How did we review this? 

We conducted a taste test using this peri-peri spice mix with French fries.

Aroma + Appearance 

In contrast to the typical peri-peri masala, this spice blend exhibits a darker, subdued red hue. Upon opening the jar, we were greeted by a smoky chili-like aroma, with a lingering aroma of oregano.

Flavor + Potency 

Let’s begin with the chili components of this spice mix, which include Paprika, bird’s eye, and cayenne chilies. Each variety contributes its distinct flavor profile to the blend. The bird’s eye chili imparts an earthy yet fruity chili note, while the smokiness is derived from cayenne.

In terms of seasoning, this blend strikes a well-balanced ratio between spiciness and saltiness, avoiding extremes in both aspects. Unlike a typical peri-peri masala, it lacks a tangy flavor profile.

We admire how the garlic flavor contributes a much-needed warmth and beautifully harmonizes all the elements.

Regarding its intensity/potency, the effect was rather moderate. To sum it up, the combination of chili, oregano, and the mild sweetness at the finish makes this a good peri-peri masala.
