Thai Lemongrass from Millie’s Savory Teas . . . .

Fun fact: I drink a lot of broth. (Not as much as tea, of course, but it’s up there.)

I find it helps ease the symptoms of some less-than-savory health stuff, but it also just makes me feel all good and nourished health-supported and… WELL. You know?

Which is one of the reasons I was so pumped to see this Thai Lemongrass sipping broth from Millie’s Savory Teas in my sample stash. I’ve been hearing about some of the other sisters sipping Millie’s for a while now, and I’ve been dying to give it a shot. This one was right up my alley!

Now, a quick note: I’m not saying that these are a replacement for my actual, made-from-bones broth. There’s no collagen or beneficial fats or any of the other things I get from actual broth, however– it tastes DELIGHTFUL, is a wonderful substitute for tea when I’m looking for something savory, and has been an awesome addition to my office snack-drawer. Mid-morning hungries usually get me real good, and I’ve been finding that a cup of this is the perfect replacement for my usual nuts or dried fruit, sans calories. Mmm.

As for taste? It tastes, well, like broth! Specifically, like the onion-y, celery-y chicken stock my mom used to simmer on the stove all day. I’m not necessarily getting Thai flavors from this one (the celery-saltiness is what’s most prominent for me), but I adore it nonetheless, and have been finding myself craving a cup of this unusual brew in the mornings. I’ll definitely be ordering a stock for myself to have on hand!

Tomato Basil-Green Tea Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Tea

Millie’s Savory Teas offers a unique type of tea- a savory one.  I’ve tried their Spicy Tortilla and Thai Lemongrass offers so I had high hopes and expectations of this one.

Instead of creating sweet or more main stream teas, Millie’s Savory Teas has created a line of teas that offers more of a green tea broth mix. Each flavor has a robust veggie overall feel with the complimentary spices creating a delightful savory experience.

Right off the bat, I was impressed with how this tea smelled.  I could really smell a familiar tomato soup like freshness.   Brewed up with freshly prepped water at 190F and allowed to steep for 4 minutes, this tea was absolutely calling my name.

First sip in and this tea screams tomato. Like fresh tangy tomato soup with a spice filled finish. Not like spicy hot but a nice dose of salt, possibly oregano, garlic and basil.  The first sip of this tea I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to finish the cuppa. The fresh tomato flavor is good, but it isn’t selling me on this blend. But the more I drank of this concoction, the more I’m finding that as the tea cools, the flavor of the tomato really starts to subtle and starts to deliver a more well balanced tomato and spice flavor.

This is my third offering of Millie’s Savory Teas that I have and in each offering I’ve found that the green tea provides more of a mouth feel and buttery silkiness than a flavor. I have two more flavors to try-Curry Spice and Delightful Pho- out of my Five Flavor Snack pack that I bought last week. I’ll be curious to see if that remains true for those blends as well.

All in all, I did enjoy this tea/broth. Maybe not as much as the Spicy Tortilla or Thai Lemongrass. My one recommendation is to allow this tea to settle and cool- that is where I found this tea really started to deliver on that Tomato Basil flavor.

Thai Lemongrass- A Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas. . .

Today is one of those days where I have to fast because of a medical test I’m having done tomorrow. So when I found out I was going to have this test, I instantly went to Millie’s Savory Teas site and bought 3 of their 5 Flavor Snack packs. Since my fasting will be over 24 hours, I knew that I would need something more than chicken broth to keep me in check.

So let me break this sipping broth down a bit.  This sipping broth has a range of different seasonings and spices along with green tea. Basically what they have created is a savory green tea which I am all about. I had their Spicy Tortilla flavor a few months ago so I was more than ready to try their other flavors.

In the 5 Flavor Snack Pack, you receive 3 broth bags of a variety of their flavors.  The ones I received are Thai Lemongrass, Delight Pho, Spicy Tortilla, and Tomato Basil.  They all sounded amazing but the Thai Lemongrass grabbed my attention first.

The aromas that emit from the broth bag are mouth watering. The only comparison that comes to mind is the spice packaging you find in ramen noodles. That may sound like a dig, but it really isn’t. I adore that intense spice smell. And to be honest, the spice package is my favorite part of ramen soup. I’ve even been known to use the mix in my homemade chicken noodle soup.

I prepped my water around 190F and poured the water into my cup with 1 broth bag. Again, those familiar mouth watering aromas just making me happy. I allowed the bag to steep for a tad longer than the recommendation said mainly because I was multi-tasking and didn’t hear my alarm go off.

Before gulping this tea down because I’m several hours into my fasting by now, I did allow the tea to settle and cool for close to 3 minutes. First sip in and my tastebuds were in savory heaven.

This tea delivers on a thai lemongrass savory tea flavor. I can’t say that I’m picking up a distinct green tea flavor but I am definitely picking up the overall green tea buttery feel. The Thai Lemongrass flavors are quite nice and well balanced.  Not to spicy and there is a gentle citrus twist towards the end of the sip that elevates the flavor.   What I’m really enjoying is this melody of vegetables-I’m thinking carrot, celery, and onion- that really drive home the savory portion of the tea.

The more this tea cools, the spicier the notes are becoming, which I’m loving.  All in all, this tea is incredibly comforting and I could honestly say this would be a great savory treat for the afternoons or if you aren’t able to get to your lunch, a great way to tide you over until you have time to eat.

I couldn’t ask for a better tea to fast with. My cup is empty and I’m ready for more.  I’m excited to try the rest of the blends now. Thank you Millie’s Savory Teas for making my fasting a bit more bearable.

Delight Pho from Millie’s Savory Teas #VeganMoFo2016

Fusion Food is the prompt for today’s Vegan MoFo topic. So what better way to chat about fusion foods than a savory green tea!

Delight Pho from Millies Savory Teas is also known by Delight Pho Vegetable Sipping Broth. They aren’t currently on the stores website but I wanted to mention these single-serve steepables which are known to many as comfort food in a broth (which is also trademarked by Millies).

Delight Pho from Millies Savory Teas – as is all of the sipping broths – was the brainchild of a school teacher who was looking for something healthy to sip on while busy during the school day. This flavor is gluten-free and vegan! The ingredients include an organic vegetable blend of carrots, celery, and onion. I could taste the onion first and foremost followed by the celery and then the carrot. There was also a nice amount of garlic in this. There was sea salt, too. Basil was there but not prominent yet appreciated. Another loud shout of an ingredient was the spicy red peppers and spices which were a nice wake up that is for sure! How is this a tea you might ask? Because Delight Pho from Millies Savory Teas also contains green tea!

The flavor was much like a Spring Onion and Garlic broth I like from a local health food store. It was a bit salty but only contained 280mg of sodium which isn’t bad at all. I didn’t really have anything for lunch one day while at work and didn’t want to go out and try and find something to spend money on so this worked out perfectly. I added the bag to my cup and added hot water to my cup and there you have it! It was spicy, savory, herbally, and had that comforting flavor combo of carrots, celery, onion, and garlic!

I liked Delight Pho from Millies Savory Teas but I do adore Millie’s Spicy Tortilla, too, but so far this is my second favorite of their flavors! I can’t wait to try more of them!
