Numi was founded in 1999 in Oakland, California by brother and sister Ahmed Rahim and Reem Hassani with a vision to share the transformative, healing power of tea with the world. They named their company after the steeped dried desert lime they drank in their early childhood in Baghdad, Iraq. The drink symbolizes hospitality and community (numi means “citrus” in Arabic). Creative, conscious change-makers, they have introduced little-known herbs and teas to the United States, while advancing human rights and sustainable causes around the globe. Earl Grey Tea
Numi teas are made using premium quality, hand-picked organic and fair trade teas and herbs, blended with only real fruits, flowers and spices. No compromise.

Source: This Assam black tea comes from Tonganagaon, the largest organic Fair Trade tea estate in India, where Numi’s Together for H2OPE project brought clean water and sanitation to over 6,500 farmers and their families. Workers have used Fair Trade Premiums to purchase clean-burning cook stoves and food-safe aluminum containers to bring their lunches to work.
