Red Reishi Slices

Our high quality and potent dried red reishi (ganoderma lucidum) mushrooms come from the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido which is known for its expansive forests and agriculture. Red reishi mushrooms are rare in the wild. However, new technologies over the past few decades have allowed these mushrooms to be grown in a controlled environment so they are no longer only enjoyed by royalty and the elite.

 

The Emperors of Japan believed the reishi mushroom granted them immortality and today the Japanese government officially recognizes reishi as a cancer treatment. The benefits of this mushroom come from water-soluble polysaccharides known as beta-glucans. These molecules are believed to stimulate the immune system to fight infection and foreign cells, lower blood pressure and stabilize blood sugar.

 

When preparing the tea we recommend to rinse 3-4 grams of reishi first, then gently simmer on low heat in 1 litre of water for 0.5-2 hours depending on the strength required. You can adjust this ratio according to your preference. Use a stainless steel or ceramic pot (not aluminium) and keep covered during the preparation. The woody texture of red reishi makes it fairly firm therefore it is advised to simmer for an extended period to unlock the nutrients and create an effective tonic. The tea brewed from red reishi is pleasantly woody and slightly bitter and is best enjoyed with a hint of honey. It can be added to smoothies or other drinks. You can make approximately 6 litres of a potent tea with a packet of our reishi slices. NET WT: 25g

Reishi Mushroom Tea

The red reishi mushroom, also known as lingzhi, (ganoderma lucidum) enjoys special reverence in East Asia where it has been used in traditional medicine for many centuries. Reishi has earned a number of dynamic titles, such as “The Mushroom of Immortality”, “The Mushroom of the Kings” and the “Soul/Spirit Mushroom”.

 

The medical benefits of reishi are well documented. The benefits of this tea come from water-soluble polysaccharides known as beta-glucans. These molecules are believed to stimulate the immune system to fight infection and foreign cells, lower blood pressure and stabilize blood sugar.

 

This very subtle woody tea can be enjoyed on its own or with a hint of lemon or honey. We recommend to brew for 15-25 minutes for increased potency. Each of the 18 unbleached tea bags is individually wrapped and contains 100% pure organic red reishi. Make this greatly respected traditional medicine a part of your daily routine. NET WT: 18g
