This tonic elixir is the quintessential drink for someone who is weaning off caffeine. Not only is it completely delicious, but it also has immune boosting and hormone balancing properties. It can even be made hot or cold. We use Tieman's Medium Ground Fusion Coffee because it is exceptionally gentle on the stomach and is ideal for people who have digestive issues with normal coffee. Tieman's is special because it has low acid and also boasts special ingredients like rooibos, goji berry and matcha. Interestingly, you cannot taste these individual treasures in the coffee, but you can feel their medicinal benefits in the form of zero jitters. However, coffee is still dehydrating, so drink enough water to supplement your body.
We also brew Raw Revelations Chaga Tea and add this earthy delectable to our elixir, as it pairs great with raw cacao and coffee. Chaga mushroom, known as the king of medicinal mushrooms, is a nutrient and antioxidant dense powerhouse of the mycelium species. It possesses almost shamanistic properties such as promoting a strong immune system, inhibiting tumor growth, lowering inflammation, preserving youth, and balancing “Chi.” It contains numerous antioxidant constituents such as melanin, betulinic acid, beta gluons, sterols, polyphenols and polysaccharides. It also contains essential vitamins B and D, calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc, to name a few. We choose to brew a large pot of Chaga tea by using two spoonfuls to every liter of filtered water. Then, boil on medium heat and simmer for 8 hours.
