The Rishi is organic, however. It is the first organic white I have had, and it is outstanding. If you like to try new teas, you should try at least one of theirs.

But this is a little like comparing apples to oranges since the Rishi Silver Needle is certified organic, and has already gone through proper importing into the USA.
This particular ebay seller does not categorize a seperate heading for white tea, and their SN is from Yunnan. Several of Rishi's are from Fujian.

IMHO: Don't base your purchased based on the organic label. It means nothing.
