Delran, NJ (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
On SeriousChai.com, shoppers can choose from delectable regular and decaffeinated teas such as Moroccan mint, berry black, golden chai, jasmine green, maté lemon, earl grey and gunpowder green. Additionally on SeriousSips.com, restaurateurs, coffee shops and other food service clientele can purchase the same high-quality Numi teas in bulk.
Notable additions to the SeriousChai and SeriousSips lines are Numi Pu-erh and Rooibos.
Pu-erh is an ancient tea picked from 500-year-old organic wild tea trees in the mountains of China’s Yunnan province. Once picked, tea leaves are piled, dampened, and turned over a 60-day period. These specially fermented leaves produce a rich, bold flavor that tastes more like coffee than tea. Pu-erh is also known as a healing tea.
Roobos tea is red in color and has a unique nutty flavor. The Rooibos plant is native to South Africa and is rich in flavonoids and antioxidants, in addition to being caffeine-free. Rooibos tea gained popularity during WWII when tea supplies from Asia forced drinkers to find an alternative.
"By using only the highest quality, organic ingredients, as well as featuring hard-to-find teas such as rooibos and pu-erh, Numi has established itself as a top tea company,” stated Matthew Holmes, President and COO of Vertana Group LLC, parent company of both SeriousSips.com and SeriousChai.com. “We're excited to expand our tea offerings through Numi, and will continue to feature the best beverage products around."
Numi Organic Tea was formed in 1999 by the Rahim siblings in Oakland, California to produce organic and Fair Trade Certified teas and herbal teasans made with 100% real ingredients. Numi manufactures and distributes tea in biodegradable, filter-paper tea bags. The bags are then packaged in recycled boxes printed with soy-based inks without plastic wrappers.
Numi joins Novus, Pixie Mate, Big Train and Two Leaves tea products on the two sites. Individuals interested in purchasing Numi Organic Tea products can visit SeriousChai.com. Businesses wishing to purchase Numi Organic Tea products in large quantities can visit SeriousSips.com.
