Hello my lovelies!
I recently decided to actually start using some of the very different items that I received in a “Conscious Box” before the holidays. I never recorded an unboxing video or wrote a blog about the box because it was just too different for me at the time. However, after taking a second look at the items I received, the contents of the box were actually quite usable and wholesome; but I digress. This post is about Numi Organics Savory Tea.
YES, “savory tea”! Thank goodness I read the label on this adorable tea sample as I was about to enjoy it for breakfast with sugar; yuck! After taking a closer look at the tea, I realized it was meant as a savory snack alternative; therefore, I decided to save it for before my lunch hour.
The sample that I enjoyed was “Fennel Spice”. It is described by Numi Organics as follows:
“Coaxed by the soothing scents of freshly cut fennel, this crisp concoction will transport you to the enchanting European countryside. The soaring flavors of sweet licorice envelope the earthy fullness of celery root while slivers of orange peel and decaf green tea delight the palate.”
YUM!!! I was especially intrigued by this tea because I’ve been on a diet for about two weeks now and thought this would be a perfect “snack” for when I was craving something earthy and salty; without adding a ton of extra calories! Plus, it gives me an additional cup of water – score!
ALL of the ingredients in “Fennel Spice” are organic and as follows:
- Celery Root
- Orange Peel
- Decaf Green Tea
- Black Pepper
Numi Organics offers much more than just savory tea, but since I had never even heard of savory tea before, I was eager to learn more! They offer a total of six flavors:
- Beet Cabbage
- Broccoli Cilantro
- Carrot Curry
- Fennel Spice (the one I tried today)
- Spinach Chive
- Tomato Mint
I enjoyed my first, and definitely not last, cup of Numi Tea before my lunch hour and instantly fell in love. In fact, I already ordered a box of their “Garden Sampler” for $7.99. The Garden Sampler includes 12 bags of their 6 savory tea flavors; 2 of each. I am most excited to try the “Tomato Mint” and “Carrot Curry;” they sound divine!

The moment the bag began to steep, I could smell each ingredient. My office cubicle smells amazing; like I’ve been working in the kitchen for hours over a delectable broth base. I could totally see myself enjoying this before lunch and as a late night snack. I love that the tea contains no caffeine, it is extremely satisfying and tastes delicious!
On the back of my tea sample, Numi provides several examples of when to drink their savory tea:
- As a satisfying snack alternative to hold you over
- As a great compliment to a light lunch
- As a savory way to mix-up your tea routine
- As a comforting cup when you’re under the weather
- As a snack on your next hike or camping trip
- As a delicious brew for cooking rice or noodles
- As a tasty addition to your next cleanse
- As a great companion to keep at your desk or take on the road
Have you ever tried Numi Organic Tea? Would you be tempted to try something as bold as savory tea?
