Dried reishi mushrooms are believed to have really impressive and extensive health properties, including anti-viral, anti-microbial, immune boosting, blood pressure lowering, and a laundry list of other properties. But, they also live up to the old stereotype of ultra-healthy food tasting bad. You know the stereotype that food artisans debunked over the last decade that said the better it is for you, the worse it tastes. Well, the stereotype was actually right when it comes to reishi. Let’s just say that reishi tea is supposedly really, really, really good for you.
Below are some great alternatives to the basic reishi tea recipe that bloggers have come up with. Each of them adds additional ingredients and flavors in order to make reishi much tastier without infringing upon its believed health benefits. All of them are excellent, but the reishi pomegranate tea recipe is our favorite.
