Black Tea – Tea is one of the most beloved drinks or beverages in the world, and is the most consumed beverage after water. Studies show that as little as 3 cups of black tea per day can have benefits, including supporting a healthy heart and other functions due to the types of antioxidants found in tea.
Ganoderma lucidum– Also known as the red Reishi mushroom, this mild flavor adds a note of depth to the tea flavor and brings its own benefits. Ganoderma lucidum provides 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”.
Dextrose – A simple sugar that is chemically identical to glucose (blood sugar) and provides a cooling taste. Sugar contains both sucrose and glucose. The glucose portion is used by the body for energy, making it a great choice for athletes and the whole family.
Honey Powder – Adds a note of honey flavor to this smooth tasting tea.
