Introducing 12 New Teas

We've handcrafted 12 new loose leaf tea blends, including 6 innovative botanical blends, 3 delicious chai teas, 2 energizing green teas and an aromatic oolong.

One of the fastest growing segments in the tea industry is “wellness tea,” but few premium loose leaf options exist. We’ve crafted six functional wellness blends that are naturally caffeine-free, organic and absolutely delicious. Our new botanical blends include Bergamot Sage, Hibiscus Berry, Red Ginseng Recharge, Serene Dream, Turmeric Ginger and White Ginseng Detox.

Our new Chai blends, Chocolate Mate Chai, Green Tea Chai and Vanilla Mint Chai, draw upon exotic and inspired ingredients designed for slow-brewing or infusing like tea.

Hot Rod Green Tea and Raspberry Green Tea fuse “super fruits” and naturally energizing herbs with green teas for a mood boosting and uplifting beverage without the sugar, chemicals and crash of most energy drinks.

And finally, our new Coconut Oolong perfectly blends Bao Zhong oolong with creamy coconut for a smooth and decadent tea. 

“Our thought process comes from the kitchen, not the lab,” says Joshua Kaiser, Rishi Tea founder and tea buyer. “We’re making innovative and interesting teas that represent different cultures and traditions. We look to ancient techniques to balance all aspects of the tea blend from energy and flavor to aroma and mouthfeel.”

All potential tea ingredients undergo a scrupulous evaluation process. Numerous herbs and fruits from various origins are tasted multiple times to determine the best ingredient for each blend, using organic certified ingredients and essential oils whenever possible. These thorough and precise measures result in well-balanced, high quality blends with nuance and depth.

All new teas will be available by August 4th at and will become part of Rishi’s Retail Tin Line starting in late 2010.

Join us for a celebration of our new teas on Thursday, August 12th from 6-8pm at the beautiful Anaba Tea Room in Shorewood, WI. Enjoy tea tastings, tea education, appetizers, giveaways & more! This event is free and open to all. To attend, please RSVP.
