As summer temperatures climb, reach for something cool to sip with Rishi Tea’s extensive line of organic and fair trade teas. Recently awarded three top honors for their unique flavors, these three varieties of Rishi Tea—Masala Chai Concentrate, Citron Green Iced Tea and Mint Rooibos Iced Tea—are sure to cool things down.

The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) recognized Rishi Tea’s Masala Chai Concentrate as one of nine Silver sofi Award winners in the Best New Product category. This organic, fair trade concentrate is a microbrewed black tea seasoned with spices and vanilla. Fat-free, gluten-free and vegan, this concentrate is rich in flavor and not too sweet. Simply add equal parts Masala Chai Concentrate and organic milk to a glass, and enjoy a delicious chai tea latte, served hot or over ice.

The NASFT sofi Awards recognize the best in specialty food and beverages, and chose to reward Rishi’s Masala Chai Concentrate for its quality, innovation, packaging, ingredients and reasonable pricing. The proceeds from sales of Masala Chai Concentrate benefit Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots program, a global environmental and humanitarian project for students of all ages.

Additionally, Rishi Tea received two other top awards from the North American Tea Championship. The Citron Green Iced Tea nabbed first place in the Flavored Green Tea category. A refreshing blend of rooibos, tropical lemongrass and green tea, with notes of orange blossom, tangerine and jasmine, the Citron Green packs a light punch.

Rishi Tea’s Caffeine-Free Mint Rooibos snagged first place in the Flavored Herbal Iced Tea category. A blend of loose-leaf rooibos and peppermint with a splash of citrus, the Mint Rooibos is rich in antioxidants. Certified organic and fair trade, Rishi Tea’s complete Iced Tea line is packaged in paper that is 50 percent post-consumer waste and 100 percent recyclable.

Rishi Tea’s complete line is available at Whole Foods and Williams-Sonoma stores nationwide, or online. The Masala Chai Concentrate comes in a 32-ounce carton for $7 The iced tea line comes in a box with 5 pouches for $7; each pouch yields 32 ounces of brewed iced tea.
