Tea is a misnomer for anything steeped in hot water. Teas come from the tea plant. “Teasans” is Numi's term, from the French tisanes, for brewed herbal beverages brewed from herbs, fruits or flowers. Strictly speaking, Teasans contain no tea leaves. They have a variety of flavors from minty, to sweet chamomile to tart lemon. They contain no caffeine and have an abundant and varied health benefits depending on the herb, flower or fruit.
As with all intensively farmed crops, conventional tea is routinely treated with a broad range of agricultural chemicals that are potentially harmful to farmers, farm workers and the environment. As opposed to most produce that is washed prior to consumption, most teas are air-dried without first being washed. The first time tea comes into contact with water is in our own cups, right before we drink it. This means that any harmful chemicals used at the gardens are released in our cups along with the tea flavor.
At Numi, they are committed to supporting organic tea cultivation to protect the health of farmers, the planet and you. Beyond delivering the highest quality of product, organic teas are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Choosing organic not only preserves the Earth's resources and protects the health of the farmers, but ensures that what is going into our bodies is 100% natural, made the way nature intended.
