Feel like royalty with the mushroom known as the Mushroom of Immortality.
Reishi mushrooms have been revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years thanks to their high concentration of natural vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and adaptogens.
Reishi, scientifically known as Ganoderma lucidum, has been nicknamed the Mushroom of Immortality because of its perceived ability to promote longevity and vitality. The wonderful benefits don’t end there, though! Reishi carries the reputation of being spiritually potent, cleansing negative energy and so heavily used in the meditative experience in Daoism.
Using local, organic, and all-natural ingredients, Tamim Teas offers reishi mushroom tea blends with optimal functionality to allow you to unlock its many qualities — and with a delicious drink!
Fun fact: At one point in history, reishi mushrooms were so rare and sought after that they were reserved for royalty. You can feel like royalty, too, with our reishi tea blends, Reishi Delight and Reishi Chaga Boost.
