Butterfly Pea with Lemongrass is a brand new and highly unusual Herbal Tea.
When infused the tea is a striking Blue.
It is very smooth and creamy, and as a herbal tea contains no caffeine.
It is also fun to see the colour change to purple when a little lemon is added.
Butterfly Pea, Clitoria ternatea, is a plant species belonging to the Fabaceae family.
It is a perennial herbaceous plant, with elliptic, obtuse leaves and grows as a vine or creeper.
In Southeast Asia the flower is used as a natural food colouring.
In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, it is ascribed various qualities including memory enhancing, nootropic, anti-stress, anxiolytic, antidepressant, anticonvulsant, tranquilizing, and sedative properties.
In traditional Chinese medicine, and consistent with the Western concept of the doctrine of signatures, the plant has been ascribed properties affecting female libido due to its similar appearance to the female reproductive organ.
