I tried this last night. I bought it has part of the savory tea collection.

I love broccoli and I love cilantro. This was the first one of the box that I wanted to try as I truly enjoy the combination in other items.

This tastes like a savory soup! I can’t believe how good it is! This would be great with a light lunch or as something to hold you over until dinner.

What a yummy surprise. I have never tasted anything quite like it!

Bonnie

Sounds like soup.

Ellyn

It really is delicious!

KeenTeaThyme

This sounds really interesting! I’m of the “cilantro tastes like metal to me” camp, but I do so love broccoli…even as a kid. ;)

Ellyn

I think the cilantro is not as obvious in this one and the broccoli is MUCH more prominent. The Numi savory tea collection is just so interesting and different I couldn’t resist buying the box with the variety savory pack.

TastyBrew

i saw that in the store the other day. i’ll grab it next time. sounds good!

Ysaurella

incredible flavors for a tea…but we need to be curious

Kittenna

Oh yuck. :P

Tamm

I am also a person who can’t do the whole cilantro thing; but this is probably one of the more far-out teas I’ve heard of.

Okay, finally one that isn’t from the Tea & Cards box. I’ve been eying the garden sampler of these for a while and finally sprung for it: I like vegetable teas as a rule and these look so interesting. I’m having a little before-bed snack and thought this would go well with it. (It does, for the record: spiced goat cheese and pretzels.) This smells so good! It’s like soup, in the best possible way. I want to eat the bag but I think I’ll hold off for now.

I expected this to steep up green, but it’s actually orange! It smells a little spicy brewed up, too. Maybe that’s the turmeric coming through? It tastes like soup, too! Good soup, of course, and without all the salt. It would be fun to try and cook with this as a soup base or seasoning, but I also like drinking it.

ETA: The blend of spices in this leaves the effect of salt on my tongue even though there’s none in this cup. How interesting!

The teabag has a very strong aroma of dried soup mix or cubed bouillon – or… seasoning salt.

The liquor is reminiscent of consommé of some sort. I smell tomato, spinach, maybe celery? It’s like hot V8 and I’m afraid to try it.

Wow. It’s the liquid left after you’ve boiled broccoli. I don’t taste cilantro.

I don’t know what to say. Sell it as a broth to be used as a noodle soup base but I just can’t drink it straight as tea. Somewhere, I imagine Numi board members laughing and saying, “I told you, people will drink anything!”

Ramen, anyone?

Numi’s savory options are not nearly as good as Millie’s Savory Teas, but unlike Millie’s they are decaf which makes them a great option for a midnight snacking.
This one tastes like… broccoli! With a hint of cilantro. No surprises there. There’s also some garlic and onion swimming around in there. I find it a bit wimpy but it can be greatly improved with the addition of some garlic pepper. Overall not bad, and the convenience factor of having teabag snacks laying around make it well worth a re-purchase.

Yay, last tea of the evening here. The bag itself smells strongly of celery salt and garlic, which I didn’t expect. I brewed it for 10 minutes in boiling water, as per the package directions.

Brewed, it smells like broccoli, celery salt, and onion salt. Like a nice vegetable broth! :) The flavor is quite good too. The broccoli is definitely the base of this tea, and the cilantro pops out and says halloo! It has a nice little herbaceous, spicy kick. I can definitely taste the celery and onion salt as well in here, especially near the end. This one would probably be quite good with a bit of salt added, but I’m enjoying it plain right now. A lovely bedtime tea!

TeaBrat

what’s in it, soup? :)

That sounds like it would be soothing. I like spice as well and that comment made me think Of the conversation I had with one of the chefs when I was in isolation on the cruise ship. My manager kept on forgetting to order me food ( which was supposed to be her responsibility while one of her team was sick) so the nurse would direct me to call room service. The first day I asked for consommé and the chef kept on trying to talk me out of it because he couldn’t imagine wanting spicy food when sick. When I’m sick that’s all I crave.

Mandy

Actually customer service told me that there’s no added salt (: I guess just powdered onion and powdered celery. But yes, it’s great with a dash of salt. This one is my favorite, and the one I get from amazon subscribe ad save since I used it in cooking so much.

Apt: yeah you could just eat broccoli but what broccoli can you store in the cabinet for a month? And most broth has a whole crap ton of sodium, especially instant kinds.

Cameron B.

Mandy, I think I like the Carrot Curry best so far. :D But I still have three more to try!

yyz, it’s mostly the celery and onion powder but this one also has garlic and pepper in it. :D

TeaBrat

Cameron, did you get the sampler pack? I should look for it!

Cameron B.

TeaBrat, yes I did. It got it on Amazon. :P

The boyfriend and it went out to dinner tonight, so I had a cup of this around 6 to hold me over till he got of work at 8. I noticed how swollen the bag gets (and maybe I’m having too much fun with loose leaf teas), so I ripped the bag open and steeped it in my French press to allow plenty of room for the broccoli to expand. After steeping I added in a little bit of chicken broth base stuff (the liquidy type you keep in a fridge) to instead of plain salt. While it masked any remaining tea flavor that might have been left, it made for a delicious broth soup that really did satisfy me. This tea is so tasty and fun with so many possibilities.

The dry package smells green, but not necessarily like broccoli. It does smell a bit like freeze-dried veggies of some sort. I definitely get a parsley-like vegetable, and onion, a little pepper, and celery.

Once the water hits, though? Mmmm, broccoli.

This one has more garlic and onion-y flavor than some of the others, and a definite brocolli vegginess to it. There’s a little bit of cilantro zip in the front of the sip and then in the aftertaste, but the flavor itself it really muted.

I’m seriously enamored with how different these are.
