Butterfly pea flowers, a magical flower native to Asia, transform any cup of tea or glass of lemonade into a vibrant blue hue due to the natural pigments in the tea.  The addition of any high acid ingredient, such as lemon or lime, increases the wonderful blue hue.

Simply add a pinch of flowers to your tea or lemonade when it is brewing and remove when the color pigment you desire is achieved.  Or, create a strongly-brewed butterfly pea tea by steeping the flowers in hot water, then add a splash of the blue liquid into your lemonade or cocktail for a color-changing twist!

We source the flowers directly from Thailand so they are fresh and ship to you quickly.

You can also purchase our Magical Butterfly Herbal Tea Blend for the butterfly pea flowers already blended into a delicious tea.

About the Tea Maker

I'm Andy Hayes, founder of Plum Deluxe and chief tea maker. Please allow me to walk you through the process I use to create the unique tea blends you'll discover being a Plum Deluxe tea drinker. While you may be envisioning lab coats and a giant factory with stacks of ingredients and curious equipment, the Plum Deluxe studio in Portland, Oregon is decidedly more low-key.

I start with an intention in mind - a great tea to sip while reading a book, the perfect tea for cheering on a holiday celebration, an ideal tea for serving after a big meal. I draw upon my intuition and years of experience to blend up 2 or 3 different "test teas."

Using ingredients from around the world, our flavors are often informed by our love for the Pacific Northwest. Examples of this can be seen in our limited-edition Portland Rose City Chai and the best-selling Oregon Breakfast Black Tea. Next, I steep, sip, review, adjust, repeat. Teas that pass muster often go out to a small group of "tea testers" for further evaluation. Only the best teas are hand-blended in larger batches for our Plum Deluxe customers.

We are a small, specialized, family-owned-and-operated business. You have my promise that everything we make is blended with love, positive intentions, and so much gratitude for you, our Plum Deluxe customer.

Great for science project learning about anthocyanins

I conducted a brief and limited lesson with my five- and two-year old about the properties of this flower. We theorized what might happen when we add lemon juice and guessed how the resulting red color would affect the blue tea. Thank you for offering pure butterfly pea flowers for sake so we can have a control sample. I can’t wait for my kids to become tea blending “alchemists”.

Best butterfly pea plant petals I've found

The search for quality butterfly pea plant for dying purposes was how I first ran across Plum Deluxe, and they have promptly become my favorite tea makers for their quality leaf and unique blends. It's very hard to find fresh, good quality petals. It's often sold as a powder, which makes for a bunch of powder at the bottom of your glass, and not as clear of a color (I think, anyway). Using full petals preserves the flavor and the color alike. Butterfly pea plant has an unusual flavor to it, which some people don't seem to be able to taste, but others find quite strong. It's almost a musty flavor, which to me is pleasant, but maybe it's a contrast to the bright Hawaiian punch color and so confuses people. Like most herbal teas, it's also purported to have health benefits.

Magical Tea

It was easy to use Plum Deluxe's site to order this tea and delivery was much faster than I expected. The quality of the tea itself was wonderful and my husband and I were amazed that the tea lived up to it's magical description. The flavor is delicate and unexpected, and, of course, the fact that it turns blue is simply wonderful. We use it to make Full Moon Milk as well as enjoying a cup of it on it's own. Thank you, Plum Deluxe, for the beautiful and unexpected drink!

Beautiful Color

The Butterfly Pea flowers give a beautiful blueish purple color. My son loves the pretty lemonade it makes. My only tiny disappointment was that I thought just adding them to the lemonade would bring out the color. It turns out you have to boil/heat them in lemon water, then cool and add to the lemonade.

Still love it!

This was a refill for "blue tea" as my teen calls it. With a little honey, it puts a happy face on all of us. It is so nice to drink this smooth, beautiful tea.
