Green Tea Spice Blend

Green Tea Spice Blend

Green tea adds a light earthy note to this spice blend. Overall the blend is slightly sweet, nutty and approachable. Add or omit whatever spice you'd like to make it your own, but this is our favourite!

Chef's Note

  1. Adding flavourful whole food ingredients to salt enhances the overall flavour of the dish and oftentimes, you end up using less salt. This is great for people watching their sodium intake; a little can go a long way!
  2. Make this into a wonderful holiday gift by jarring and labelling.
