Butterfly Pea Flower ดอกอัญชัน (Loose Tea 250 g Pack)
Butterfly Pea Flower (scientific name Clitoria ternatea) is a tropical plant that is native to Southeast Asia. It is a member of the pea family and produces stunning, deep blue flowers that resemble the shape of a butterfly. The flowers are around 3-5 cm in diameter and have five petals.
The blue color of the flowers comes from a natural pigment called anthocyanin, which has antioxidant properties and may have health benefits. The flowers are also sometimes referred to as "blue tea" or "blue chai" because they can be used to brew a flavorful and aromatic tea.
When steeped in hot water, the flowers release their blue pigment, resulting in a vivid blue-colored tea that is often served with honey and lemon. The tea has a slightly earthy and floral taste and is said to have a calming effect on the mind and body. In addition to its use as a beverage, the flower is sometimes used as a natural food coloring in dishes such as rice, desserts, and cocktails.
Butterfly Pea Flower tea has gained popularity in recent years due to its striking appearance and potential health benefits, such as boosting the immune system, promoting healthy hair and skin, and reducing stress and anxiety. It is a caffeine-free alternative to traditional tea and is enjoyed both hot and cold.
