It’s time to break up with Starbucks (ok, you can pick those jaws up off the ground now). We know it’s easier said than done, but our friends over at Numi Tea promise that they’re only looking out for your best interests when they say it’s time to kick your two-cups-a-day habit. They won’t ask you to give up your caffeine, because let’s face it, that’s just silly. But they do want you to save a little money by substituting your daily coffee fix for a pipping hot cup of delicious (and equally caffeinated) tea.

Now before you start swearing your allegiances to the coffee vs. tea camps, meet the newest addition to the hot beverage scene from the tea fanatics at Numi Tea. We can already hear the kettles boiling with anticipation for Numi’s new Savory Teas, made from real organic vegetables.


Vegetable tea? We know the concept sounds bizarre, but their Savory Teas have already received lots of attention. They’ve rolled out six flavors in their new line: Tomato Mint, Carrot Curry, Fennel Spice, Spinach Chive, Beet Cabbage and Broccoli Cilantro. But before you go thinking you’re going to have to buy a box of each, Numi proudly packaged each of their six flavors into their ingenius Garden Sampler box.

The Garden Sampler box contains two bags of each new Savory Tea flavor. We’ve already heard very good things about the Tomato Mint and Fennel Spice, but they all sound good!

Numi teas are 100% organic, and are never flavored with perfumes or other fragrances. Each tea is made with full-leaf blends mixed with real fruit, vegetables, herbs, and spices, so it tastes good and chock full of good stuff.

The Numi Garden Sampler retails for $7.99 for a box of 12 tea bags. This is the kind of tea that you can enjoy with dinner, after dinner, or anytime in between. So put the kettle on and enjoy the very best flavors your garden has to offer.

Have you sipped these new savory teas? Which one sounds the most appealing?
