Rishi Tea adds five new loose leaf teas to Chai selection

Rishi Tea has added five new loose leaf teas to its Chai selection. Each tea is organic and Fair Trade certified and is available in a stylish tin. Chai, or “tea” in India, is made of a blend of spiced black tea which is combined with sugar and hot milk or water.

Rishi's new teas come in a variety of exciting flavors to whet every drinker’s appetite. The five flavors as described by the company:

-Masala Chai is an award-winning blend based on the traditional Indian tea, using robust, shade-grown black tea from Rishi’s Ancient Tree Tea, Organic Fair Trade project in the Yunnan province of China.

-Chocolate Chai is a sophisticated take on hot cocoa, combining energizing pu-erh tea, shade-grown yerba maté, cacao, creamy vanilla and coconut.

-Green Tea Chai blends pan-fired green tea with spicy undertones of ginger and a sweet citrus finish of lemongrass for a refreshing, innovative tea.

-Vanilla Mint Chai is a creamy, pu-erh-based chai unlike any other, with a perfect balance of creamy vanilla bean, soothing peppermint and sweet cinnamon.

-Caffeine-Free West Cape Chai combines healthful rooibos, roasted ramón nut, South Asian star anise and a blend of spices for an aromatic and enlivening anytime chai.

Rishi Teas are available for $9.99 at Wegmans stores and select Whole Foods Markets around the country. For more information, go to www.rishi-tea.com.
