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. Rooibos 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.
Also called “Red Tea,” rooibos is an herb indigenous to the Cederberg region of South Africa. Known for its calming effects, rooibos has a deep, earthy vanilla taste.
Flavor: Rich and earthy with soft apple notes
Brewing Instructions: For gentle ease, steep 5-6 minutes. Enjoy with or without milk. For iced tea, steep 2 tea bags, cool and pour over ice.
Ingredients: Verified Fair Labor™ organic rooibos
Source: From its beginnings in 1999, Numi has worked with the same small-scale, organic rooibos farm in the Cederberg region of South Africa. Numi Foundation’s Together for H2OPE initiative brought running water to workers’ houses at this farm for the first time. The farm uses innovative farming methods to integrate patches of wild landscape into cultivated areas, protecting the biodiversity and overall health of the landscape.
