Bartending is one of the most interactive aspects of the culinary world. Every drink concocted by a bartender speaks of their creative skills and reflects their personality. So, when you sit at a bar with a colourful cocktail, you are most likely unaware of what innovation goes behind it unless you see a bartender in action.
Every bartender takes the pleasure of playing around with an array of liquors and liqueurs, blending them with juices and syrups to create a unique drink every time. However, most of these mixers are high in sugar and loaded with artificial ingredients and colours. Like grenadine, for example, though is a syrup made from pomegranate, still contains artificial red colour. Same goes for green apple, blueberry, and similar other syrups.

Now, when a mixologist lands on a completely natural substitute for his favourite mixers, you can expect nothing less than the best of cocktails in town. With Blue Tea India’s range of finest organic teas, bartenders have a newfound additive to experiment within their new recipes .
Each of these teas is made with the finest herbs like butterfly pea flower and Egyptian hibiscus. The flowers are organically grown, handpicked and sundried to retain their core flavour and give the most natural colour to any food or drink. They are then blended with herbs like lemon, ginger, and spices to give a subtle zesty touch to the drink.

Successfully experimenting with Blue Tea India’s tea blends, some of the best bartenders and mixologists of the country are conjuring up the most eclectic mixes of drinks and baffling their patrons.
