Every time you create a brew with these flowers, you marvel at the color, which is never exactly the same twice. The Foxes enjoy working with the color blue, perhaps because their world is rich in golden, red, and green hues. Their old language doesn't have a word for the color blue, and in this way they're similar to the ancient Greeks in our world. Blue objects are described as "like the tea"; and the tea's color ranges from robin's egg to cerulean to purple.
The Foxes value these flowers for diverse purposes: as a mild but nourishing tea (try it with honey and citrus); as a natural dye for cloth and yarn; as a way to infuse color into other food and drink; and as a method to quicken a bath of warm water.
But the most compelling quality of these brews is their ability to transform when mixed with other liquids, particularly acidic ones. Try adding a squeeze of lime or lemon to a butterfly pea flower tisane and marvel at its transformation to purple or pink. Freeze the brew into ice cubes to add to a wine spritzer or lemonade.
You'll receive four pyramid tea bags. Each can brew a small pot or 2-4 cups of tisane.
Butterfly Pea Flower Tisane was featured in the Foxes Box (May 2021).
