You can make your green tea salt blend at your home quite easily. This different yet tasty salt blend could be a very new and amazing experience for you. You can use this pink salt blend in a number of dishes like green tea salt sprinkled French fries, green tea salted popcorn, green tea salt seared scallops and soba noodles tossed with green tea salt. Try it, it would be a fun!!
Ingredients for 4 tablespoons:
- 3 tablespoons loose leaf green tea
- 1 tablespoon Himalayan Pink Salt (coarse)
To make a fine salt blend, place both the pink salt and green tea leaves in a grinder (spice grinder) or your food processor and blend until you get the desired form. If you want a coarse blend (not fine) then use mortar and pestle to grind the both materials manually. Place the salt blend in a clean and well-sealed jar and store in a dry place. The above-mentioned ingredients would be sufficient to fill a small size spice jar.
According to your taste, you can play around with the ratios of ingredients that are mentioned above. Use more green tea if the Himalayan pink salt is strong or adds more salt if green tea is strong. The choice is all yours. Moreover, green teas are available in different types and tastes; try to taste some of them before using in a recipe.
You can even add more spices according to your taste. For example, if you want a real citrusy flavor, then add a few peppercorns. Don’t use too many as the real taste of the green tea salt blend will vanish. Apart from this, you can also make a black tea salt blend using Himalayan pink salt and black tea instead of green tea.
