Traditionally harvested and dried in the hot desert sun, this rare Arabian dried lime has been drunk for centuries. It has a distinct, tart citrus flavor and is an oasis of health.

Organic Fair Trade Certified Non-GMO

Carry fresh water back from the oasis (otherwise, filtered water will do). Bring to a boil and pour over a bag of Dry Desert Lime. Steep 5-6 minutes. For iced tea, steep 2 tea bags, cool and pour over ice.

Numi is a labor of love by a brother and sister. She is the artist and he is the alchemist behind all of Numi's blends. We named our company Numi, after a Middle Eastern Dry Desert Lime we drank as children.

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 large onions (cut into thin strips)
