Butterfly Pea Zen Tea: A Calming Herbal Infusion

I have had some serious hits to my emotional well being this past week or two. It’s been a struggle to care for my brain and heart. I am grateful for the herbal help I have given myself, which I attribute to much of my coming out of my deeply depressive state over the last few years.

This has been the biggest challenge since that time, and one of the most important things I have to do is remember to make time to be calm. When things get bad for me, I do ‘all the things’ and frantically move through each day, Bill Burr-ing down my actual feelings. I think if I just keep moving, it will all be better soon. It never is, but the body and mind have an amazing ability to stuff a lot of negative things into little boxes.

I created this tea blend first because I wanted something calming. And second, I am a science geek and that is where Butterfly Pea comes in. Who wouldn’t love the color-changing effect? Anyhow, thanks for reading and I hope you try this delicious recipe.

Butterfly Pea Zen Tea

This blend is more than just a tea; it’s a moment of tranquility in a cup, combining the mesmerizing hues of butterfly pea flowers with the soothing essence of herbs. Perfect for unwinding after a long day or as a peaceful companion to your meditation practice, this tea blend promises relaxation and rejuvenation. Let’s embark on this flavorful journey together.



  1. Boil Water: Bring water to a boil, then let it cool for a minute. This is crucial as boiling water can scald the delicate herbs, affecting their flavors and benefits.
  2. Steep and Steep: Pour the slightly cooled water over your herbal blend. Allow it to steep for 5-7 minutes. As the tea steeps, you’ll see the water transform into a stunning shade of blue, thanks to the magic of butterfly pea flowers.
  3. Enjoy the Color Play: For an added touch of whimsy, squeeze a bit of lemon into your brewed tea. Watch as the acidity magically changes the tea’s color from blue to a delightful purple, adding not just a visual twist but also a refreshing tangy taste.
  4. Sweeten as Desired: While this blend is designed to be enjoyed in its natural state, feel free to add a touch of honey or agave syrup if a hint of sweetness is desired.
  5. Serve and Savor: Pour the infused tea into your favorite cup. Take a moment to breathe in the aromatic blend before taking your first sip. Let the herbal notes of chamomile, lemongrass, mint, and lavender wash over you, grounding you in the present moment.

This is your reminder to pause, breathe, and connect with the simplicity and beauty of the moment. Whether you’re seeking a peaceful start to your morning, a midday oasis of calm, or a soothing end to your evening, this tea is your companion on the path to relaxation and inner peace.
