The Boston Tea Party - Barbecue Rub
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.
Boston Spice likes to toss tea around too, but ours always lands in a spice bowl. The only way ours goes overboard is with flavor. Our own “The Boston Tea Party” spice blend is perfect for that special meal. We combine classic Lapsang Souchong Smoked Tea (one of the teas destroyed during original tea party), chili powder, our 7 spice blend, and some garlic powder together, along with other spices to create this flavorful blend. 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.
Ingredients: salt, lapsang souchong tea, ancho chili, onion, garlic, spices, black pepper *rice powder added to help reduce caking
