Numi Tea Garden: Red Mellow Bush Rooibos and a light feast



The weather and the economic crisis has managed to chill me. Needing warmth I brewed a cup of bagged Numi Temple of Heaven Gunpowder Green Tea. Today's Science Times reported on the role of "cold" social perceptions and "sensations of warmth or coldness." I picked up the Gunpowder Green and a bag of Monkey King Jasmine Green from the Numi Tea Garden in Oakland California. The Gunpowder is vibrantly grassy!



With two friends, I enjoyed a "light feast" and tea after a morning and afternoon of touring marshes and creeks in Oakland and Alameda, California. I ordered Red Mellow Bush Rooibos. Rooibos was recommended for the Muhammara, a red pepper and walnut nut dip with pomegranate molasses. The rooibos complemented the other food as well: sheep's and goat's milk cheeses and Monkey Matcha Tea, Ruby Chai Chocolate Tea, and Meyer Lemon Lavender tea cookies.

One of us ordered an iced tea and the other, Fields of Gold Lemongrass.









Always a fan of tea services, I could not resist taping the preparation of the Rooibos. The Numi Tea Garden is most easily accessed by car but you can bike there via Jack London Square/5th Avenue/Embarcadero. *** The video is too large to post here.
