  • 1-2 teaspoons of dried butterfly pea flowers per cup of tea and Hot Water

Optional Ingredients for Flavor and Sweetness:

  • Honey, sugar, or other sweeteners
  • lemon or lime juice
  • Fresh mint leaves


1. Five to six flowers per cup are steeped with hot water.
2. Let it steep for three to five minutes. The result is a stunning cobalt blue.
3. Cooled and enhanced with a bit of coconut syrup and mint or lime, the “Butterfly Pea Flower Tea” becomes a refreshing summer drink.

A nice visual effect: Adding a few drops of lemon juice changes the color of the tea to purple. For a light red hue, you can use pink hibiscus flowers instead of lemon. Especially in cocktail mixing, the unusual play of colors is a real highlight. If you let the tea steep in 800 ml of gin for about 40 minutes and then add 2cl of it to tonic, you’ll quickly have a refreshing summer cocktail.
