It’s been a while since I’ve shared a review, but I’m back with a fun one for you all today!
Over the past few months I’ve been drinking tea again, I forgot how much I enjoyed the whole experience of making and drinking hot tea in the mornings. So in my quest to branch out from the basics, I wanted to sample this Chaga tea from Buddha Teas.
I read through so many amazing reviews and to be honest, when I saw “King of Mushrooms” my interest was officially peaked. The benefits alone had my attention though.
Chaga Tea Benefits
- Rich Source of Antioxidants
- Rich Source of B Vitamins
- Offers Essential Minerals
“As its nicknames suggest, chaga mushrooms have much more to offer than a tasty herbal tea. This herbal tea is practically a treasure trove with the wealth of nutrients it provides. Chaga is a natural source of B vitamins, and has exceptionally high levels of vitamin B5. This is because chaga mushrooms absorb the B vitamins from the birch trees they grow on. Its mineral content includes copper, potassium, manganese, iron, zinc, calcium and selenium. Chaga is also known to provide a variety of antioxidants, and its prime constituents include flavonoids, amino acids, fiber, melanin and triterpenoids. All of this merely demonstrates a handful of what can be found in chaga.”
Now I haven’t been drinking it long enough to validate those claims, but I can say it has made for a wonderful start to my days. Especially when I brew a quart worth and add 4 tbsp. of chia seeds to it. I’ve been doing that and letting it refrigerate overnight to allow time for the tea to cool and the chia seeds to expand. It’s so good! Thats what’s pictured on the intro to this post.
To give you a little more background on this particular tea, here’s some information pulled from their website
“In the world of both mushrooms and herbal tea, chaga is truly one of a kind. It in no way resembles the kind of mushrooms most are familiar with; instead, this mushroom grows mainly on birch trees, and its appearance could easily be mistaken for a growth of burnt bark. In spite of such an odd appearance, this mushroom has a long history of cultivation, and is greatly respected in the herbal world. Chaga has earned a number of dynamic titles, such as “The King of Mushrooms” and the “Diamond of the Forest”. It can be found in birch forests almost everywhere, including Russia, Korea, some parts of Europe, the northern U.S. and Canada.“
What I love most about this tea, health benefits aside – is the rich flavor. I use to be an avid coffee drinker, because that taste was something I throughly enjoyed, but it always upset my stomach and made me super jittery. I’m finding now that I can drink something that’s caffeine-free but still gives me that depth I’m looking for.
Now I’m not saying this tea tastes like coffee, but I am saying it’s stronger than your typical cup of tea.
Side note, I also adore the fact each tea bag has a little message for you. I think that’s such a fun way to be inspired while you’re brewing it.
Buddha Teas has an impressive collection to choose from, my mind was baffled by the amount of options available. I plan on trying out many more from them!
Currently I also have their Chai tea and that’s what I used in my recipe that’s going live tomorrow morning. If you love a good chai, their’s is one of the best I’ve ever had.
If you’re an avid tea drinker, looking from something new to try – then I would highly recommend the Chaga from Buddha Teas. If you’re not quite ready for that, they have tons of other flavors to choose from. So check them all out! I’ll leave all their information below.
Buddha Teas contacted me through Instagram and I’m very happy they did. I keep transparency with my readers/followers so I want you all to know when I’m sent something for review. However, please know that if I take the time to share it – that means I 100% stand by the product(s) and my views align with the company I’m promoting.5
