Purchase from Rishi
Rishi Tea's turmeric ginger herbal blend is my go-to drink when I'm feeling a bit under the weather - or if I just want to wind down after a long day with a hot cup of tea. For hot brewing, I diffuse one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea in ten ounces of water and let steep for five minutes. One of my friends caught a bad stomach bug a few weeks ago, and he requested a cold version of this tea - which I made by brewing the tea double-strength and pouring it over ice. According to him, it was the only non-carbonated liquid he could keep down for the duration of his illness.Purchase
Turmeric is a flavor that we don’t often encounter over here on the east coast, so it is nice to see it included in Rishi’s selection of teas. This tea also includes lemongrass, citrus peel, and licorice root, all combining to make a spicy-sweet tea that tingles the back of your throat as you drink it. I've also tried their Cinnamon Plum herbal blend, and it is an absolutely delightful way to end your day.
Rishi was one of the first importers of Fair Trade tea into the United States and today they remain an organic Fair Trade tea importer.
