Rishi Tea Organic All Natural Tealeaves & Botanical at Natures Organic Market
Joshua Kaiser had developed a love for the various teas he tasted during his numerous travels throughout Asia. In 1997, along with a few friends, he started a 400 sq foot shop called Rishi Tea, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, that offered an array of handcrafted teas. The unique blends from Asia became a huge hit with the American public. Today, Rishi Tea is a market leader and one of the largest importers of handcrafted teas in the US. Rishi Tea's products are available throughout the US, in many private cafes, restaurants, and health food stores like Whole Foods. Rishi Tea hosts an online store, such that the tea lovers from US and Canada can place orders from the convenience of their homes.
Rishi Tea, as a company, made an effort to strike out the intermediaries by directly procuring loose-leaf teas from the diverse tea gardens of Asia. The team at Rishi Tea has taken the responsibility to hand pick the exceptional quality, fresh seasonal teas from the growers and tea artisans, themselves. One of the reasons behind this is to reduce cost, without compromising on the quality. All the teas selected by Rishi Tea, come from organic farms, ensuring that Fair Trade Standards are followed. Rishi Tea brings you supreme quality teas at the most affordable prices.
