Getting off coffee is a hard-fought battle — we know, because we’ve been there. Products like Rasa are your shield in that battle.
Rasa original is made with a blend of 12 organic adaptogens, including ashwagandha and mushrooms like reishi and chaga. And while it nixes the caffeine and its accompanying jitters, it’s just as easy to brew as a cup of coffee.
Whip out your French press, or brew it with any of the other tools you use to make coffee. It tastes amazing with something creamy, so add in some coconut milk, almond milk, or any of your favorite coffee creamers.
As for the taste, we find it to be a bit earthy, rich, and bitter. It has all the familiar trappings of coffee, but we prefer the calm, cool energy Rasa proffers any day.

To make Rasa with your French press, simply add 1 tbsp. of Rasa per 8 ounces of water. Boil your water, and brew as you typically would. Wait 10 to 20 minutes — we recommend you use this time for a bit of self-care.
For other brewing methods, consult the handy Rasa brew guide.
Coffee addiction is real. In fact, caffeine is the most commonly used drug in the world. And while some people can sip on the occasional cup of joe with no side effects, many of us have come to depend on caffeine like a drug.
We can become dependent on caffeine through a number of mechanisms, including needing its energy jolt, reinforcement and taste preference. Ultimately, we might drink coffee just to counteract the symptoms of withdrawal. Ever drank a cup of coffee to rid yourself of a headache and brain fog? Yeah, that might be a symptom.
Excessive coffee consumption can result in tolerance, where our bodies need more and more coffee to reach functional. Of course, fighting through this addiction can be brutal.
That’s why Rasa is such a god-send. With adaptogenic herbs, it provides even-keeled energy that isn’t accompanied by a side of addiction. Just zen.
