Aged Earl Grey Tea

Numi

Start your day (or mid-afternoon) with brisk, malty Assam, aged alongside fragrant Italian oranges. Highly caffeinated, it’ll perk you up as much as coffee, with a much more pleasant citrusy aftertaste.

Sustainable goodness

Numi works tirelessly to make a positive mark on the world, with an environmentally- and socially-based action plan.

Why we love it

Who is Earl Grey, and, more importantly, how can we thank him for the spectacularly lively tea that shares his name? A nineteenth-century British aristocrat known for parliamentary reform, how he became associated with the blend is not well-known, so you’ll have to send your thank you cards to Numi. Deep, bold Assam meets sharp citrus for a well-rounded pick-me-up that's "simply divine."
This Aged Earl Grey is high caffeine, like any good one would be.

How it does good

A global family business serving the global family

Tea-making is hardly as simple (or as soothing) as pouring water into a cup. Deforestation, water shortages, and threats to biodiversity are all results of less ethical tea-based agriculture. Numi, a brother-sister team based in Oakland, is out to change that, with environmental practices focused on making great, flavorful tea while protecting land and employees. They cut out pesticides, fertilizers, and machine picking that impact taste, farmland, and the workers who handle them. They also use practices that sustain ecological harmony and send out their products in compostable bags and wrappers. The word “Numi” refers to an Iraqi drink, symbolic of hospitality and community. True to its name, Numi is introducing new, global tastes and new, globally protective practices with their tea.

  • supporting key causes

    The Numi Foundation donates fresh fruits and vegetables to food-insecure families and works with communities for long-term access to drinking water and sanitation. And community gardens, diversity and inclusion organizations, and a 2020 ballot initiative to eliminate truck emissions in California are just some in a long, long list of their contributions.
  • low carbon footprint

    Numi began eliminating direct and indirect carbon emissions along their growth and production lines in 2011. As of 2020, they have officially achieved Climate Neutral Certified status, which means that they have reduced and offset their emissions down to zero. Way to set a goal and stick to it!
  • recyclable packaging

    In 2020, they introduced a first-of-its-kind, plant-based wrapper, made with sugarcane and eucalyptus to be industrially compostable and break down fully, without any leftovers that will be harmful to the environment.
  • responsible sourcing

    Their founders maintain direct, decades-long relationships with tea producers, with traceable products from more than 34 countries. They support their farmers and producers with Fair Trade Certification and Fair Labor Verification, which uphold living standards and sponsor education, health care, community, and infrastructure initiatives for farming communities.

How to use it

For a perfect, steamy brew, steep 4-5 minutes. Add milk only if you want to. For an indulgent iced version, steep 2 tea bags, allow to cool, and pour over ice.

When you're done...

The carton is curbside recyclable. The tea bag is home or industrially compostable. The wrapper is industrially compostable. Find a location near you.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

Numi

Numi was founded in 1999 in Oakland, California by brother and sister Ahmed Rahim and Reem Hassani with a vision to share the transformative, healing power of tea with the world. They named their company after the steeped dried desert lime they drank in their early childhood in Baghdad, Iraq. The drink symbolizes hospitality and community (numi means “citrus” in Arabic). Creative, conscious change-makers, they have introduced little-known herbs and teas to the United States, while advancing human rights and sustainable causes around the globe.
