Yet, at the same time, the end product must be tasteful and appeal to the customer on the move. Blue Tea India brings a whole new perspective to the drink menus at QSRs, with their new and unique purple tea. By adding such fine blends of tea to regular drinks on-the-go, Blue Tea is redefining the quality of QSR drinks.

The natural indigo tint of the flower adds a vivid blue colour to the tea. The colour may vary depending upon the steeping time. Accordingly, it helps to create colour variations in the final drink. These sundried flowers are then blended with ginger and lemon for a subtle piquant flavour.
