Reeves' Inspection Report
Direct from a farming friend in Thailand, we bring you this butterfly pea flower that brews into a deep, dark blue. If desired, you can impress your friends by creating beverages that transform from blue to purple simply by adding lemon and other acidic liquids.
Reeves' Tasting Notes
A slightly earthy taste, but this will not change the flavor of anything mixed with it.
Reeves' Recommended Uses
Add 3-4 flowers to hot water for blue effect. The deep blue color takes 5 minutes to brew, stirring occasionally will speed the process. Honey is often added to this as a beverage. Add lemon to change liquid to violet.
It is possible to cold-brew this tea directly into liquids. Add 6-7 flowers per liter bottle. Leave overnight. Try it in clear alcohols (like gin or vodka) as an ingredient for color-changing cocktails.
Natural coloring for food and beverages, such as frosting, ice cream, cocktails and tea drinks.
Can be used as a natural clothing dye.
