We all know that there are three basic types of tea: black, green/white and oolong. Things are about to change, because the luxury tea brand Tea Forté is launching an exciting new concept in tea: BLEU. Sustainably sourced, all-natural Butterfly Pea flowers give each infusion its striking blue steep – a visual representation of the plant’s reputed immune-boosting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
Native to Southeast Asia, Butterfly Pea is a perennial that grows in tropical and temperate climates, flourishing in monsoon season. Traditionally, it has been used to restore vitality, soothe nerves and revitalize the skin from the inside out. Loved for its delicate, earthy flavor, and of course, its incomparable blue hue. Each of the five BLEU collection’s naturally caffeine-free herbal blends is a result of Tea Forté’s in-house artisan tea blender’s expert integration of fruits and flowers. The result is balanced and fantastically unique taste.
BLEU is available in our Presentation Box, Petite Presentation Box, Single Steeps Sampler, KATI Steeping Cup &Infuser Set, and Loose-Leaf Tea Canister for each of the five blends. The presentation box ($34) includes 20 infusers, four of each blend: Bleu Blossom, Bleu Blush, Bleu Ginger, Bleu Hibiscus, and Bleu Mint. The Petite Presentation Box ($22) is made of ten infusers, two of each blend: Bleu Blossom, Bleu Blush, Bleu Ginger, Bleu Hibiscus, and Bleu Mint.
