Made with Butterfly pea flower, native to South East Asia, this blue tea has been around for centuries but is only now getting global attention thanks to its high antioxidant content and ability to fight obesity, enhance memory and even decrease stress. Caffeine-free it can be served hot or cold and as the pH balance of the tea changes (by adding lemon for example), so does its colour.
