Numi is a labor of love by a brother and sister. She is the artist and he is the alchemist behind all of Numi’s blends. We named our company Numi, after a Middle Eastern Dry Desert Lime we drank as children.
Herbal teasans are herbs, fruits and flowers, not the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Dry desert limes, grown in the Middle East are fully dried, crushed and sifted of dust.
