Butterfly Pea Tea Latte

I love tea just about as much as I love coffee. Coffee by morning, tea by night.

So, when I made this tea, I almost couldn’t bring myself to drink it because it’s just so pretty.

Now, if you didn’t know, Butterfly pea tea latte is by far one of the most memorable drinks you will ever make!

The vibrant blue color comes from steeping butterfly pea flowers that are dried and brewed, the same as you would brew tea leaves.

Basically, it’s an edible flower that gives a gorgeous blue color.
