Shiitake Uplift

Shiitake Uplift


Shiitake, Ginger, Citrus

Organic shiitake mushroom plays off the bright citrus notes of lemon peel and lemongrass, and ends with a smooth finish of delicious ginger and rooibos. This aromatic and uplifting blend makes a wonderful treat any time of day.

The word 'Shiitake' comes from the Japanese names for shii - oak, and take - mushroom.  Shiitake has been revered for its medicinal value since the Song Dynasty in China (1100 AD) and was prized as an ‘elixir of life’ by the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Shiitake's major active compounds are linked to anti-viral & anti-bacterial effects. 

 "Shiitake Uplift, has some earthiness, but ginger, lemongrass, and lemon peel give the drink a citrusy and bright taste."
