I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. It’s not only a tradition in our family, but we drink it almost like drinking water. Just as much as I am a chocolate “snob”, I’m quite particular about the tea that I drink as well. I drink mostly green tea for its health benefits and taste, but occassionally I’ll venture out to other flavors and varieties. One of the varieties that I’ve tried and come to enjoy is called, “Pu’erh”. Pu’erh tea is an ancient fermented tea from China that was discovered many hundreds of years ago. It was once revered as a “healing tea” with more benefits than green tea. However, because it’s also a rare tea and hard to find one that’s truly pure Pu’erh, it is not as well known as other tea varieties. One company, Numi Organic Tea has captured the true essence of Pu’erh tea and in their iced-tea version, the flavors are even more delightful and enjoyable.
Although drinking hot, freshly brewed tea is best for its health benefits, somehow Numi’s got the science down in producing a high-quality, fermented iced tea version in their Numi Pu’erh Bottled Tea. Perhaps it’s because they source their tea from Pu’erh’s origin of Yunnan, China that they are able to produce such a high-quality, organic tea. Or simply perhaps they put great care in the selection of their Pu’erh tea. Numi Pu’erh Bottled Tea are definitely a unique blend of deep flavors with a fruity aftertaste. And that’s because in their bottled tea version, they infuse natural fruits and herbs with the Pu’erh tea to make it an exceptional new way of enjoying “iced” tea. And their organic Pu’erh teas contain more antioxidant than other teas and their bottled version is a delight to the taste buds. In an independant ORAC test, Numi’s Organic Pu’erh tea yields 32% higher in antioxidant properties than one serving of hot green tea. Although to me, green tea has a much sweeter taste, the iced version of Numi’s Organic Pu’erh tea definitely has a delectable flavor to it rather than the bitter taste that I was used to when I first drank Pu’erh tea.

The company Numi Organic Tea has been around for over 10 years and started humbly in a little studio in Oakland, California. In wanting to create a high-quality, organic, and pure version of tea for tea connoisseurs and beginners all around, the brother and sister team founded Numi Organic Tea and soon the company’s tea became a household staple. They searched all over the world for tea leaves that they could proudly serve their customers and family and friends and developed a great partnership with tea farmers in China, India, and South Africa among a few other smaller countries. Numi produces a large selection of tea for every kind of tea lover (or beginner). Their tea ranges from Pu’erh tea to green tea, to black tea, to flavored tea, to herbal tea, and to white tea. All of their tea are made from organic tea leaves grown in protected organic fields and no toxic pesticides or fertilizers are used or allowed. Their leaves are gently plucked by tea experts on the field and processed minimally to ensure the highest quality.
Numi is also a fair-trade and fair-labored certified company. And this is always good news since their tea are sourced from farms directly. It’s important that companies are being more aware of the equality of smaller farms because this also ensures a better relationship between product growth and company growth. Numi takes great pride in what they do and it shows in their tea products.
So I encourage you to drink more tea – tea of all sorts produce immense health benefits. And you don’t have to take my word for it. For more info on the health benefits of tea, please visit Numi’s website: http://www.numitea.com/pure-tea/health-benefits/.
