Sharing with you a unique kind of tea/juice. This is called Butterfly Pea Tea. If you like the sour taste – Add a few drops of lime juice to create a sweet ‘n’ sour flavor and turn the luminous indigo tea a deeper purple color.

  • Hot tea is great first thing in the morning, it detoxifies the digestive system and gets things moving. As the afternoon and evening roll in, you can chill some butterfly pea flower tea in ice cube trays and when ready, plop a few in a tall glass of water for a refreshing and revitalizing boost.

CARING YOUR BUTTERFLY PEA

Butterfly Pea (Clitoria Ternatea) has developed into a blooming bush with vigorous growth. Plenty of flowers can be picked fresh on a daily basis. To keep the vines from invading nearby plants you will have to start to cut the bush to shape from time to time and you should provide support or trellis for the vines to climb. The best is to plant it beside your fence just what I did.

It is well known in Asian countries and usually grows in tropical countries like the Philippines. They said a very feminine name. Why not try planting it in your garden?
