This study was conducted to standardize the formulation of Instant Tea Premix and determine the anti-oxidant activity. Different tea formulations (F-I, F-II, F-II) with varying levels of tea solids and masala mix (10-15%) were prepared to evaluate their sensory attributes using 9 point hedonic rating scale. Results revealed that among all the samples, formulation F-II sample (tea solids: masala mix ratio of 3:2) had the overall acceptability score of 8.29±0.32. Further, the optimized formulation also compared with three commercially available tea brands in terms of their phenolic content and antioxidant activity potential. It was found that total phenolic content and % DPPH activity of F-II was highest compared to other samples.
