allspice – The Year of Tea

Episode 157: Tomato Mint

Numi Organic Tea has a line of savory teas in a number of different vegetable flavors. I picked up a sampler box, and this was the luck of the draw — Tomato Mint. The ingredients sound like they would make a really nice soup — tomato, mint, cinammon, lemon peel, onion, and allspice.

I’ll just be blunt — I hate this…for drinking as a tea. It’s soup! Well, it’s more of a fat-free vegetable consomm√©. There is tea in here — decaf black tea — but you really don’t taste it at all. I would love to see this as a loose leaf blend with some lapsang souchong to add a bit of a smoky aroma and finish. Overall, it’s not bad, but it’s very one note.

Episode 206: Rooibos Chai

One thing I love about rooibos is how well it takes on other flavors. But will that carry over to a bagged tea? Let’s give Numi Organic Tea’s Rooibos Chai a shot and see!

I gotta say — this has some complex flavor for a bagged tea! Strong notes of clove and ginger with a nice light finish of cinnamon and allspice. Because rooibos is used as the base, it tastes a bit lighter than your average chai, which means it would really be good iced. I’ll have to get some more of this!

Episode 286: Broccoli Cilantro

Next up in Numi Organic Tea’s savory tea line is this broccoli cilantro blend. Together, these two might not sound that tasty, but Numi has added a number of spices to the mix (turmeric, sage, black pepper, garlic) along with green tea to really round out the flavor.

This particular blend definitely tastes like a fancy vegetable broth. The turmeric gives this blend a slightly dry aftertaste. It’s not the best out of their line, but it’s not the worst either.
