The Clitoria ternatea plant, also referred to as the butterfly-pea, blue-pea, Aprajita, Cordofan pea or Asian pigeonwings, is a plant from the Fabaceae family and is commonly found throughout South East Asia. 

The bright blue petals from the flowers of the butterfly-pea plant have been used as an ingredient in herbal tea drinks throughout the region for centuries as well as used in cooking.

The blue flower imparts its blue color when steeped in warm or hot water, leading it to being used as a dye, as well as to add color to various foods such as the rice dish Nasi kerabu.
