Numi Organic Teas Launched Sweet Slumber Tea
Oakland, California-based Numi Organic Tea launched Sweet Slumber herbal tea and Drinking Chocolates at the Winter Fancy Food Show Jan. 19-21 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center reports Progressive Grocer.
Sweet slumber is a caffeine-free blend of chamomile, hop flowers, lavender and valerian root, which is known for promoting stress relief and restfulness without grogginess.
“Numi has always been committed to the wellness of our customers, and that’s why we’re happy to announce these new products that cater to specific emotional and physical health needs,” said Ahmed Rahim, CEO and Co-Founder of Numi Organic Tea via press release. “A recent report from Gallup showed that the majority of Americans experience stress during the day, and consumers are seeking easy, safe solutions to counter their stress. Ingredients like valerian root, lavender, and chamomile continue to trend and grow in popularity given their natural, effective relief from stress, anxiety, and insomnia. That’s why we’ve included these ingredients in Sweet Slumber, which can help people to calm down and sleep soundly at the end of the day.”
Numi plans to continue developing relaxation-focused teas, according to Beverage Daily.
In keeping with Numi’s humane standards, the Drinking Chocolates are made with fair trade cocoa from Peru. Customers can choose from four flavors: Dash of Salt, Kick of Mocha, Touch of Chili, and Shroom Power. Each consists of dark chocolate crumbles meant to be dissolved in water or milk producing a rich hot chocolate.
Additionally, as part of a brand refresh, the company has redesigned its logo, which is now a simple black and white design with “Numi” written vertically.
The company is upholding its sustainability standards. “Our new packaging is more eco-friendly than ever with the launch of our new, plant-based tea wrappers. We still use 90 percent post-consumer waste paper cartons, soy-based inks, and biodegradable Manila hemp tea bags, as we’ve done for the past 20 years,” explained Reem Hassani, Numi Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer. “Equally important is the new brand refresh, featuring package imagery and typography that engage our consumers in a way that’s relevant, inclusive and hopeful. Each side of the carton tells a different story—from our ingredients to our Foundation. We want to bring more people in to join our movement for a better world.”
