverages with butterfly pea tea and powder. This unique ingredient has a vibrant blue color that changes to shades of purple or pink with the addition of citrus. Mixologists love butterfly pea powder because of the color-changing effect that adds a magical touch to their cocktails.
Made from the dried petals of the butterfly pea flower, this caffeine-free tisane creates an earthy herbal tea with a deep blue color. The vibrant hue is created by an antioxidant called anthocyanin, the same flavonoid that gives blueberries, blackberries, and eggplant their color. The most unique aspect of blue butterfly pea tea bags is that the color changes shades when the pH of the tea is changed. Try a pinch of citric acid powder to change the acidity level without watering down the beverage and watch the tea change from blue to pink.
