Savoury tea –a great cold weather pick me up!

72149-20130723 If you are trying to watch your weight or just eat more healthfully Numi Organic Savory Teas are a delicious, comforting pick me up. The Garden Sampler box is a great way to try all the flavours. It contains Tomato Mint, Carrot Curry, Fennel Spice, Spinach Chive, Beet Cabbage and Broccoli Cilantro. Tomato Mint and Carrot Curry are my favourites.  The teas are a tasty combination of veggie flavours and black tea so each serving is packed with anti-oxidants and you get a little caffeine boost. 

Here are a few tips to make them even more satisfying but still keeps them a low calorie (under 50 calories) snack. 

Add to each cup one of these: 

Handful of rinsed bamboo sprouts and a dash of hot sesame oil 

1 large well-rinsed mushroom, thinly sliced 

1 half apple thinly sliced ( good in carrot and beet) 

1 large piece if celery thinly spread with cashew butter
