Hatch, New Mexico


In February we celebrate love and all things spicy 😉 so we are kicking up the heat and featuring our Hatch, New Mexico Red Chile Powder this month. Old Barrel Tea Co. started in New Mexico, so chile has a special place in our hearts, because we put it on literally everything. 

The small town of Hatch, New Mexico is the Chile Capitol of the world and our whole state is proud of this magical and spicy crop.
