Insomnia gets the best of us — especially when our hormones are out of balance — and sometimes, chamomile tea won’t cut it. Reach for Pique Tea’s potent reishi calm elixir, formulated especially by traditional Chinese herbalists to promote sleep and rest.
This elixir gets its relaxing effect from the “Queen of Mushrooms,” reishi. The mushroom has long been used by East Asian herbalists to treat insomnia, though it’s also proved beneficial for hormone balance, anxiety and depression, treating menopause symptoms, and more.
Joining reishi are complementary plants like jujube dates, goji berries, and organic monk fruit. This blend is low in sugar, and suitable for keto and Paleo diets. It’s also uber-easy: Just dissolve the tea crystals in hot water. Go ahead and add your favorite nut milk for a creamy mouthfeel.
Pique Tea uses only the purest, highest quality materials and is the only Triple Toxin Screened tea on the market, meaning you can sip without fear of consuming pesticides, heavy metals, or toxic mold.
We love the smooth, sweet flavor of this elixir, with a hint of bitterness and underlying date flavor. Drink it later in the day when you need to wind down or enjoy a night of restful sleep.
Organic jujube date
Organic goji berry
Organic monk fruit
Dissolves in hot water only. We recommend 170°F when consuming hot.
This tea is best consumed in the evenings, when you’re winding down or looking to promote relaxation and restful sleep.
Some mushrooms, including reishi, may not be the best for those whose immune system is Th1 dominant, like those with Hashimoto’s, IBS, IBD, PCOS, Type 1 Diabetes, Lupus and Celiac disease. Use your own discretion.
Reishi, also called Lingzhi mushroom, has quite the reputation for its relaxation-promoting effects. Animal studies have shown that it’s effective at promoting sleep, while a study in breast cancer patients found it to reduce depression and anxiety. This elixir harnesses the calming properties of reishi and combines it with complementary plants according to centuries-old traditional Chinese herbalist formulas.
You can rest assured you’re consuming that formula, and that alone. Many teas on the market are contaminated with harmful chemicals like resin, nylon, thermoplastic, PVC or polypropylene. Pique Tea screens for these with a Triple Toxin Screen, and adheres to USDA Organic expectations.
Pique Tea uses a process called Cold Brew Crystallization to make their crystals. They use cold brewing to preserve the antioxidants of their ingredients because excess heat can damage them. Once brewed, the water is removed through low-temperature dehydration and pressure and you’re left with potent tea and elixir crystals.
Cold Brew Crystallization method, our teas deliver up to 12x the antioxidants and are Triple Toxin Screened for heavy metals, pesticides, and toxic mold.
