I love to drink tea. It has so many health benefits and I like the flavor. I have to be careful of the caffeine, my body doesn't tolerate it in large doses, but I like to drink it. Hot or cold, sweet or unsweet. I LOVE chai lattes!
I came across Rishi Teas and have found a new way to drink tea. Tea Powder. Pure tea for sustained energy and health! These are so cool! Tea Powders that come in small, handy packets that you just mix into water and drink! You just empty one packet into 16 oz of water and shake vigorously.
Rishi Tea Powders are made from 100% pure tealeaves that are cold milled into a fine powder. No added colorants, synthetic sweetenes, sugars or flavors, just the antioxidant, vitamin and mineral richness of real tea.
The teas tasted GREAT! The packets are very handy and can be thrown into your purse or wallet to take with you and drink anywhere. I enjoyed all the flavors I tried:
Sencha has long been Japan's most popular green tea, loved for it's refreshing character
Oolong tea is one of the most cherished teas of Asia, adored for its profound aroma and numerous health benefits.
Matcha was originally used by Zen monks to promote clarity and focus during meditation. Rishi matcha is made from premium shade grown Japanses green tea.
Genmai green tea is refreshing and nourishing with the sweet flavor of roasted rice.
