  2. Mesclun is available at fancy greengrocers. Of course, you can use your own mix of baby lettuces, such as lamb's lettuce, oak leaf, spinach greens, cress or rocket.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together tea, oil, vinegar and mustard until smooth. Stir in chives and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Toss mesclun with the vinaigrette in a large bowl. Scatter chive blossoms and raspberries over the top and serve.
