RISHI - A Chai Party with Dr. Jane Goodall
(I received this in my inbox and thought I would post because there is a lot of interesting stuff in it…enjoy!)
A Chai Party with Dr. Jane Goodall
On a beautiful May evening, world-renowned Dr. Jane Goodall joined Rishi Tea and friends at the Nature Museum in Chicago to celebrate the launch of our new Masala Chai Concentrate and partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute.
We were honored to hear Dr. Goodall speak, about her incredible story, passion for animals and the environment and the importance of partnering with companies like Rishi Tea. Dr. Goodall remarked, “The more I learn about Rishi Tea, the more impressed I am and the more I realize how joining forces can spread the good that both of our organizations are involved in.”
Every purchase of our Masala Chai helps the Jane Goodall Institute, including Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, its global, environmental and humanitarian youth program.
Our new Masala Chai is made with all certified organic ingredients and a Fair Trade single-origin black tea harvested in the ancient tree forests of Mannong Manmai, in Yunnan, China – the birthplace of tea.
TransFair USA wrote a great article about our Chai and the Fair Trade work we do in Mannong Manmai – http://transfairusa.org/blog/?p=2667
