Have you all seen this beautiful blue tea all over the internet? I exaggerate, but it is definitely everywhere on the instagram map! In my mind, it had got to be something truly exotic, imported and awfully expensive, till I decided to dig a little deeper ( believe me, I didn’t have to go far!). And ladies and gentlemen, this is my grand discovery – Clitoria ternatea, also known as Aparajita, Butterfly pea, Asian pigeonwings or Blue pea , is a flowering plant that bears white and blue flowers. It’s a commonly growing creeper in India ( and in some South East Asian countries) in our gardens and in the wild too!! Its been right here all my life and I just noticed, oh well, better late than never! 🙂
I really don’t know what came upon me when I insisted that our house needs a paint job and some renovations. Now we are in the thick of things and there is dust, paint, buckets, brushes, mops all over! This is also the birthday week here; both kids birthdays back to back. Daughter’s extra classes, son’s busy social calendar, my work…..whew!!! No, not easy….but the thought of freshly painted clean walls, refurbished couches alone makes me happy. 🙂 No matter how busy things get around here, theres always time to make one of my favorite meals – Red Rice & Mango Salad w/ Sriracha Vinaigrette!
