Egg Drop Soup

Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of meeting tea growers and producers from all over the world. We love having the opportunity to introduce you to these people and their fascinating stories, like our friends at Nepal Tea. They grow high mountain teas in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjangha, the third highest mountain in the world. After tasting several of their teas, I spoke with Nishchal Banskota about creating recipes using their flavors and he graciously sent us more samples to use.

So today we’re sharing a healthy version of Egg Drop Soup featuring their Kanchanjangha Verde premium green tea. Not only is it far lower in sodium than the traditional recipe (which uses chicken broth), but it also provides all the health benefits of green tea in a way that even non-green-tea drinkers will go for! ~ Marlys
