In Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine (TAM), the pigeon wing flowers have been used for centuries as a medicine to improve cognitive function. The flower contains acetylcholine which has nootropic properties. Nootropic helps boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence, and motivation.
Acetylcholine decreases with age, which can cause loss of memory. Consumption of Pigeon Wing Flower can reverse this process and help boost your brainpower, as it contains high levels of acetylcholine. It can help you to remember things better, to think more clearly, be more attentive and manage things better. Although you can buy drugs for cognitive enhancing, we whole heartedly believe, the natural kinds are better.
Naturally high in anxioxidiants and anthocyanins, (the same kind as found in blueberries) it can help to reduce the presense of harmful free radicals and promote cellular health. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties. Good to be enjoyed on its mixed with water or milk of your choice.
To be whisked and made like any other matcha. Place approx. 1-2 scoops of matcha in your bowl, then wet with 15ml of max 70ºC water or milk. Thoroughly knead mixture using bamboo whisk until smooth paste forms. Add remaining 70ml of water or your choice of heated milk and mix until consistent. Optional: Add honey or sugar for enhancing flavour.

The Pigeon Wing Flower
Also known as, Clitoria Ternatea, Asian Pigeon Wings, Bluebellvine, Blue pea, Cordofan Pea, and Darwin pea. A girl has many names… We appropriately named her Fujian Pigeon Wing on the occasion of celebrating Fujian Matcha (she is made in Fujian with flowers from Yunnan). She smells divine like tropical flowers (because she is one) and boasts so many health benefits that it would be a shame not to introduce her to your teacup.
