A Closer Look at Reishi
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 flavor, 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.
