This might be old news to some of you, but I have never heard of using tea in a rub. The recipe says "does wonders for lighter protein like chicken and fish. Slow-cooking in liquid allows the tea to "steep", which brings out its subtle flavor". Sounds intriguing to me.

Citrus Herbal Tea Rub
makes about 4 cups

1 cup green tea leaves
1/2 cup dried peppermint, spearmint, or mint
1 cup lemongrass powder or flakes
2 TB sea salt or kosher salt
2 TB turbinado sugar or raw sugar
1/2 cup dried orange zest, crushed
1/2 cup dried lime zest
1/4 cup dried lemon zest
1/4 cup ground ginger

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Last 3 weeks, refrigerated
