New Tea & Tisane
Butterfly Pea Flower
Feeling Blue? We've got what you need.
Butterfly Pea Flowers, also known as Blue Pea & Asian Pigeonwings, are from a climbing plant indigenous to SE Asia, specifically Thailand & Vietnam. When steeped, these pretty flowers turn the water a mesmerizing blue hue, naturally, right before your eyes.
Loaded with anti-oxidants & catechins, this caffeine-free treat has a mild taste that is best compared to chamomile. Try it hot or chilled. Many enjoy incorporating Butterfly Pea Flowers into cocktails, mocktails & even lemonade for dramatic effect.
Delight your friends & family with a little "magic" trick! Add lemon or lime (Citrus) which alters the pH of the liquid & results in the color changing to a deep Violet or even Pink.

Kanchanjangha Tea Estate, established in 1984, was based on a cooperative model with a mission to rid its community of poverty. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjungha in Nepal, the third highest mountain in the world, over 100 farmers with pooled land holdings, grow tea at an altitude of 4,000-6,000 feet above sea level. The result is Kanchanjangha Estate which is blessed with pristine Himalayan climatic conditions that produce highly unique & aromatic teas.
This exquisite black tea offers hints of raisins, cherries & dark cocoa with a light smoky finish.
