Amber Sun Tea
Here comes your personal cup of sunshine. Musky, burnished orange turmeric brings the light to gentle rooibos and sweet vanilla bean, while peppery spices add a touch of heat. Sip for a guaranteed glow up.
Numi works tirelessly to make a positive mark on the world, with an environmentally- and socially-based action plan.
Why we love it
Take one part cozy campfire, one part ice cream in bed, and two parts freshly dug earth in the afternoon sun. Warm and a little indulgent, this caffeine-free blend takes its inspiration from all these moments and more, pouring them into punchy cinnamon, citrusy cardamom, and vanilla bean, complemented by rich, recognizable turmeric, a staple in many curries. You'll be walking on sunshine for sure.
Amber sun is caffeine free.
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 causesThe 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 footprintNumi 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 packagingIn 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 sourcingTheir 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.
