Lily Mazzarella and I began our herbal adventures together over 10 years ago while earning our Masters of Science degrees in Herbal Medicine. Along that 3-year journey, we trained with international leaders in the field and got a whopping education in clinical herbal medicine, herbal safety, Ayurveda and nutrition. Since then, we have run Herb + Yoga retreats in Mexico, meditated silently together for 9 days, moved out west to pursue our careers, and cooked up dozens of tasty herbal concoctions...one so delicious, so sustaining — and for us, life-saving — that we decided to bring it out to the world.
Meet Reishi Roast.
It’s delicious. Reishi Roast (RR) is a robust, perfectly balanced blend of antioxidant herbs, medicinal mushrooms and superfoods formulated to give you clear, focused energy and whole body support. RR is highly medicinal and nourishes the nervous system, balances energy and supports your adrenals, immune system and detoxification. It has personally given me, and many of my clients, more balanced, even energy, improved sleep and supported our yoga and meditation practices with its deeply grounding energy.
Reishi alone is a classic and revered tonic, once reserved for royalty to extend life and improve health. Reishi is feel-good support from the deep woodlands, so earthy and rich it was meant to be brewed. Studies have found it to contain more than 400 active constituents that lend to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
We went ahead and combined Reishi with other powerhouse herbs including chaga mushroom, chicory root, dandelion root, milk thistle and milky oats, Mesquite pods, Cinnamon bark, Cacao & Himalayan Pink Salt. We spent over 5 years on this process until we created a blend that tasted so delicious that we knew it was time to share it with the world.
RR can be brewed with, or instead of, coffee turning your morning ritual into full-body medicine & lasting energy. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
