We work with local chefs to develop our spice recipes and our spices are made by us using local ingredients. A combination of our finest Chinese Bohea and Lapsang Souchong Black Teas. Our Luxury Bohea Souchong has a delicate hint of sweetness and smoky pine that balances the bold smoked flavour of our Lapsang Souchong. Theres a specific regional pine needle that is used in the traditional production of lapsang & bohea originating in the north west corner of the fujian provence. Origin authenticity is key to superior quality. This blend of teas along with a meledy of peppers and sea salt, will add enormous smoki flavouring to your grilled, sautéed, baked meats, seafoods and/or vegetables. Use as a spice rub, BBQ rub or marinade. Due to the nauturally occurring tannins in tea, these rubs act an natural tenderizers. Excellent for succulent juicy dishes. We caution you to only marinade your meats overnight, do not marinade veggies or seafood for longer than a couple hours or the tannins in the tea will turn them to practically mush! Enjoy!
