We've all been through the fad of green tea, white tea, and even black tea. But there is a new tea in town, blue tea and it might be kicking ass at being the healthiest. It goes by the name of Butterfly pea flower tea and is a herbal tea which is 100% caffeine free. Not only is it gorgeous, it is made from an infusion of Clitoria Ternatea plant and dried Lemongrass leaves. Though it was just a dye for a really long time, because of its strong colours (remember not to spill it on your white shirt), it has finally hit popularity because of its health benefits. Here are ways in which it helps and why you should switch to blue tea asap.
Similar to other herbal teas, Blue tea has antioxidants which help detox your body and lead to other health benefits. It fights cell-damaging free radicals and prevents your body from developing toxins.
So this tea is something known as a nootropic, which basically means that it enhances your creativity, brain function, cognitive functions and motivates your mind. Maybe a healthier alternative for coffee this study-season?
Its antioxidant properties are great for skin and hair, it also is packed with vitamins and minerals which promote anti-aging. It also contains anti-glycation properties which are basically all your skin needs, to top it with the flavonoids it has - increasing collagen in your body and making you a queen.
Statistically, our generation is stressed out, leading to higher cases of anxiety and depression. But the antioxidants in blue tea plays a huge role in lifting your mood.
Clitoria Ternatea leaf is known to lower blood sugar levels by obstructing your body's glucose intake from food. Hence, making it ideal for people with diabetes.
