How to make Butterfly Pea Apple Tea?
Globally the colour blue is an overwhelmingly favourite colour and the food industry has had great success with blue coloured candy, sugary drinks and cereals. But a vibrant natural blue that is stable, predictable and healthy is rare indeed. Enter Clitoria ternatea (Blue Butterfly pea vine flower) screaming “I’m true vibrant blue because nature, in its unruly variety, has made me so and, bathed in my colour blue, I bring you wellness in body, mind and spirit.”
Blue as a butterfly, this powder is made from the special blue flower of the Malaysia’s Bunga Telang or and Ajaparita in India plant and Butterfly Blue Pea in Australia (described in as “Blue Butterfly Pea Powder” in our product brief or Clitoria Ternatea its scientific name). Long revered for its medicinal and decorative properties, Blue Pea has been celebrated in the South East Asia for the powerful support it offers to the eyes, skin, brain, and blood. Blue Butterfly Powder has been taking the custom drink world by storm, replacing chemical-filled blue dyes to produce eye-catching brilliant blue drinks. What's even more astonishing is the sensitive pH nature of the powder giving it chameleon-like properties. You can literally watch your drink change from deep blue (pH of 8-4), to vibrant plum (pH of 3), to a light pink (pH of 2) as you pour in lemon juice or any other acidic ingredient!
