Organic green tea leaves, organic jasmine flowers
I love gren tea, after my days spent living in Japan, and
I also love Jasmine tea, which I first tried after a friend brought
some back from a trip to Vietnam. It was heavenly, so light and floral
and delicate! And this tea is a lovely, subtle combination of the two.
From Numi's website:
Jasmine tea is the oldest known scented tea, and ours
begins its life in the gardens of Hunan Province. The rich soil and
fluctuations in daily temperature yield a fragrant leaf which is
further scented with delicate white Jasmine blossoms. During summer,
these are gathered daily by the banks of the Min River and repeatedly
mated each night with the prepared tea, naturally embracing all of the
flowers' scent. When brewed, this smooth, organic green tea has layers
of subtle fragrance and hints of moonlight. It is a most romantic tea,
and, like a bowl of fresh picked flowers, will bring the joy of summer
to your every sip.
For green tea lovers looking for a subtle twist, this is a wonderfully floral and fragrant choice.

Numi Tea is a
fabulous organic company with a contagiously exotic passion for tea.
All of their teas come in recycled cardboard boxes, and they use only
biodegradable tea bags.
From their website: "Numi's vision is to inspire well-being
of mind, body and spirit through the simple art of tea. Numi elevates
the tea experience through quality, creativity, and authenticity. We
are grateful to those who contribute to our tea journey, and we hope
to have a positive impact on all members of our Communitea -
from farmer to packer to our fellow tea drinker. Conscientious of the
impact of our actions, we aspire to be environmentally responsible
and globally sustainable by using recyclable and biodegradable
packaging and sustainable bamboo in our merchandising.
With a passion for people and learning, the Numi Tea'm
travels and sources its teas and herbs directly from the gardens of
origin ensuring the freshest ingredients of the season's latest
pickings. Our teas and herbs are certified ORGANIC, Fair Trade,
Kosher and Halal.
Numi uses only full-leaf tea in their teabags, ensuring a
loose-leaf quality tea in every cup. The taste of each tea offers a
clean, crisp and long lasting experience. Most tea bags utilize
leftover tea dust or fannings that can only be steeped for 30
seconds, otherwise resulting in a bitter taste.
To create the purest tea on the planet, we use only real
fruits, flowers, herbs and spices in our tea bags, without the added
oils or flavorings (including “natural flavorings”) common to the
market. This creates a naturally pure taste rich in authentic flavor.
Other flavored teas in the market spray poor grade tea dust or
fannings with an oil or essence. The flavor is usually overpowering and
perfumey and masks the true taste of tea.
From the farmer's tea garden, through the packaging
and decaffeination process, to the final soothing cup of tea in your
home, every step is guided by our devotion to bringing our customers
the finest tastes!
Rip open various tea and teasan bags and
smell the fresh aromatic scents of our premium ingredients. Steep the
flavor of choice and Taste the Numi Difference - a clean, natural
tasting cup that tastes like a loose leaf pot of tea or a freshly
steeped herb picked from your garden."
And a bit about the health benefits of tea from Numi's
Why drink tea? Tea is rich in polyphenols, tannin, and
flavanols, often termed catechins, fluoride, and vitamin C, P, K, and
B. Although tea contains caffeine, the amounts are far less than
those in coffee and produce a softer, beneficial effect. Studies
suggest that as few as four servings of tea a day may have a positive
impact on your health, so continue sipping tea for your health and
