I have had this rub twice now, both times on ribs and it is so tasty! I commented last night that I don't think I have ever had ribs so delicious. It's such a unique taste. I'm a big tea drinker so this is right up my alley! Can't wait to try it on more things!
I haven't tried tea based rubs in the past but I was very impressed with this one. I put it on a rack of ribs and BBQ'd them. The smoky flavour was unique and overall, it was amazing. I especially enjoy the HINT of salt as compared to most mixed spices I've tried in the past being heavily salted.
My wife called me over to check out one of the stalls at the Waterdown Farmers Market last week Saturday. It was the every nice 3Teas (Terrific Tasting Teas) lady. I drink tea but am more a coffee guy; My two favourite teas are Lapsong Souchong and Earl Grey followed closely by Orange Pekoe.
Well i was asked to smell one of the two tea rubs and as a BBQ enthusiast (owner of a Big Green Egg, Traeger Smoker and a Weber Summit) some might call me over enthusiastic.
I was blown away by the smoky bacon smell of the Smoky Tea Rub. I promised to write a review after using it. The very next day I used it on a skirt steak and I must admit to being very impressed and even better inspired to look at what else i can do with tea and coffee in dry rubs and possible exploring finishing salts as well. Well done 3Teas! Your rub is exceptional and very tasty!
