More info

Blue as a butterfly, this powder is made from the blue flower of the Malaysia’s Bunga Telang, Ajaparita in India and Butterfly Blue Pea in Australia. Long revered for its medicinal and decorative properties, Butterfly Blue Pea flower has been celebrated in South East Asia for the powerful support it offers to the eyes, skin, brain, and blood.

The Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder has been taking the world by storm, replacing chemical-filled blue dyes to produce eye-catching brilliant blue drinks. What's even more astonishing is the sensitive pH nature of the powder giving it chameleon-like properties. You can literally watch your drink change from deep blue (pH of 5- 8), to vibrant plum (pH of 3), to a light pink (pH of 2) as you pour in lemon juice or any other acidic ingredient!

Pulut Tai Tai - A Classic Nyonya Kuih with a Beautiful Blue Hue

This petite looking Nyonya Kuih has the famous bright blue colour tinted on the kuih. This simple yet elegant Nyonya delight is also a traditional Nyonya wedding specialty, a MUST have in any Peranakan wedding. Commonly served as a dessert or a delicacy during the Straits Chinese wedding, this 'kuih' is made of glutinous rice steamed in coconut milk and compacted in a wooden frame to be cut into desired shapes. The vibrant blue in certain parts of the glutinous rice enhances the beauty of this 'kuih', known also as 'Pulut Tai Tai' for its elegant outlook. 'Tai Tai' refers to rich man's wife's who lives a life of leisure. The contrasting colour of the coconut jam/'kaya' together with the vibrant blue and white of the glutinous rice makes this 'kuih' delightful and pleasing to the eyes. It tastes equally good with either the pandan-flavoured or the usual brown 'kaya'. The slight tinge of saltiness from the glutinous rice coupled with the sweetness of the 'kaya' makes this 'kuih' a delight to savour.

Ingredients

A
  • 820g glutinous rice (soaked overnight)
  • 1 teaspoon of Blue Butterfly Powder (to your desired colour) - dissolve in 3 tablespoons warm water
  • a few pieces banana leaf
B
  • 760 ml thick coconut milk
  • 3 pandan leaves (knotted together)
  • 2 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of Blue Butterfly Powder in 3-4 tablespoons of water - let it rests.
  2. Mix soaked glutinous rice with Ingredients B and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Steam the rice over high heat for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix well with chopsticks.
  4. Stir in blue butterfly powder liquid into the cooked rice, mix well giving it a nice marble like creation and steam it for 5 minutes.
  5. Line a 19 cm square tin with banana leaves. Spoon cooked blue rice and white rice into the tin
  6. Cover the rice with banana leaf and place a heavy object on top to compress the rice - traditionally a mortar is used in the Peranakan household.

Can I brew Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder?

You can if you want to but we recommend that you brew in warm water. Anything boiled in heat will remove all its health benefits.

Must I store My Brew Tea in an air tight container after opening?

Like any product once opened it is recommended that it be stored in a container as this will ensure there is no external contamination from such things as insects or even moisture and of course the accidental spillage.

If I leave My Blue Tea exposed, will the properties decline or oxidised?

Due to the process we employ, the properties will last however like all products exposure to external contamination and moisture, they may impact the product, particularly the latter given the humid climate in Malaysia.

What is the difference between Blue Butterfly Pea flower (powder?) and the flower version?

Safe, Healthy & Convenient in a 10 gram sachet you can bring it anywhere you want to make a cup of tea or any beverage or even to cook with. The Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder is very concentrated – all you need is juat a little that goes a long way.

For the Sundried Flowers you would need to boil in hot water to extract its colour to either cook with or just to make a cup of tea. Remembering that in extremely hot water some the nutrients may be lost.

The powder and flowers will produce a similar result – blue colour – but the powder will reduce the effort and time taken to achieve the desired colour and is concentrated so less is best and you are in control of the blue colour that you want to achieve.

Why can't I just soak the flowers and drink the tea instead of buying Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder?

The powder and flowers will product a similar result – blue colour – but the powder will reduce the effort and time taken to achieve the desired colour and is concentrated so less is best.

Are the flowers washed before they are processed?

Yes. We have a proprietary process that removes any micro organisms. However, the Butterfly Pea flowers has a natural “insect repellent” characteristics that it does not attract pests etc.

Must I always dissolve My Blue Tea before cooking or baking? or can I just sprinkle onto my preparation?

Yes, either way is available to you – it really depends on what you are preparing and how experimental you wish to be. It is best to dissolve a small quantity in tepid or warm to test the amount of Blue that you want and let it rest for 20 minutes as the powder will keep continuing to dissolve.

In making a latte for example the powder is mixed with the milk when frothing and then produces the blue colour before adding to the coffee. For cakes as an example the powder can simply be sprinkled into the mixture.

In Nasi Kerabu, you can sprinkle on the rice after you have washed them and let it rests for 15-20 minutes.

2-3 years not opened in the sachet.
