There are few things as satisfying as a warm cup of tea in the afternoon or cool evening.
Many teas contain a number of powerful anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, immune boosting compounds. Today I’m enjoying our mushroom tea, “Wunder Shroom Tea“. I feel the need to boost and strengthen my immune system, and energy level. Our Wonder-Shroom Tea contains Shiitake, Reishi, and Maitake Mushrooms. We’ve taken great care combining only superior quality organic mushrooms in this blend, to obtain the highest level of taste and still achieve a high level of healthy polysaccharides. The outcome is a wonderfully delicious golden tea, with the aroma and taste of gourmet mushrooms with a super powerful punch of health benefits. Each mushroom has special health benefits making a wonderful soothing, refreshing and healthy “earthy” tea, designed to promote “health and energy”. It is a powerhouse for the Immune support system that encourages health, reduces Blood Pressure, and lowers Cholesterol.
So, you might be thinking, “why mushroom tea on a Lavender Farm website?“, good question. 🙂 Easy answer… it’s “Good for my health and heart”, and for the rest of you as well! We wanted our favorite customers to know about these amazingly powerful, healthy plant-based Fungi!! We care, and want you to feel invigorated, healthy and have a strong immune system! When my husband & I began drinking this Tea, we began to have more energy, and our bodies felt stronger, with less colds and viruses!! So…now Mushrooms and Lavender walk…. “Hand in Hand”, keeping our hearts and bodies healthier and happy!
Shiitake mushrooms, also known as Japanese Forest Mushroom, have exceptional culinary and medicinal qualities. They are known for antiviral and immune-boosting capabilities. Shiitake are 13-18% protein, and high in amino acids: leucine, and lysine, and have high-level of minerals and vitamins. The benefits of eating Shiitake Mushrooms are well-documented. In Japan it is taken to prevent heart disease as it regulates both high and low blood pressure, and anti-inflammatory benefits improve stomach and duodenal ulcers, neuralgia, gout, constipation and hemorrhoids. Shiitake also improve energy, generate stamina, and enhance the complexion.
Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma Lucidum) have long been used in the Orient, and considered to be the most potent of all fungi. They are known in China as Ling Chi. Reishi are known for their immune-stimulating properties and are traditionally dried, steeped, and then consumed in a tea. The Japanese government has officially recognized Reishi mushroom as a treatment for cancer.
Maitake (Grifola frondosa) known as Hen of the Woods, are highly valued for their medicinal properties as well. Recent in vitro studies at the National Cancer Institute have shown significant activity against the HIV virus when tested through its Anti-HIV Drug Testing System under the Developmental Therapeutics Program. Maitake medicinal properties include reduction of blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
I usually make a quart of Wunder-Shroom Tea and drink a small 2 oz. “Cocktail” Tea each morning with my coffee. It’s best to drink on an empty stomach. The mushrooms in the tea may be used more than once, making a subsequent “batch” that is a slight bit weaker, but still nutritious and tasty. <3
Now is the time for you to feel Strong! How about a Boost! Drink your mushrooms….It’s Good For Your Health 🙂
Cheers to Spring & Healthy You!!
