Whew! It has been forever and a day since I last posted here. I took on more duties at work and have returned home each evening too drained to even contemplate posting on the blog. Also, since the season changed I haven’t really had much of an appetite. I have either eaten things I already blogged about or I had vegan pizzas and Chinese take-out.
In the meantime let me share this review with you. I have really enjoyed these Numi Garden Sampler Savory Teas. You wouldn’t think tea flavors like broccoli cilantro, tomato mint, and carrot curry would be tasty as a tea but you are wrong. They are delicious. Click here to read the review.
I was kind of expecting these teas to taste like broths or bouillon, so I was fully prepared to be turned off by these teas. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised because they are not at all like drinking hot soup in a tea cup. The flavors though subtle and light are refreshing. They are perfect for first thing in the morning when you want to have something light but flavorful in your stomach.
I bought these teas because I was trying to break my sugar habit. I love morning tea with soy creamer and sugar but I felt that it probably was not the healthiest morning option. In an attempt to curb my sugar intake, I turned to these teas instead. My favorite flavors are the tomato mint, spinach chive, and the broccoli cilantro.
The tomato mint is almost like drinking infused water. The black tea is very light and there is just a hint of a tomato taste followed by spice, an almost undetectable onion flavor and a touch of mint.
The spinach chive is a light green tea in which you can barely taste the spinach but the chive presence is a little bit stronger. It is reminiscent of the chive flavor on potato chips.
The fennel spice has a sort of licorice and herbal medicinal flavor. It isn’t my favorite but drinking it gives me the impression that it is good for the digestion.
The broccoli cilantro is a green tea with a definite broccoli flavor that isn’t overwhelming.
The carrot curry is also a green tea. The flavors are very complimentary in this tea. However, you taste the carrot more than the curry.
The beet cabbage tea is a black tea with a beautiful red color similar to hibiscus tea. I admit I am not a huge fan of beets. So this tea didn’t exactly win me over. I found it similar to having borscht.
Over all I really enjoyed this tea sampler and I would definitely by it again. In fact, I plan to use these teas soon when I do my juice cleanse. I think it would be the perfect supplement to the juices, when the hunger pangs hit during the fast.
I hope that you also try the garden sampler and share your favorite flavors with me.
