Looking for an ingredient that will dazzle your customers and set your menu apart? These whole dried butterfly pea flowers from Wild Hibiscus are perfect for crafting stunningly colored teas, cocktails, mocktails, and even foods! When steeped in hot or cold water, butterfly pea flowers produce a mesmerizingly brilliant blue tea that's perfect for adding color to a whole host of recipes. This seemingly-magical tea can even change color before your guests' eyes! Squeeze in a few drops of lemon or lime to change the color from deep blue to purple to pink depending on how much citrus you add. The acidity in the citrus fruits activates the color changing properties of this product. When enjoyed on its own, butterfly pea flower tea has a mild, earthy flavor, somewhat similar to the taste of green tea. This caffeine-free tea is a healthy, all-natural way to add color to beverages without artificial ingredients or large amounts of sugar. It's high in anthocyanin antioxidants and is prized in Ayurvedic medicine, where it is said to improve memory and circulation. To make your own butterfly pea flower tea, steep 1 tsp. of flowers in 1 cup of water. Steep in boiling water for 5 minutes or in cold water for 8 - 10 hours.
While this delicious and healthy tea can be enjoyed plain, its mild flavor and vibrant color make it a great addition to a wide variety of beverages and foods! Add a splash of butterfly pea flower tea to infused waters or fresh-squeezed juices to create brilliantly blue drinks that will enchant your guests. Infuse liquors with butterfly pea flowers to create uniquely beautiful, house-made spirits! Mix this tea into cocktails containing citrus juice to create an alluring purple hue; for color-changing magic that your guests can watch for themselves, try serving a small carafe of butterfly pea flower tea with your fully constructed cocktails. Invite your patrons to pour the tea over their drinks and observe as their beverages change color! You can also try freezing butterfly pea flower tea into ice cubes and serving them with lemonade. As the blue ice cubes melt into the citrus-based beverage, they will slowly turn the yellow lemonade into an eye-catching, purple beverage. This stunning tea can even be added to foods! It makes a particularly good addition to desserts; try mixing butterfly pea flower tea into cake batters or jellies to create charming blue treats.
Though butterfly pea flowers have been used throughout Southeast Asia for centuries to create beautiful herbal teas and traditional foods, these trendy blossoms are beginning to gain popularity all over the world as a natural way to create colorful beverages!
