  • Kettle/Pot


  • 1 tsp Butterfly Pea Flower Tea dried flowers (sometimes with dried lemongrass)
  • 250 ml Distilled Water
  • 1 tsp Honey optional
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice optional


  • Boil the water and then let it cool to 85 degrees Celsius.
  • Pour the water over the butterfly pea flowers.
  • Let steep for no longer than 4 minutes (I usually press it at 3 minutes and start pouring).
  • You can optionally mix in honey and lemon juice for a more traditional Thai/Vietnamese serving method.


If you want to make iced tea, then strain the flowers out after 4 minutes and place the liquid tea into the refrigerator for a few hours. It is perfectly acceptable to drink this tea cold.
