Picking pea flowers in the morning
For our garden, we grow butterfly pea flowers 100% free, that is, not chemical fertilizers or any chemicals at all and the mission to collect pea flowers, we will do early in the morning. The first thing is to spray the inflorescence with water while it is still in bloom. For the initial cleaning before picking fresh flowers in the morning and must be done before sunrise, otherwise the flowers will not wither. Before going into the oven will make a bouquet and beautiful colors
After the flowers have dried enough to drain. I immediately put it in the oven. But the method of baking butterfly pea flower tea must use a temperature that does not exceed 40-45 degrees because the flower baking is different from the general tea baking. By baking at a constant temperature like this, it takes about 4-5 hours. The tea flowers will be beautiful, dry and fragrant and retains the fragrance for a long time. The whole time of brewing will not get any musty odor as well.
