The reishi mushroom, also known as the lingzhi mushroom, has been praised with many positive titles throughout history, including the “mushroom of immortality” and "divine mushroom". This highly respected toadstool makes its home in East Asia and has been an important part of Chinese culture for over 2,000 years. In fact, reishi is the oldest mushroom to be used among herbalists all over the world. Served raw, reishi mushroom is known to have a bitter, unpleasant taste. It is therefore almost exclusively served steeped in hot water as reishi mushroom tea. This herbal tea has a very subtle flavour, and many people prefer to complement it with honey or lemon to create a more intriguing herbal brew. Reishi mushroom is a natural source for vitamin C and vitamins B3 and B6, as well as minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus and manganese. With natural antioxidants and several other constituents, including protein, there is much to enjoy in a cup of reishi mushroom tea.
