Where to Purchase:
Discover the amazingly deep blue color and experience the smooth, floral flavour of our best butterfly pea flowers.
The luscious aroma will remind you of green tea, yet Bluechai’s blue tea is a herbal tisane that is refreshing, cleansing, without any caffeine and unique in color and taste. It’s wonderful hot or iced.
Here at Sororitea Sisters we LOVE finding a new kind of tea or tisane base and when we were contacted by the folks over at Blue Chai we really didn’t know what we were in store for. At first I thought it was just a ‘pretty name’ for a tea company and I was thinking ‘Chai”. BUT…this was more than a tisane or a ‘blue tea’ it was an experience! This is the first time I have had “Blue Tea” and I will say I’m impressed. Not just because it’s a good tasting tisane – it’s fresh and like flowers and peas – and lucky for me I LOVE the taste of fresh peas…it’s also because this is a full experience that goes beyond any tisane I’ve ever had thus far!
What might seem ‘simple’ turned out to be amazingly beautiful and somewhat ‘trippy’. But I wouldn’t want it any other way! THE ingredient in this tisane is 100% Dried Butterfly Pea Flowers also known as Clitoria Ternatea.
If you do ONE thing today make sure it’s THIS…check out these AMAZING photos from their site! They load a little slower but it’s totally worth the wait!
Of course I’m drinking some more of this as I type this and I’m really enjoying it. It’s putting a smile on my face and changing the way I look at the day ahead. Pretty powerful words for a tisane, eh!? The aroma of this is soft and subtle floral and sweet pea combination. The color post infusion is an insanely dark blue color which I LOVE. The taste is much like the aroma…softer, sweet, and subtly floral. It doesn’t leave much of an aftertaste which I appreciate and NO it’s doesn’t turn your tongue BLUE!
The website is a plethora of information, folks, so be sure to check it out! One thing I’m interested in – is the following bit of info I found on their site…
But don’t just drink this tea, use it in cooking, baking – perhaps add it to oatmeal … really! The blue color of the tea can be used as natural, organic food coloring to make blue rice for example. Enjoy Bluechai hot to create comfort, calmness and warmth or add ice and lemon juice to get a mouthwatering drink that refreshes and revitalizes.
How AWESOME is that? And if you check out the photos you will see a lot of those examples! Natural and organic food coloring? I’m TOTALLY there! I just might have to purchase a larger bag of this for non-sipping and to try and tinker with – anything from crafts to creative cooking! I can safely say – I’ve never been this EXCITED about a Tisane before! WOW! What an experience!
