Blue Angel Tea Latte Recipe

Blue Angel Tea Latte Recipe

 

Here is a delicious tea latte that is 100% caffeine free, and is a gorgeous shade of creamy blue! It’s easy to prepare, and tastes so yummy, your whole family will love it.

 

This tea gets its blue color from an amazing flower from Thailand called butterfly blue pea flower. The flower is loaded with a blue pigment that is a potent antioxidant. The tea is used to calm the nerves and relieve stress. This flower also benefits the skin, hair, and eyes. When you brew the flowers into a tea, it turns the water an amazing true blue that gets deeper the longer you steep it. The flavor of the butterfly blue pea flower tea is a little bit like green bean water, which is why it is traditionally brewed with lemongrass, which completely changes the flavor from blah to aahhh. Lemongrass comes with plenty of health benefits too, from boosting digestion to providing important minerals for skin, hair, and nails. This recipe also contains coconut milk and honey, for a creamy sweet drink that can be enjoyed anytime.

 

I originally made this recipe with organic powdered coconut milk, as that was all I had on hand, so you can use that if you don’t have canned coconut milk.

 

 

For each cup of tea, you will need

  • 1 teaspoon butterfly blue pea flowers
  • 1 teaspoon lemongrass
  • 1 teaspoon honey (more or less, to taste)
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons of coconut milk, more or less, to taste, or a tablespoon of powdered coconut milk
  • 8 oz. hot water

Steep the butterfly blue pea flowers and the lemongrass together in the hot water for two to three minutes, or until the tea becomes a rich clear indigo blue.

Strain or remove the tea infuser

Stir in the honey so that it dissolves completely. Then stir in the coconut milk. You can garnish with a little whipped cream and a sprinkle of toasted coconut for a heavenly angel blue treat.

Try it and let us know what you think!

Hey Tea Lover: If You're Drinking Tea From A Teabag, You Might Be Consuming Thousands Of Plastic Particles With Every Cup

April 15, 2021 1 Comment

Did you know... Many tea companies sell their tea in teabags that are made with plastic? I hate to say it, but it's true. A recent study conducted in 2019 showed that many of the teabags made by some of the most popular brands contain plastic. The study showed that one teabag of tea steeped at 95C (203F) released “approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage.” This is a much higher level of plastic being ingested than what you are exposed to in other foods.
