For thousand of years, the unoxidized leaves of green tea have been enjoyed for their vast array of flavors, gentle stimulation and healthy (healthful?) properties. Numi’s premium green teas are perfectly balanced with sweet vegetal overtones and a pleasant touch of astringency. Organic ingredients and delicate scenting with real flowers transport the soul and clear the mind.
Jasmine tea is the oldest known scented tea, and Numi’s begins its life in the gardens of Hunan Province, China. The rich soil and fluctuations in daily temperature in this region yield a fragrant leaf, over which organic jasmine flowers are laid until their scent is absorbed by the tea. Scented three times, this smooth green tea has layers of subtle fragrance and hints of moonlight. Numi’s Jasmine Green tea is sourced from the first Fair Trade gardens in China, where workers’ wages have increased 30-40% and premiums recently funded a school dormitory for children. Directions: Bring fresh water to a boil. Allow to cool slightly then pour over a bag of Jasmine Green and steep 2-4 minutes to capture the full taste.
