I'm a huge fan of fine blended teas; these blended teas can be used in many recipes. I was tagged on Facebook (Bangalore foodies club to create a recipe using tea) therefore I created this patriotic tricolor salad with mint jubilee tea dressing 😀😋

This one of tea box's signature blends that's both delicious and fragrant. It features locally sourced spearmint, fennel seeds and marigold petals that have been expertly blended with a high-grown green tea to produce a cup that's thoroughly refreshing.
Uplifting notes of mint and fennel
The liquor is vibrant and immensely fresh tasting. A dominant note of mint persists throughout the length of the cup, enhanced momentarily, by the sweetness of fennel seeds. The tea is smooth with mellow vegetal flavors discernible in the undertone that complement the fresh notes perfectly.
Best enjoyed with lightly flavored foods like steamed seafood and soft cheeses.
