Latin (botanical) name of Butterfly Pea – Clitoria Ternatea. The plant is also known as Butterfly Bean, Blue Pea, Blue Tea, Aparajita flower, Conch flower, Sangupushpam (Tamil name).

Clitoria Ternatea originally grows in tropical equatorial Asia, it is widespread in Thailand, Nepal, and Myanmar. Due to the growing popularity of butterfly pea tea as a healthy drink, the plant is now cultivated across the world.

Its flowers are brewed into intense blue-color tea, which turns into purple by adding lemon or any other acids. Being a popular drink in Asia, it is also used as a natural food coloring for rice and traditional desserts. Here, in Thailand, it is usually a cold sweet beverage that you can find at street markets and local shops.

Taste of Blue Tea: The liquor has an amazing intense blue color and thick brew looks like blue ink. But the flavor is not distinguished. Clitoria has grassy/vegetable taste, no sweet, no bitter, little bit tart or even astringent.
