Numi Organic Tea has announced the imminent arrival of a new product line: Indulgent Tea. A new collection of chocolate teas, Numi’s Indulgent Tea line celebrates the blending of two favorite flavors: 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 provide a guilt-free way for chocolate lovers to satisfy cravings for sweetness and enjoy the good-for-you qualities of cacao.
The Numi Indulgent Teas will retail for $7.99 for a box of 12 tea bags. Each cup of the tea contains only five calories. The tea blends can be enjoyed any time of day with milk or honey or on their own.
“Since we launched our Chocolate Pu-erh Tea in 2008, it has increased in its popularity every year,” says Ahmed Rahim, CEO and Chief Alchemist for Numi Organic Tea. “Now we are pleased to introduce our Indulgent Teas, combining some of our top-selling tea blends with cacao to offer unique tastes for every palate within the ever-growing chocolate tea category.”
