Rishi Loose Leaf Tea
Rishi Loose Leaf Tea
Earl Grey is a British tea classic and the most popular tea of the Western World. This citrus-scented tea blend dates back to the 19th Century Sino-British trade of opium, tea, silk and porcelain. Our bestselling Organic Earl Grey blends bold-flavored Yunnan Dian Hong harvested from antique tea trees with natural Bergamot citrus from Southern Italy.
Long Jing, or "Dragon Well," is a classic Chinese green tea that undergoes special pan-firing and hand-shaping in hot woks to give the tender spring-harvested tea leaves a flat, sword blade shape. Dragon Well traditionally has a rich, savory and fresh flavor accented by hints of toasted chestnut.
Moonlight White Tea is the most common style of traditional white tea and consists of two tealeaves and a silvery bud. Gentle processing and a unique withering process result in an amber-orange infusion with low astringency, weighty mouthfeel and a mild flavor that pairs well with most foods.
Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong Tea. A specially baked tea made to order for Rishi Tea each spring and winter. Tae Guan Yin is known as Iron Goddess of Mercy and is the most famous oolong tea. Our special grade of this tea is hand-harvested from the soft stem Wu-Yi tea bush cultivar that is descended from the original tea bushes introduced to Taiwan from Fujian in the 19th Century. Made according to the traditional Tae Guan Yin oxidation and bamboo coal baking techniques developed in China's Fujian province, our Iron Goddess of Mercy is a special treat for oolong tea lovers.
Tangerine Ginger combines roots, fruits and herbs to create an uplifting, bold-flavored vitality tonic. Ginger and licorice invigorate, while rosehips and tangerine refresh with their bright succulence. Wild-harvested schizandra berry bestows an exotic layer of aromatic complexity. This rejuvenating, adaptogenic berry is harvested at its peak ripeness to lend tart cranberry and citrus accents to this vibrant juicy blend.
Rooibos creates a delicious infusion with the richness of honey and a smooth, sweet flavor. It is often brewed strong and served with a slice of lemon, which draws out its sweet fruity notes of ripe berries.
