Our English Breakfast highlights tea from the Chiang Dao region of Northern Thailand, where we source from some of the best Assamica variety tea gardens in the world. The high elevation garden we source from has premier tea plant genetic strains from Assam and Kenya, as well as local wild Thai tea trees that have been comingling and hybridizing for over six decades. The result is a lush and biodiverse growing environment with tea plants that are truly unique. Our English Breakfast has a rich red infusion color that is malty and robust with sweet fruity undertones and a brisk body that can stand up to milk and sugar. By comparison, our China Breakfast is intended to be more mellow, caramel-sweet and is designed to be smooth enough to drink straight up without milk and sugar.
Our signature chamomile blend highlights golden Croatian chamomile blossoms, which are masterfully paired with soothing herbal counterpoints of lemon verbena, lemongrass, and spearmint. Striking the perfect balance of savory and floral, Chamomile Medley is a delightful way to relax and refresh the palate at the end of a meal.
Masala Chai is a spiced tea beverage with roots in ancient India, where traditional spice blends known as karha were mixed with black tea, milk and sugar. Rishi’s famously spicy Masala Chai is balanced and energizing when brewed either straight up or in the classic way with milk and sugar to taste.
This classic black tea is the namesake of Charles Grey, Britain’s Prime Minister during the 1830’s. After saving the life of a Chinese nobleman, the Earl Grey received a gift of citrus blossom-scented tea traditionally known as Tai Tai Cha. Tea salons throughout Europe replicated this blend by perfuming black teas with the aromatic oil of Italian bergamot oranges. Thus, a timeless tea was born.
