Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — In this economy, the vacation might have to wait but one can still travel miles away while staying home with a cup of tea and a good book. With affordable and healthy tea gifts, consumers can still get into the spirit of giving without a bad conscience or empty pocketbook – and find the right gift to fit the personality. Both Numi Organic Tea’s founders, Ahmed and Reem Rahim, spend time in tea gardens garnering inspiration for top quality tea gifts that are manufactured ecologically as well as providing a fully sensual experience for the consumer.
Ahmed Rahim, known as the Alchemist, says, “Every time we travel the world visiting the tea gardens, meeting with new suppliers, receiving gifts from various farmers, you realize there is so much to share with the world. The holiday season is definitely a time to share with those you love and spend time enjoying the precious moments; from your warm home to the songs and prayers that echo across the world.”
By supporting organic agriculture, paying an above average wage and buying tea through fair trade co-ops, Numi’s organic tea business has provided health care, free housing and/or land on which to build and farm as well as a chemical and pesticide-free work environment.
