Numi Organic Tea, known for organic, non-GMO and fair trade certified teas and teasans, has announced a new product line: Indulgent Tea. A new collection of chocolate teas, Numi’s Indulgent Tea celebrate the blending of tea and cacao.
While food trends come and go, chocolate has been an object of cravings and affection since the first cacao plant originated in the Amazon in 2000 BC. Today, chocolate is getting its due for being more than delicious, and is heralded for its health benefits and mood-boosting properties. Numi’s Indulgent Teas provides a guilt-free way for chocolate lovers to satiate their sweet tooth and enjoy the good-for-you qualities of cacao.
With only five calories per cup, no sugar, and a SRP of $7.99 for a box of 12 tea bags, Numi Indulgent Teas make it easy to save on both calories and cash, company officials say. Consumers can experience these tea blends any time of the day with milk or honey, or simply on their own.
