Millie's Savory Tea Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, I posted about my newfound love for savory tea. I discovered Millie's Savory Teas — green tea combined with veggies, herbs, and spices in a tea bag — at Seattle VegFest in March. And then I immediately ordered the Five Flavor Snack Pack from their website when I returned home.


This stuff is great for when you're between meals and just can't justify eating another snack. Since I work at a desk all day, I tend to want something to drink or nibble on throughout the day, and this stuff keeps me from eating too many nuts, crackers, or other higher calorie snacks.

And it comes in great flavors! There's curry-infused Indian Spice, tangy Tomato Basil, Mexican-inspired Spicy Tortilla, crisp Thai Lemongrass, and Smoky Facon (vegan bacon flavor!). After I posted my review in April, the makers of Millie's Savory Tea asked me if I'd like to host a giveaway for my readers. And of course I said yes!


They want to give way five 15-tea snack packs. Leave a comment here letting me know your favorite afternoon pick-me-up. I'll randomly choose five winners on Monday! Be sure to include your email address (unless you know I have another way to contact you, like through your blog or Blogger profile). Also, I'd like to keep the giveaway in the U.S. only since Millie's will mailing out the teas.

I've been enjoying grape tomatoes, cucumbers and basil drizzled with high quality balsamic. I drink tea all day and would love to try some savory!

On the off chance you are posting outside the US, my favourite afternoon pick me up, especially during the colder months, is a bowl of hot oats. At work during winter everyone knows that about 4pm is oat o'clock on the Susan clock.

Oh my gosh! After reading your review I am so excited for this giveaway! Besides tea, I have also been known to take afternoon dark chocolate breaks :-)

Soup is my go to this winter was horrific it was in the negative for weeks at a time it even snowed today (may 15th.. oi) so I found myself having soup for breakfast most days and again in the after noon, some days I had a couple pots in my fridge and it was a all day soup-a-thon. So these teas sound amazing to me I actually planned to play around and see if I couldn't make my own using dehydrated veggies from the garden.

Ioniun said...

These look delicious! I recently tried a Spicy Fennel tea and a Tomato Mint tea. I'd love to try these!

I am not a snacker and usually only eat once a day for a meal. I just don't get hungry much. But a hot cup of tea or even iced tea is my go to always thing. If I feel the need for a snack, I usually stick a spoon in a jar of peanut butter and let it stick to the roof of my mouth.

Tamara said...

I like to come home and have a pb and j or toast.

We have a dining room at work where i eat a full(vegan) lunch, with a fruity option for dessert, so i usually just grab an apple, banana or clementine and eat it later, but i cannot resist that savoury, ring-shaped cookie when a bag of them cracks open...

Annabella said...

I've enjoying some Chai tea latte or some iced coffee lately.

Sophie said...

Oh great giveaway!! My favourite snack is homemade soy yogurt with homemade granola and some apple preserves I made in the fall (but now I am out :( ).

Kat Bell said...

A quick bowl of miso soup is my go-to snack, usually with a cup of hot ginger tea, if I feel like being good. Otherwise, it's a couple of spoonfuls of peanut butter.

Kayla said...

This is so great! I'm a software engineer and spend a lot of time at my desk, and love having things to nibble on. Recently, with all the Vega bar BOGO sales, I've really been loving their Vibrancy and Protein bars as snacks!

Cadry's Kitchen said...

I ordered one of the snack packs after your review, and it has been so great to drink while I make dinner! Often by the time I make dinner, I'm already hungry, and so it's hard to have patience and enjoy myself. The tea sates my hunger without making me too full for dinner. I'm working my way through it fast, and so it would be great to win your giveaway!

My favorite afternoon snacks: a banana with a handful of peanuts, a couple of dolmas, or roasted chickpeas.

Cadry's Kitchen said...

Oh, I wanted to mention too that the tea is also great for deglazing pans while cooking! Last night I was making a tofu scramble for dinner while drinking the Tomato Basil tea, and whenever the scramble bits would start to stick, I just added splashes of the broth tea. I usually use water for deglazing, but the tea has more flavor and was already there.

YUM! These teas sound awesome!!! Throw my name in fo sho!!!

My favorite snacks when I'm at home are cut up veggies and hummus :)... when I'm at work, though, I'm snacking constantly on goodies; a habit I need to fix!

Brianna Larkin said...

My go to is iced tea and fruit. I wonder how these would do iced.

Dana said...

this is SUCH a great prize!! I'm going to have to order some of these if I don't win. I love snacking in the afternoon, and I almost always reach for the almonds.

Simona Cattina said...

I always have a cup of black tea with soy milk and some biscuits (preferably homemade) sometime in the afternoon :)

Jennifer Smith said...

My favorite afternoon snack is a smoothie lately. There is one that I make is bananas, raisins, strawberries and a little vanilla and spinach. It is sweet and does the trick.

Christina Hudler said...

Hmm favorite afternoon pickup is a nice cup of homemade hot cocoa!

Amanda said...

Yum! I've been wanting to try these since your review!

Lately, my favourite afternoon snack is coffee and a cookie, though I'm trying to get out of the cookie habit!

Ryan Smiga said...

I would love to try something new. Any flavor would be great. I don't care.

Sarah Kate said...

I also am at a desk all day and have to fight the urge to snack. Lately my go-to treat has been rice cakes topped with either avocado or Trader Joe's edamame hummus . . . so yummy!

Laura C. said...

Lately my snacks have been pretty junky, chips and way too much dark chocolate. I'd love to have some of this tea on hand, maybe it would reduce cravings for the less healthy stuff. lsc803@gmail.com

Beth said...

Savory tea is such a great idea for an afternoon pick me up, and I'd love to try them! Lately, I've been having a smoothie or toast with nut butter or mashed avocado for my afternoon snacks. Yum!! :) Thanks for doing the review and giveaway!

I like to have a cup of coffee or tea. If I'm feeling hungry, maybe a cookie... My email is ashley.poepke@gmail.com

Lesley Eats said...

What I'd like to say is my favorite pick-me-up and what I actually do are two different things. :D If I'm doing well, it's green tea.

Dara said...

Hmmm, I often have a decaf chai tea - I'd love to try a more savory option!

Elizabeth said...

I live for my snacks! Sometimes I'll have a bit of chocolate with some almonds, hummus and cucumber slices, an almond latte or green tea.

Sherry Grant said...

Carrots and Smoky Paprika Hummus

Jared Bigman said...

Dark chocolate is definitely my go-to afternoon snack!

Sheridan said...

Favorite afternoon snacks are mixed nuts or those little energy chunks they sell in the bulk bins at Whole Foods that have dates and coconut and spirulina and stuff in them! But, I would love to try out these teas! They sound so great!

Marianne said...

I snack on peanut butter and fruit in the afternoons.

sarahhhhhh said...

a big ole cup of coffee with almond milk!

Natalie Cote said...

Depending on my mood, I go for fresh cut pineapple or a vega protein bar! I am digging savory teas lately as well!!!

Pistachios! Can't get enough

pat said...

I've been drinking a lot of green tea as a pick me up in the afternoon. Lately I've been experimenting with cold brewing with additions of fresh fruit or ginger.

radioactivegan said...

I usually revert to coffee for afternoon energy. I'd be really happy to give these teas a try!

Lauren said...

I tend to go towards coffee for an afternoon pick-me-up, so these teas would be a great replacement!

Crissy said...

I love coffee or tea so a savory one would be great to try!

Makeup Melly said...

My favourite afternoon pick me up is always a Kind Bar. I am a make up artist and do very long days on set and need something fast and easy. I buy them by the box at whole foods. I feel that the savoury tea would be a great option as it would be easy and portable.

kelly g. said...

A nap? Just kidding! I'll say a bowl of strawberries with just a bit of So Delicious vanilla ice cream!

PaganAngel said...

I was so intrigued by these when you mentioned them! My favorite snack is apples and peanut or almond butter. So simple, healthy, and filling!

Vegan Zlatan said...

Vegetable purees, mainly fennel or potato. And possibly some green tea ice cream.

I used to eat chocolate covered espresso beans but I have since switched to tea.

Corrine Greenfield said...

Tea when I'm feeling tired. I gave up coffee 40 or so years ago.

Laura said...

I love the idea of these and would LOVE to try them. In the afternoons when I work at home I often have a cup of veggie broth with a splash of chalulah hot sauce. These would be a great replacement when I'm working "on site" and can't get to the broth! I replace it with green juice sometimes, but yeah, after a while, the sweet gets to me. I end up craving the savory!

Kombucha!

Lizzie Bordello said...

These are very intriguing! A nice walk with my dog is always a great pick-me-up in the afternoon! :)
