For once matcha took over Instagram feeds, local coffee shops and trendy restaurants.

Today, however, you might have noticed this vibrant blue smoothies, drinks and desserts all around which owe their bright colour to the "blue matcha" powder.

What is this new thing? Is it better than green matcha? Does it give a stronger kick?

Let's find out.


Green matcha and blue matcha are both ground teas, however are made from two entirely different plants.

Green matcha comes from camilia sinsnus - the tea plant. The material exclusively used for making matcha is a green tea leaf called tencha.

Blue matcha is actually made from blue butterfly pea flowers. The flowers are dried and ground into a fine blue powder and are used for brewing a hot or cold drink.

The essential difference is that blue matcha calms you down, while green matcha hypes you up. Caffeine-free blue matcha is good before sleep. Green is not advised to be consumed before sleeping due to caffeine.

On top of everything, butterfly pea flower contains one strong flavonoid, a type of phytonutrient or chemicals in plants which are used to stay healthy. Fruits such as plums, grapes and blueberries carry these components. Which is why butterfly pea powder may have implications in managing depression, anxiety, and stress.

Blue matcha also has a variety of antioxidants, which may help reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, as well as help collagen production and assist in supporting healthy vision.
