Ocean Breeze

The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Entrée Ocean Breeze is Tealeaves ICON and Executive Chef Tory Martindale’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Relax + Pantone 7459C + Mood: Peaceful.

Notes from Tory Martindale, Executive Chef at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach:


“From conch to rock shrimp, I wanted to feature ocean flavors.”


“This light dish is all about fresh, sweet seafood. From conch to rock shrimp, I wanted to feature ocean flavors. Add in mango, wax apple, girasol and we have a tropical island.”
