Niche tea companies seem to be arriving on the scene at an exponential rate. Chowhounds have a lot to say about tea, and Rishi is a favorite. Having partnerships with tea and herb growers around the world has made Rishi Tea a leader in organic cultivation, sustainable harvesting, and artisan processing techniques. These practices are reflected in the flavor and freshness of its teas; and with selections like Peach Blossom and Ancient Emerald Lily, even the non–tea drinkers among us are enticed.
