The butterfly pea is a pretty flower that will give a fabulous blue or purple tint to your drinks.
Originating from Asia, the naturally blue butterfly pea (Clitoria ternatea) is a much-appreciated natural dye. It is also commonly referred to as anchan flower, or simply blue pea flower.
The colour of the butterfly pea infusion varies from a vivid blue (in neutral liquid) to a royal purple (in acidic liquid), depending on the pH of the liquid.
Its taste will remain neutral, with a subtle herbal touch.
The butterfly pea flower also has a recognized antioxidant effect: its blue pigment is due to anthocyanin of the flavonoid family.
For a remarkable and eye-catching effect, we recommend using 4g (3 tbsp.) of butterfly pea flowers per litre of beverage. Have fun!
