Butterfly Pea Tea Sourdough

Since 2014

My family had done it for years so it wasn't a stretch to do it on my own and create a new starter.

Characteristics

It's hearty and strong. The tea, while adding health benefits, does not change the flavor of the sourdough. However, it does give it a nice light shade of blue color to the bread.
