Rishi Tea was founded in the United States in 1997 on the commitment to set the standard for quality teas. They are an independently owned, and offer premium tea and botanicals imported directly from gardens across the world. Rishi focuses on expanding the awareness of tea and its rich tradition beyond its origins. They are inspired by ancient artisanal growing practices and organic methods. In fact, they were among the first to earn organic certification under the USDA’s Natural Organic Program in 2002. Rishi has always focused on maintaining the highest level of quality. After all, ‘Rishi’ is Sanskrit for one who is a seer, sage or seeker of truth!
