Types of Sachets

About our Sachets

Organic Sachets from Rishi Tea & Botanicals will change the way you think about tea bags. Our special knit tea sachets won't hinder the flavors and aromas of our premium teas. Our biodegradable sachet is the perfect way to enjoy our many, rich varieties of tea, grown by the best growers and crafted into our best blends.

Tea lovers will note the fullest flavors and most aromatic, vivid infusions they've ever experienced from a tea bag. Rishi Tea offers a specialized filter mesh tea sachet made from plant-based material that yields a far greater extraction ratio and infusion quality than any other tea bag. Paper and silky-mesh materials used in making other tea bags, are too tightly woven and act as a barrier to the tea leaves' infusion and extraction into the cup. We found a looser weave was necessary to improve the overall tea bag experience.

Rishi tea bags are made from a plant-based material called polylactic acid (or PLA for short). PLA is an inert, DNA-free material that is produced by breaking down starches found in plant sources. Through this process, no plant DNA is left behind, making these hypoallergenic and allergen-free. PLA is NOT derived from petroleum and will not leak harmful plasticizers into your brew. True to our sourcing ethics and to help showcase Rishi's high quality teas and botanicals, this material is purposefully sourced to provide you and your family with the safest and most delicious cup of tea!
