What is Blue Matcha?

Blue matcha powder is a unique and vibrant ingredient that is rapidly gaining popularity in the health and wellness world. Unlike traditional green matcha, which is made from ground green tea leaves, blue matcha is made from dried butterfly pea flowers. This vibrant blue powder is rich in antioxidants and has been linked to a wide range of health benefits, including improved brain function, reduced anxiety, and lower inflammation levels.


Beyond its potential health benefits, blue matcha is also a stunning addition to a variety of dishes, adding a pop of color to smoothie bowls, lattes, and baked goods. Whether you're looking to boost your health or simply add a touch of visual flair to your meals, blue matcha powder is a versatile and exciting ingredient to try.

Buyers Beware!

When purchasing your blue matcha - it's important to check the ingredients to see if you're purchasing matcha with added butterfly pea powder, or pure butterfly pea flower powder. Blue matcha shares names with green matcha, but blue matcha is actually made from blue butterfly pea flowers (no matcha). Unlike green matcha which contains 60+ mg of caffeine per cup, blue matcha made from pure butterfly pea powder has no caffeine at all.

To make our blue matcha, we add 100% pure butterfly pea flower to organic matcha. The result is an unbelievable blue color. Eye catching and delicious, the flavor is greatly enhanced with just a touch of your favorite sweetener. It can be whisked, blended or frothed in milk to fully dissolve the blue matcha tea just like any other matcha.

Is Blue Matcha Good For You?

When you purchase butterfly blue matcha made with organic matcha powder, you're getting all the health benefits of matcha. In addition, you get the benefits of butterfly blue flower powder.


One of the main benefits of blue matcha powder is its high antioxidant content, which can help to protect the body from harmful free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Other potential benefits of blue matcha powder include improved cognitive function, reduced stress and anxiety, and enhanced skin health. Whether you're looking to boost your antioxidant intake or simply incorporate a unique ingredient to your diet, blue matcha powder is definitely worth considering.
