Tea Blend of the Month: Better Than Coffee

All natural energy, none of the jitters

Better Than Coffee is an herbal coffee substitute reminiscent of our favorite morning beverage but caffeine (and caffeine-crash) free. Power packed herbs like Ashwagandha and Maca are paired with roasted Chicory and Dandelion root to provide all natural energy with the flavor profile of your favorite dark roast.

Chaga Mushroom has been used for centuries to support mental clarity and endurance, and is overall balancing to the immune system, while bitter chocolate notes of Cacao add a deep richness to your morning boost.

Brewing Instructions: Combine 2 cups of water with 2-3 teaspoons of Better Than Coffee in a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil, and immediately reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 10-20 minutes. Turn off heat and strain. Enjoy on it’s own or however you take your coffee!

Ingredients: Chicory Rt, Roasted Dandelion Rt, Maca Rt, Chaga Mushroom, Dandelion Rt, Ashwagandha Rt, Cacao.

Nicole Worthington has been drawn to the Pacific Northwest much of her life, but finally made the jump to Portland a few summers back. With a background in cooking, Yoga, and the healing power of food, Herbalism has been a wonderful addition to her life energetically and physically. The plants have provided much solace and healing during a time of loss and grief, as well as providing overall balance in the body and mind. Nicole is confident that Herbalism is the Peoples’ Medicine, and by making a cup of tea you are already denying oppressive systems that reject self care and complete wellness. Nicole has learned much from the plants and spends time honoring, listening, and being open to all the wisdom they have to offer. Nicole feels blessed to continue her journey with all the beautiful beings here at The Herb Shoppe and is excited to share the knowledge and insight she has learned with an open heart and mind.

When Nicole is not learning from the plants, she can be found immersed in a thrift store, goofing around with friends, or listening to records while playing in the kitchen. :)
