Instructions

Making The Concentrate

  • Boil the water in a saucepan.
  • If using fresh flowers then while waiting for the water to boil, prepare the Butterfly Pea Flowers by cutting the green bottoms off. If using dried flowers you can use as they come.
  • When the water has boiled turn off the gas and tip in the flowers and put the lid on the saucepan. Allow to sit for 5 minutes without further heating (if you carry on boiling water a bitter taste will develop).
  • When your 5 minutes is up strain the tea concentrate into a jug. 
  • Whilst still warm add the honey and brown sugar and stir to dissolve (you can adjust sweetness by adding more or less to your taste).

Making a Beautiful & Magical Drink

  • Pour about 1/4 to 1/3rd of the tea concentrate into a glass with ice and add 2 teaspoons of lime juice and the blue color will turn to purple like magic. 
  • Top up with soda, sprite or 7-up or just plain water. You can also drink like hot tea with some snacks.
    Enjoy your healthy drink!
