Rishi, meaning truth seeker in Sanskrit, is an independently-owned direct importer of premium, organic teas and botanicals from around the world, and 95% of all products are certified organic. Sustainability, both environmental and social are an important aspect of this tea business. This is implemented through various business practices across the supply chain and production shown in its three pillars of business, Selector, Importer, and Maker. Under Selector, Rishi Tea supports farmers who grow ecologically sustainable gardens of high-quality tea and botanicals in remote areas globally. Furthermore, products are purchased directly from artisan growers and special producers. All origin-sourced teas and botanicals are made through ancient and modern techniques following a strict code of ethics and well-being management. Additionally, tea packets are made from plant-based material, polylactic acid (PLA).
