    So, ordinarily I’m… not the biggest fan of Butterfly Pea tisane. But this one stands apart for several reasons. First the shape and condition of the flowers is perfect. Not just pretty, but picture-pretty. Exactly as shown here. This is different from other brands I’ve purchased which arrived a little mangled. Perhaps that’s why these also taste better.. fresher, sweeter ( altho not actually sweet). Other Blue Pea Pea tisanes have been spinachy at best, bland at worst for me. But this one is easily drinkable and absolutely great with a mixer. Considering the health benefits, that’s a win in my book.
