If you’re in need of a morning boost minus the jitters, this frothy tea-infused latte will perk you up with the soothing frothy texture of a latte – without the high-caffeine of coffee!
This tea latte takes things one step further in the health category, adding legendary chaga mushrooms to the mix, for an yummy latte that is chock-full of unique antioxidants. One of the most convenient ways to get the benefits of the chaga mushroom in your system is by sipping it in tea form. Chaga has a roasty flavor coffee lovers will delight in!
Jitter-Free with Black Tea
Black tea’s earthy flavor lends itself to standing out in a coffee-free latte, giving that same enjoyable flavor as a cup of joe. The English Breakfast variety of black tea steps in seamlessly, with a robust flavor that pairs well with a creamy companion like coconut milk. While it doesn’t have as much caffeine as coffee, English breakfast ranks high in caffeine in the tea world, so enjoy this latte in the morning or early afternoon for a pick-me-up.
Stress Less with Chaga
Chaga mushrooms are powerful adaptogens. Adaptogens are herbs, roots, and mushrooms that can help support calm. Adaptogens work by reducing sensitivity to environmental stress; that is anything that triggers you to feel out of sorts like intense physical activity, job stress, or any situation that may cause the stress hormone cortisol to be released.
To mimic that rich, creamy texture you would expect from a frothy latte, full-fat coconut milk is blended into the latte. Coconut milk has a thick, silky texture that is delicious to the tastebuds and comforting to the soul.
- 3 cups full-fat coconut milk
- 2 packets Chaga Elixir

- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Heat coconut milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until steaming, about 5 minutes. Pour coconut milk into a blender and add tea packets and honey. Blend on high speed for 5 seconds.
