How to make a Hot Butterfly Pea Tea:

Place the dried flowers ( approx 2 tsp) into a tea strainer or a reusable tea bag .You could also just put them loose into the cup, then strain them out or drink around them.

Steep the butterfly pea tea for 5-10 minutes in boiling water. Of course steeping the tea longer will extract more color and flavor, but it isn’t necessary.

Remove the tea strainer. Look at that deep blue color! I mean, this is one of the prettiest tea in the world .

Top Tip! Add Lemon Juice or Lime Juice to taste: This is what changes the color of the tea from blue to purple. It also adds some extra flavor. Lemon juice boosts the Vitamin C content of the drink as well.

To sweeten:
You could use maple syrup, or honey for a neutral flavor profile. Or, if you’d like to add extra flavour, you could use vanilla syrup, lavender simple syrup, etc.Afew drops of almond extract. It goes really well with the flavour of the butterfly pea tea.

The ingredients for the iced version are the same as the hot version, except for the ice cubes!
