Revered Pacific Northwest Peppermint Varietal Offering Cooling, Candy Cane-Like Sweetness USDA Organic Non-GMO Certified Organic by QAI Certified KosherFlavor StoryThe Pacific Northwest peppermint variety is prized as the most aromatic, soothingly sweet and potent in the world. Rishi’s pure peppermint is grown near wine regions like Yakima Valley, in microclimates that are perfectly suited for growing peppermint with a naturally sweet, rich flavor and euphoric, heady aroma.Taste True TeaWe are driven by a mission to connect tea drinkers to the origins of our teas. For us, that is the essence of being a direct trade importer. Rishi’s tea buyers travel the world every year, collaborating with artisan tea farmers during the peak growing seasons. This allows us to source organic teas and botanicals of an epicurean caliber, infusing everything we create with a signature quality and story. In that adventurous spirit, we invite you to Taste True Tea.Fuller Flavor | Deeper Aroma | Richer BodyIntroducing Our Novel Knit Tea BagUnlike common paper tea bags—which strip away the flavor and aroma of tea—the Rishi tea bag features a novel knit material designed to provide a truer infusion of our organic teas and herbal ingredients. The result is an incredibly aromatic, full-bodied cup that tastes just as rich as loose leaf tea.

The first harvest offers rich body and balanced flavor, while the second harvest yields a higher concentration of volatile oils, creating those complex, beautiful aromatics and nuanced, candy sweet flavor.
