Herbal teas have taken the world by a storm in recent years. They not only have a huge consumership but they are also full of potential health-related benefits. There are a large number of herbal teas that have made their mark on tea lovers across the world, and Blue Pea Tea is one of them. 

Blue Pea Tea, as the name suggests, is made from dried blue pea flowers and is known for its stunning blue color. This tea can be relished both hot or cold and offers a throng of benefits. Some people consume blue pea tea for weight loss purpose, other than its antioxidant properties and its ability to fight stress. 

Why Blue Pea Tea?

Blue tea, or butterfly pea flower tea, is a caffeine-free herbal tea, made with dried or fresh leaves of the Clitoria ternatea plant. The best thing about the blue tea is that it is absolutely caffeine-free, and it is packed with antioxidants.

Uses Of Blue Pea Tea 

Blue Pea Tea is more than just a beverage. Its deep blue colour is extremely popular in Thailand and Vietnam, where it is served post dinner, usually with lemon and honey added to it. Adding lemon juice to the tea changes the pH of the drink, and it changes color from deep blue to purple. The tea leaves are also used to add color in cocktails as well. 

How To Make Blue Tea: Things To Keep In Mind

Blue tea can be made as any other regular tea, by simply adding hot water to the blue tea bag. Ideally, the tea should be had without any sugar or honey. Some people also choose to have blue tea with lemon juice, sugar or honey as it adds an additional boost to the already wonderful beverage.

Many dietitians and experts recommend that the hot cup of blue tea should be had at least an hour before meals. It can also be had one hour after a meal.
