Butterfly Pea Flower Tea
I love Butterfly Pea Flower Tea – it’s like a magical tea that changes color from blue to purple when you add lime juice! Butterfly pea flower tea is a caffeine-free herbal tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold. This tea is common in Thailand and Vietnam, where it is mixed with honey and lemon.
To make this tea, start by bringing water to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add dried flowers to the water. Cover and leave before steeping until completely cooled. Divide the mixture between 2 small glasses and dilute as required with water. Add ice and sweetener, and add lime juice drop by drop until you see the color change from blue to purple. Garnish the drink with rosemary and serve immediately.
