ICED BUTTERFLY PEA FLOWER, LEMONGRASS & GINGER TEA

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

We have used our Holy Mother Refresh Botanical Tea to make this very pretty & nutritious iced tea.

Sometimes we just need a little magic in our day, and what could be more magical than a delicious hydrating tea that turns from a vibrant blue colour to a rich purple with the squeeze of a wedge of lime or lemon. Based on the stunning blue butterfly pea flower, with lemongrass, lemon myrtle & ginger, this tea blend isn’t just pretty - it is a wonderful source of antioxidants which can help alleviate inflammation, boost immune function, promote eye health and prevent cancer cell growth. Butterfly pea flowers have also been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat anxiety, stress and as a memory booster.
