Choice Organic Teas introduced Shiitake Oolong Mushroom Wellness Tea into its Mushroom Wellness Teas collection, which launched in 2017.
Functional mushrooms continue to grow in the food and beverage market while products containing shiitake mushrooms increased 189% in sales in 2017 (SPINS). Mushrooms have long been used across cultures as traditional medicine to promote health and vitality. Modern research shows that medicinal mushrooms, which contain antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, can help modulate the body’s immune system and contribute to overall well-being.
Fair Trade Certified™, Non-GMO Project Verified, and always organic, Shiitake Oolong was formulated to promote a healthy metabolism and support immunity. The tea pairs shiitake mushrooms with synergistic herbs ashwagandha and eleuthero root, plus invigorating oolong and smoked black tea for an aromatic, savory taste. Shiitake encourages normal immunity and stimulates metabolism. Eleuthero root and ashwagandha support endurance and a balanced stress response. Oolong and lapsang souchong tea help boost your energy and provide antioxidants. It’s a rich and smoky cup with seductive hints of umami, sure to motivate and inspire.
This addition to the popular Mushroom Wellness Teas collection, which also includes Reishi Matcha, Shiitake Turmeric, Shiitake Maté, and 2018 NEXTY Awards finalist Reishi Detox, demonstrates Choice Organic Teas’ continued and consistent growth in the natural channel.
As with the entire Wellness Teas collection, Shiitake Oolong was specially formulated with the help of a master herbalist at Bastyr University and artfully crafted for taste by the sourcing and blending experts at Choice Organic Teas. The teas are classified as Herbal Dietary Supplements (HDS), indicating that the product has met FDA standards for quality and testing. All the teas are certified organic by QAI for USDA Organic certification.
