Rishi Tea & Botanicals was founded in 1997 after an extraordinary experience with artisanal, hand-crafted, Asian teas. After spending time in Asia, our founder, Joshua Kaiser, felt that he couldn’t return home to North America knowing that he’d have to hop on a plane and return to Asia if he ever wanted to enjoy this tea again. Instantly, Joshua felt drawn to expand North American’s awareness of premium tea, so he created Rishi Tea & Botanicals. Rishi Tea & Botanicals is no ordinary tea -- it is a combination of years of tradition, cocktail mixology, botanical apothecary, and culinary art. In short, Rishi Tea & Botanicals is a tea masterpiece. Each cup of tea is high in quality, rich in taste and full of traditional flavours. At Rishi Tea & Botanicals, we monitor our products from the moment it's harvested to the moment it fills your favourite mug. We travel throughout the world to connect with the best farmers and assess every ingredient that goes into our artisanal tea. We use artisanal and organic cultivation techniques to get the most flavour and nutrients in each cup. We ensure that all of our ingredients are sustainably sourced and free of GMOs, pesticides and fertilizers. We support our farmers through Fair Trade and facilitate traceability of every ingredient back to its source. At Rishi Tea & Botanicals, our mission is to bring the highest quality tea and botanicals from around the world right to your pantry. Our keto-friendly, paleo, AIP-friendly, low FODMAP and sugar-free teas set the standard for the tea industry and we continue to strive to raise the bar even more! We are passionate about botany, tea, and the culinary arts, and you can taste it with each cup of our tea.
