We organically grow, dry and ship our own butterfly pea tea, know in Thailand as ‘Dhok Anchan’ direct from our home in Trat province.
This blue herbal tea (proanthocyanidins) is made from the dried flowers of the clitoria kordofan vine.
Butterfly pea AKA Clitoria ternatea has many common names around the world including Cordofan pea (Sudan), Campanilla (Panama), Papito (Puerto Rico) and Asian pigeonwings.
The plant species belongs to the Fabaceae family and the flowers of this vine take on the shape of human female genitals, hence the Latin name of the genus “Clitoria”,
Not only is Butterfly pea a beautiful and vivacious vine to grow on a trellis but in Thailand the flowers, leaves, seeds and roots are widely used as a medicinal herb for its anti-depression and anti-inflammatory benefits. Butterfly pea is also rich in vitamin A, C and E.
The flowers are also used shredded in salads and for coloring Thai desserts like sticky rice. It is high in anthocyanin to improve eyesight, nourish hair, provides antioxidants and boost body immunity. When made into hot or cold drink, Butterfly pea tea is extremely thirst quenching and relaxing.
