Smoked Tea Rub
Combining the dense sweetness of molasses with the smoky depth of lapsang souchong tea, our Smoked Tea Rub is not for the faint of heart. Mediterranean herbs like fennel and rosemary lighten the burden of this rub, but the deeply flavorful ground tea leaves, combined with molasses and black pepper, give this rub a formidable presence that lingers, mingling with the salt and flirting with the slight crunch of sesame seeds. This rub is great for hearty meats; use on a roasted pork loin or on oven-baked ribs. Toss with sirloin and sear for a beef-and-broccoli stir fry. Rub on duck or dark-meat game birds, like quail or pheasant.
Hand blended from granulated molasses, sea salt, Lapsong Souchong tea, demerara sugar, sesame seeds, paprika, garlic, black pepper, fennel, rosemary and marjoram.
Flavor Profile A rich deep sweetness with strong but not overpowering smokiness and subtle herby notes
