How It All Started
Hi! 👋 I’m Lopa. I had my first baby during the most stressful year of my life. (Trust me, it was one for the record books!)
Many moms guzzle coffee to get through the bone-deep exhaustion of early motherhood (no shade if that’s you!)...but my nervous system was frriiiieeed and coffee just gave me anxiety, panic attacks, & crap sleep.
I needed something that didn’t “steal energy from tomorrow to fuel today,” as Traditional Chinese Medicine says.
I tried *every* coffee alternative, but...meh. Chalky. Weak. Low-quality ingredients. No energy or functional benefits. So-called “natural” flavors that lacked OOMPH.
Worst of all? Fake adaptogens (yep, it’s a thing) and unsustainable ingredients. 😕 Hard no.
And So Rasa Was Born...
I took my decade-long personal devotion to Ayurveda and partnered with an herbalist to craft a dark, rich, and roasty coffee alternative, loaded with adaptogens.
What started with me elbow-deep blending herbs in my kitchen (+, let's be real, processing trauma and being a new, harried mom) has now served over 100,000 customers worldwide. I am deeply humbled & grateful to be able to share Rasa with you.
Cheers to your joy & love to your heart.
“Lovely, but...obsessive...nit-picky...annoyingly ethical”
That’s the feedback we get from our supply chain about our Chief Herbalist & Co-Founder, Ben.
(Side note: we love him for being such a pain in the a**.)
Our perspective? If it’s going into the bodies of our fellow humans, it better be impeccable.
We believe in right relationship. From the soils that feed our herbs, to the humans who harvest our botanicals, to our in-house team who packs each box—we do things right, even when it’s hard.
1. Sustainable Sourcing
We source over 50 botanicals from 15 countries, with an obsessive focus on long-term ecosystem sustainability, potency, geoauthenticity, & safety.
For example: don’t see wildharvested chaga in our ingredients? ...that’s because it’s endangered.
2. Purity & Testing
We use a wide range of strategic testing at 3rd party labs for pesticides, heavy metals, sulfites, allergens, & microbial contaminants. We don’t use grains, fillers, or any of that crap.
Wanna dig deeper? Check out our Quality Control Notion page for test results & more:
3. Social Responsibility
We buy fair-trade or direct trade, often paying better than fair trade prices.
And we develop close relationships with our suppliers around the world, building trust & friendship across our supply chain. #rightrelationship
Adaptogens are practically magical herbs that grow (and thrive!) in stressful environments. In short*, they help your body cope with stress by giving your body what it needs in the moment.
Exhausted? An adaptogenic herb will perk you up.
Wired as heck? That same adaptogenic herb will calm you down.
Yes, they really are that brilliant.
Adaptogens help you to freak out slower (& less intensely!), and recover faster in response to stress…all while increasing stress resilience overall.
They work via your endocrine and nervous systems to help you cope with stress better. Check out this fun graph from adaptogen scientist Alexander Panossian:
