You should call Andrew and talk to him; he's really nice and very receptive (he's also extremely knowledgeable; it was he who sent me to Assam Tea Company for some very fine Indian black tea). And don't get me wrong, Rishi has some slammin' tea. They were my first foray into tea and hold a special place in my heart. Their jasmine pearls are excellent BTW, and I reviewed them on Amazon (I came to prefer Seven Cups' Silver Dragon Pearls and Snow Drop Jasmine, though). Make sure to try Rishi's Sencha Sakura in the spring. It's a very elegant brew.
It's a shame Whole Foods did Rishi so dirty but they do that to a lot of vendors/employees. Rishi used to be a huge presence in their stores here, especially Columbus Circle. There's very little to be found of them there now although a (not cheap) tisane caught my eye that I'll probably buy.
