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.

Here’s the scoop!
