Culinary Gifts

You can satisfy the most discriminating tea connoisseur with the unique assortment of black, green, white and herbal teas from Numi. All of the company’s tea blends are made without essential oils or flavorings, and rely instead on herbs, spices and dried fruits for rich flavor. For example, Berry Black is Darjeeling tea blended with freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries. Moonlight Spice is a delicate white tea blended with orange peel, schisandra berries, lemongrass and spices. Even the company’s Earl Grey is naturally scented with real bergamot oranges instead of bergamot flavoring.

Numi’s most unusual offerings are the flowering teas. Fragrant flowers such as rose, jasmine, lavender and chrysanthemum are rolled in green, white or black tea leaves and hand-sewn into artistic bundles by artisans in China. When steeped in a pot of hot water, the leaves burst open into stunning shapes (many look like blooming flowers), making a delicious and beautiful pot of tea.
