This is a different sort of a post here at Sororitea Sisters. Not only is this a chain location review of sorts it’s also to mention both the Hot & Cold Teas at Tim Hortons. Keep in mind that Tim Hortons locations vary state by state and throughout Canada. Not only are various Hot & Cold Teas available at Tim Hortons some locations have bagged tea, loose leaf teas, and other specialty offerings.
Hot & Cold Teas at Tim Hortons are not my only reason for posting about this topic here today. For today’s Vegan MoFo prompt “Where do you eat when you want someone else to cook for you” I decided to use Hot & Cold Teas at Tim Hortons as a tie-in. Not only does Tim Hortons have VARIOUS Tea Options they have a decent amount of VEGAN Options for quick food, too! If you CLICK HERE you will see which of their foods are VEGAN. I, personally, have a weakness for their bagels with a slice of tomato and Hot & Cold Teas at Tim Hortons depending on the season. Their HOT teas are peppy and strong for bagged and their UnSWEETENED Iced Tea is usually a winner when on the go!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Various Tea Bases

Today I NEED to share with you – Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas! I’m doing a tie-in with VeganMofo on this one because it works PERFECTLY for the “Easy Cook Meal”… ‘something I make when I can’t be bothered to cook much’! Millie’s Savory Teas – also known as – Millie’s Sipping Broth – was INVENTED by a school teacher who needed a better way to snack in between classes!
After double checking the ingredients AND confirming with the company I was able to verify that Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas was VEGAN – therefore – the PERFECT PRODUCT to feature for today! WHY am I so darn excited about Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas? Because MOST Tortilla Soups that are commercial popular have chicken broth or other chicken ingredients in them! NOT Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas! The ingredients include: Green Tea, an organic vegetable blend that contains carrots, onion, and celery, tomato, sea salt, yeast extract, garlic, chipotle, herbs, and spices.
I made a cup of Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas while at work and VERY busy one day not too long ago and I will tell you the more I drank it the more I was addicted to the flavor! I drank it on an empty stomach (well the only thing my stomach had in it was other teas) but I will say I was HUNGRY going into this sipping experience and by the time I was done I was completely satisfied. I’m not making any claims here – just telling you what my stomach experienced!
The flavor of Spicy Tortilla Vegetable Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Teas was out of this world! It WAS spicy, savory, tomato-y, garlic-y, and peppery. I LOVED each of those tastes! I can see myself drinking this often! Is it a SOUP? Is it a TEA? YES. And it is FABULOUS!

OK, this was the tea that got me. I wasn’t going to order more teas from Butiki Teas since they did announce that they were going to close. I was sad to hear of their closing, but I figured that I had enough teas that I need to review that I didn’t really need more tea. That is until I saw “Lime Marshmallow.” How do I pass that up?
Answer: I don’t!
And this is delicious. This cup that I’m drinking at the moment is actually the second time that I’ve had the tea. The first cup was a little less flavorful than this one. I steeped that in my Breville One-Touch and I have often stated that white teas shouldn’t be steeped in the tea maker because the leaves just aren’t conducive to the way the tea maker operates. Or something like that.
I’ve found that when I steep white teas in the Breville, not all of the leaves that I’ve put into the basket get submerged into the water. For a white tea, I recommend using a teapot and allowing the leaves to steep loose, or if you’ve just gotta use an infuser basket, try a Kati Tumbler.
This time when I steeped it, I got my ceramic teapot and I measured out 3 bamboo scoops of leaf into the teapot. Then I poured in water heated to 170°F and let the tea steep for 4 minutes. Now we’re talking some tasty tea!
I tasted it first before adding any sweetener. It’s nice with a bright, vibrant lime flavor. But I didn’t get a lot of creamy, marshmallow-y flavor. So I took Butiki’s advice and added a little bit of turbinado sugar to the cup and now I can taste that “gooey” marshmallow flavor. It tastes sweet and fluffy.
The white tea is a good base for these flavors too. It’s light and has a subtle hay-like flavor. It’s delicate enough for the flavors of lime and marshmallow to emerge fully without it becoming a really cloying taste, and I am still tasting tea. The tea doesn’t hide behind the flavoring.
I’m glad that I placed that order!
