I recently got back from Taiwan visiting my family and my dad brought me this flower: Butterfly Pea Tea, we dried it and made it into tea served chilled or warm. Butterfly pea is highly valued in Ayurvedic medicine and “has been used for centuries as a memory enhancer, nootropic, antistress, anxiolytic, antidepressant, anticonvulsant, tranquilizing and sedative agent.” Add lemon juice and the color turns pink
