Numi Organic teas

"Numi Organic Tea is a privately owned triple bottom line social enterprise based in Oakland, California. Numi is known for its assortment of organic and fair trade certified teas and herbal "teasans".
The company was founded in 1999 by brother and sister, Ahmed and Reem Rahim. The founders named the company "Numi" after the citrusy, Middle Eastern dried lime tea they drank as children growing up in Iraq. The name Numi is derived from the Arabic word forcitrus." saids Wikipedia.

I was so lucky to get a sample of their savoury teas, organic teas and Dry desert Lime from Green Pharmacies in Hong Kong.

The organic range I tried were:

Chamomile lemon
 Emperor's Pu Erh
Decaf Ginger Lemon
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
White Rose
Jasmine green

Jasmine green
(Fair trade certified organic green tea scented with organic jasmine flowers)
The Jasmine tea was nice and pleasant.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
(organic roobos)
The smell of this was similar to chipped wood but the taste was not as strong as I expected.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Emperor's Pu Erh
(organic black Pu erh tea)
The pu erh came out strong with a dark brown colour, it's tastes was earthy and strong.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Chamomile lemon
(Fair trade certified organic Chamomile, organic lemon myrtle)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
White Rose
(Fair trade certified organic white tea, organic rosebuds)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Decaf Ginger Lemon
(Fair trade certified organic decaf green tea, org, ginger, lemongrass)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

The latter three were not bad but I am not a fan or floral teas and lemongrass.

You can buy these on their website Green Pharmacies or Citysuper (Time Square, Shatin), Organic stores and Beauty Salons.
