Nature's own vivid blue potion: Butterfly Peaflower steeps into an azure liquor teeming with high levels of anthocyanins--a youthing & protective antioxidant for beautifying skin, healthy, lustrous hair & slimming effects.
Native to Thailand, "Clitoria ternatea" has been sipped for centuries as an herbal beauty enhancer, nootropic & memory booster.
Steeping instructions: Steep 1 tsp in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes. Add lemon to turn the tisane purple. Beautiful as an iced tea as well.
Flavor: We love blending these flowers into our white teas to turn them blue. The flavor on their own is earthy, bright and savory.
"Anthocyanins possess antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-obesity effects, as well as prevention of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) . Therefore, anthocyanins extracted from edible plants are potential pharmaceutical ingredients." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5613902/#CIT0002
