Enjoy a little magic in your life? Look no further. Butterfly Blue Pea is magical on multiple levels. For starters, freshly brewed Blue Pea is said to treat aches and pains, reduce inflammation.
A reasonably smooth lightly vegetative cup. Rare herbal tea consumed for 'health' at Thai herbal spas.
What's more, antioxidants in the blue pea flower can help relax the stomach and ease digestion after meals. For this last reason alone blue pea tea is as common in parts of Southeast Asia as camomile is in North America, usually blended with honey, mint, ginger or passion fruit.
Now for the real magic. Brew a cup of butterfly blue pea, squeeze a few drops of lemon juice into your cup and the deep blue liquor will turn a handsome purple. Wow! Why? Blue pea reacts to the pH level of whatever you add to the cup. If that isn't magic we don't know what is.
