Unless you’re living in 2010, you’ve probably heard of matcha powder. You know, that vibrant green powder that comes from ground up green tea leaves? So if you’re wondering: “How can we have blue matcha, too?”… well, we’re about to tell you.
Blue matcha is created by grinding up a leaf, similar to how we make green matcha! In this case, it’s the leaf from the Butterfly Pea Flower. Another similarity to green matcha? Blue matcha has been used in ancient cultures and traditional practices for its apparent healing powers.
However, it does differ from green tea! Unlike green matcha powder, or even the the green tea leaf, the Butterfly Pea Flower doesn’t have any caffeine in it! Meaning you can drink it morning, noon and night, and not have it affect your night’s sleep. In fact, there are studies being done (as blue matcha starts to gain steam), that show it can help you to relax and de-stress.
Therefore if you are caffeine sensitive, or just like to avoid it altogether, but want the creaminess that comes with matcha, this is for you!
Another difference? Green matcha is also typically used in traditional practices in Chinese and Japanese cultures, while blue matcha is prominently used in Southeast Asian countries and in Ayurvedic medicine practices.
There is still research that needs to be done on the Butterfly Pea Flower. However, can look to blue matcha’s historical uses to give us a good understanding of why we should incorporate it into our daily routine.
