How is Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Rice made?

Apparently butterfly pea flower tea is getting quite trendy — if only for its very ‘Instagrammable’ colour. A vivid blue, the tea changes colour according to the pH level of anything added to it. 

A squeeze of lemon or lime will turn it purple. For those interested in its health benefits, the caffeine–free tea can purportedly help to control diabetes and cholesterol, while working as a natural stress and anxiety reliever. Ayurvedic medicine also prizes butterfly pea flower tea as a memory enhancer, nootropic and antidepressant.
