Here are a few of the best brands that offer clear focus, calm energy, and no caffeine crash. Plus, a long list of health benefits if that wasn't enough.

Best mushroom coffee alternatives
My favorite thing about MUD\WTR is the Chai flavor and the delicious taste of the blend of spices. This drink features an impressive list of the top mind-enhancing mushroom: Lion's Mane, Chaga, Reishi, and Cordyceps. It's vegan and organic.
I started drinking MUD\WTR in the morning in my protein shakes, and not only was it delicious, but it also gives me the calm-focused energy I need to start my day.

Matcha and mushroom drinks both have amazing nutritional profiles. But what if we could combine the two? Here are a couple Matcha WITH mushroom blends that I've tried and really liked!
Genius matcha is a blend of organic ceremonial grade matcha mixed with Lion's Mane and cordyceps mushroom extract. I really liked this blend.
The only downside is that it's kinda pricy compared to other ceremonial grade matcha blends.
This might be due to the added benefits of the Lion's Mane and cordyceps.
A 1.5g tin is $29.99 on Amazon.
I wish they had options for larger tins but at least you have save 5-15% if you sign up for Amazon's subscribe and save program.
- Ceremonial grade matcha
- Lion's Mane
- Cordyceps Mushroom
Naturealm Lion's Mane Mushroom Matcha Latte
This is a great budget option for a matcha and mushroom blend. It's available on Amazon and sometimes they even offer 50% off coupons!
In additional to matcha powder and Lion's mane, other ingredients include: organic coconut creamer, organic honey crystals, coconut milk powder, and organic gum acacia.

- USDA Organic
- 383mg Lion's Mane mushroom extract
