About Rishi Tea

Rishi Tea is a provider of loose teas, headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, and is one of the leaders in sustainability among tea companies. Rishi tea was founded in 1997 by Joshua Kaiser. Rishi carries a large number of fair trade and organic teas, and a fair number of rare/artisan teas. In addition to their committment to organic and fair trade teas, Rishi tea is committed to sustainability and green practices, and lives this out both in their business practices and also by donating to and promoting environmental organizations.

Rishi sells virtually every major style of tea available, including black, green, white, pu-erh, and oolong teas, as well as flavored teas, rooibos, herbal teas, yerba mate, and other blends. Rishi teas are available by mail-order as well as in various retail stores; they tend to be stocked in health-food stores and tea specialty stores. Some cafes and coffee shops also serve Rishi Tea.

Pu-erh Classic

Style: Ripened (Shou) Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China
May. 17th, 2018

This is my first unflavored puerh, so I don't have anything to compare it to. Mine was aged for 3 years so it might be slightly different from the normal version, but probably not that much. I had to air it out for a week to get rid of the smell of fish. Once that went away, the aroma of the dry leaves became earthy in...

Ancient Golden Yunnan

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China
Apr. 18th, 2017

While somewhat broken, the dry tea is in relatively large pieces and the golden tips that the style is known for are apparent. The aroma is malty with notes of raisins.

While brewing, the tea smells wonderful. The maltiness is pronounced, but tannic, leafy and perhaps mineral elements are also present.

The first ...

There the excitement ended. The infusion itself was decen...

China Breakfast

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China
Aug. 8th, 2015

With many Chinese teas I find the bitterness to be somewhat overwhelming, but while this tea has some definite bitterness, it is pretty smooth and not at all unpleasant. It's a strong tea with a mild grassy aroma. Very astringent. A bit of a sour aftertaste. On the second steeping when the bitterness was significantly ...

Jade Cloud (aka Green Jade)

Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China
Jul. 14th, 2015

Not bad, but a bit astringent (almost bitter) to my taste. It has a refreshing quality, too. This tea reminds me a lot of the teas I drank while living in Japan (though it's a Chinese tea).

Certainly worth giving a try. I always like the quality of Rishi teas.
