Exhibit 1: Thailand, the country where we've sourced this luxury grade dried Blue Pea Flower. For centuries, the Thai people have had a love affair with a syrupy beverage known as nam dok anchan. This fabulous beverage made with dried flowers, lime juice and sugar is as delicious as it is easy to prepare. These petals also make a fabulous ingredient to your own custom tea drinks or cocktails.

What does Ayurveda say about the Blue Pea Flower? According to India's traditional medicine, Blue Pea Flower has been in use for centuries as an antidepressant, anticonvulsant, sedative and memory enhancer.
The Butterfly Pea Flower's vibrant blue petals are rich in anthocyanins, the same antioxidant compounds found in blueberries, tart cherries, purple cabbage and other blue, red or purple produce. An intensely pigmented plant is often a cue of the beneficial phytonutrients inside. The darker the color, the higher the content of anthocyanins.
