Out with the green and in with the blue


Move over, traditional green tea and matcha! There's a new, exotic, and captivating beverage making waves in the world of wellness and food: Kwush Blue containing blue matcha. While blue matcha may sound like a mystical elixir from a fantasy novel, it's a real and remarkable addition to the world of superfoods. In this blog, we'll explore its origins, health benefits, and how you can incorporate it into your daily routine.

The Origins of Blue Matcha

Blue matcha, also known as butterfly pea flower tea, is made from the dried flowers of the Clitoria ternatea plant, which is native to Southeast Asia. The tea gets its name from the striking blue hue it imparts, and it's been used traditionally in various cultures for centuries, mainly for its vibrant color and potential health benefits.

Health Benefits of Blue Matcha

  1. Rich in Antioxidants: Just like its green counterpart, blue matcha is a potent source of antioxidants. These antioxidants help combat free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to various health issues, including aging and chronic diseases.

  2. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Blue matcha has shown promise as an anti-inflammatory agent. The compounds found in butterfly pea flower tea may help reduce inflammation, potentially benefiting conditions like arthritis and other inflammatory disorders.

  3. Supports Brain Health: Some studies suggest that blue matcha may have a positive impact on brain health. The antioxidants in the tea could help protect brain cells and improve cognitive function.

  4. Aids Digestion: Blue matcha has been used traditionally to promote healthy digestion. It can help soothe the digestive system and alleviate gastrointestinal discomfort.

  5. Potential Weight Management: The tea is caffeine-free and may assist in weight management by increasing feelings of fullness and reducing appetite.

  6. Beautiful Skin: Drinking blue matcha may contribute to healthier, radiant skin due to its antioxidant content and potential anti-aging properties.

How to incorporate Kwush blue into your diet

Kwush blue contains both ashwagandha and blue matcha, both of which are great to incorporate into your diet. Tiega, the founder, loves to have the blue super latte as her afternoon drink. She has two cups of coffee in the morning but then really craves something comforting and uplifting in the afternoon. She has also found it prevents her getting the caffeine jitters that she'd normally get if she were to have a third coffee and allows to finish her day on stable energy. 


Blue matcha, with its mesmerizing blue color and potential health benefits, is a great addition to the world of superfoods and cuisine in general. Whether you're a a health-conscious individual, or an adventurous foodie, blue matcha offers a wide range of applications and benefits.
