Ganoderma lucidum– also known as the red Reishi mushroom, this mild flavor adds a note of depth to the coffee flavor and brings it’s own benefits. Ganoderma mushrooms provide triterpenoids and amino acids. Ganoderma mushrooms are ‘adaptogens’.
Ganoderma lucidum has been used in traditional Asian culture for thousands of years. The name Ganoderma lucidum means “spiritual potency”, while the Japanese name Reishi can be translated as “King of Herbs”.
DID YOU KNOW?
Rooibos grows only in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The name rooibos (pronounced “roy-boss”) means ‘red bush’ and the tea is made from the leaves of the plant, whose botanical name is Aspalathus linearis. Rooibos has a refreshing taste, almost nutty and full bodied, and because it has less tannins than other teas it has none of the bitter flavors that they possess.
HOW TO USE IT
Place 1 cup into a brew cup coffee maker and brew for a flavorful cup of tea. Add milk, sugar, or other sweeteners to taste. Can also be brewed and add ice for a cool, refreshing beverage.
