Making of Blue Tea Concentrate with dried Butterfly Pea Flower

Blue tea, also known as butterfly pea flower tea, is a type of herbal tea made from the dried petals of the Clitoria ternatea plant. The tea is known for its vibrant blue color, which is derived from the natural pigments in the flowers. Here's a simple recipe to make a blue tea concentrate:

  • Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. You can use a kettle or a saucepan for this.

  • Once the water is boiling, add 2 tablespoons of dried butterfly pea flowers to the hot water.

  • Remove the pot from heat and let the flowers steep in the hot water. Allow it to steep for about 10-15 minutes. The longer you steep, the more intense the color and flavour will be.

  • After steeping, strain the tea to remove the flowers. You can use a fine mesh strainer or a tea infuser. This will leave you with a vibrant blue liquid.

  • Allow the tea concentrate to cool to room temperature. You can speed up this process by placing it in the refrigerator.

  • Once cooled, transfer the blue tea concentrate to a clean and airtight container. You can store it in the refrigerator for a few days.

  • To enjoy the blue tea, you can dilute the concentrate with hot or cold water, depending on your preference. Add honey, lemon, or other flavorings if desired.
