Boston Spice The Boston Tea Party Spice Rub

The Boston Tea Party started with the arrival of three shipments of British East India Company tea to Boston. The tax on tea, which had been implemented with the passing of the 1767 Townshend Revenue Act, had to be paid the moment the tea was unloaded from the British ships named the Beaver, the Dartmouth, and the Eleanor. The Sons of Liberty, led by Samuel Adams, were responsible for organizing the Boston Tea Party. On the night of December 16, 1773, 342 crates of East India tea were dumped into Boston Harbor in an act of political protest. Boston Spice likes to toss tea around too, but ours always lands in a spice bowl. "The Boston Tea Party" spice blend is our tribute to this pivotal event. The only way ours goes overboard is with flavor. We combine Lapsang Souchong smoked tea (Souchong was a tea destroyed that night), ancho chili powder, our 7 spice blend, and some garlic powder, along with other spices to create this flavorful mix. It’s great on steaks, chops, ribs, chicken, and veggies. Toss your mouth some great tasting food with Boston Spices original “The Boston Tea Party” spice blend.

For many years, the protest of British tea being tossed overboard in Boston harbor was known as “The Destruction of the Tea”. The earliest reference of the act being called “The Boston Tea Party” didn’t appear until 1826. Three months after the original “Boston Tea Party” of December 16, 1773, 60 men again, sent tea into the sea. They boarded the Fortune in March 1774 and threw 30 chests overboard.

Ingredients: salt, lapsang souchong tea, ancho chili, onion, garlic, black pepper, Szechuan peppercorns, spices, cloves, ginger, star anise. *rice powder added to reduce caking
