The History of Tea
Tea is one of the oldest beverages known to man and enjoys a storied history that stretches back nearly 5,000 years. Fueling innovation and conflict, inspiring literature and revolution – it is the world’s second most consumed beverage even today. It is said that in 2737 BCE, Emperor Shen Nung rested beneath a tree to boil water for soup when several leaves drifted into his pot. Intrigued by the pleasant aroma, he drank heartily and was overcome with energy and wellbeing. Excited, he gathered more and brought the first tea leaves to China.
Travel the World with Each Sip
The World of Tea Collection seeks to share both global tea flavors and their stories. Read on for a sample of the iconic global teas you will taste in this collection.
Gunpowder Green (Taiwan):
This green tea is made by rolling tea leaves into tiny pellets. Early British traders thought they resembled gunpowder, and gave this tea its distinct name. Appearing in Taiwan in the 19th century, it was embraced for its hint of smoky flavor and full-bodied smooth taste.
Chamomile Lemon (Egypt):
Chamomile blossoms grow along the Nile River in Egypt. This unique blend highlights a touch of citrus with sweet calming notes.
Moroccan Mint (Morocco):
Known as “nana mint” from North Africa, this single-origin herbal beverage is light and lively with a sweet spearmint flavor.
Rooibos (South Africa):
Cultivated and consumed in South Africa for centuries for its healing properties, this herbal teasan, also known as red tea, features rich earthy vanilla notes.
Aged Earl Grey (Italy):
Real Italian bergamot orange is laid atop black tea to naturally absorb the orange scent, resulting in a one-of-a-kind rich Earl Grey tea with subtle citrus notes.
Breakfast Blend (England):
Traditional blend of four robust and distinct black teas makes for a hearty yet balanced morning cup of tea.
Golden Chai (India):
Black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and other spices make for a rich exotic blend – an enchanting taste of India.
Mate Lemon Green (South America – Brazil/Paraguay/Argentina):
The Guarani tribe of South America enjoys yerba mate as a daily tonic. Blended with lemon myrtle and green tea, this blend has a bright lemon taste with earthy undertones.
Jasmine Green (China):
Originating in the Song Dynasty (960–1279) this fragrant green tea was reserved for the Imperial Court. Jasmine flowers are laid atop green tea leaves and their scent is naturally embraced. This smooth green tea has layers of subtle fragrance and hints of moonlight.
Through thoughtful choices, Numi is committed to reducing its impact on the planet. Unlike produce and food, tea is not rinsed during processing, leaving any pesticides and chemicals to steep directly into your cup. Organic tea ensures a healthy, uncontaminated brew. Numi also uses backyard-compostable tea bags as opposed to GMO teabags, recyclable and biodegradable packaging, and sustainable bamboo.
