Reishi Mushroom Tea: Benefits & Recipes

Written by: Emilyn Gil 

I know what you’re thinking. Mushroom tea may not be a phrase that excites your taste buds or makes your mouth water. But hear me out! This is no ordinary fungus.

Hmm. Using the word fungus probably made matters worse.

Regardless of what you choose to call it, this ancient medicinal mushroom will win you over with its incredible benefits.

Reishi mushrooms have been used for over 2,500 years in Asia and other areas of the world. It was even reserved in China exclusively for royalty. Reishi has become famous for its incredible healing properties and was referred to as the mushroom of immortality.

What Can Reishi Mushrooms Do For Me?

All types and colors of reishi mushrooms have amazing benefits. However, the red reishi has the highest concentration of nutrients out of all of them and therefore, can do you the most good.

Red reishi mushrooms can provide relief from respiratory conditions and allergies, strengthen the immune system, assist in liver function and support the digestive system. They can reduce the risk of cognitive disorders and boost cognitive function.

Reishi can also increase energy, protect your heart and blood vessels and they have additional anti-aging properties. And that is just a taste of everything that reishi mushrooms can do for you!

Reishi Mushroom Tea

Now that we’ve established the power within the reishi mushroom, let’s move on to how you can put this little guy to good use.

You can find reishi mushrooms in many forms, including raw, dried whole, dried strips, powdered, or as an extract. The powder is best for reishi tea since most recipes will have you cut or grind them into smaller pieces anyway.

Once you have your reishi mushroom powder, it’s tea time! I’ve put together three of my favorite reishi mushroom tea recipes for you to try. Check them out!
