We’re always looking for a different kind of flavor profile when it comes to creating a new blend. Now, while I tend to gravitate towards sweet heat inspired blends, sometimes I’m in the mood for something a bit more savory and unexpected. I knew when we received our Dried Tangerine Peel and I had my first taste that it was destined to make its way into a new rub.
With the tangerine being a bit sweet, I wanted something to compliment this light flavor. With the success of our Smoked Tea Rub, I decided to give another tea an opportunity to play a starring role in a spice blend; and Hibiscus proved to be the ideal partner. Another recently added ingredient that caught my attention was the flavorful mild heat of our New Mexico Sandia Chile Powder.
It starts off a bit tart and citrusy and then you’ll pick up some floral notes, finally finishing with just a little bit of heat hitting the back of your throat.
This is definitely NOT considered a spicy hot rub.
Ingredients: hibiscus tea, tangerine peel, garlic, Sandia chile powder, coriander, black pepper, ginger and cumin.
