To make tea from Butterfly Pea flowers:

Simply steep 8-12 flowers, fresh or dried, in a cup of hot water, let sit 5-10 minutes.

When there is no color left in the petal, strain the liquid and discard the flowers. You will be left with an amazing indigo coloured broth.

The tea can also be consumed with some drops of lime juice to create a sweet ‘n’ sour flavor and turn the luminous indigo tea a deeper purple color.

Add honey to sweeten and enjoy!
