Drinking Adaptogens Daily Can Help

The average human scores 8.2 out of 10 on the stress index.* We’re here to change that.

We want to help bring you back to equilibrium. Each of our blends features functional doses of adaptogens, a class of herbs that help you regulate your stress response. While they can’t pay your bills or tell your passive-aggressive boss to go to #$!*, they can help you cope with stress a little better.

*We made this up, but it sounds about right, no?


For immune support and calm

Reishi is the most famous of all medicinal mushrooms and is also considered an adaptogen. Ling zhi, reishi’s Chinese name, translates as “spirit plant,” named for the herb’s powerful ability to nourish the shen. Ancient Chinese sages considered this herb to be the key to immortality.


For mood support and stimulation

Rhodiola is a stimulating and energizing adaptogen that supports natural physical endurance and stamina while boosting brain power. Like many other adaptogens, rhodiola has emerged as a top-tier neuroendocrine-immune restorative herb for both acute and chronic stress (Holmes, 1989).


For endurance and capacity

Cordyceps is a powerful adaptogenic mushroom often used to boost energy, athletic performance, sexual function, and immunity. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, cordyceps is considered a lung and kidney tonic and thought to reinforce Qi, our vitality. Its action on the lungs may play a role in helping athletes increase endurance and speed.


For stress support, stamina, and sleep

This highly revered Ayurvedic herb is one of the few adaptogens that is also a calming nervine (meaning it works both in the moment and longer time), making it a unique option for deep energy and restoration. It is also one of the most studied adaptogens and the broad range of clinical trials gives us a glimpse into the somewhat counter-intuitive nature of adaptogens. For example, ashwagandha may both increase athletic performance and increase sleep efficiency.

not coffee, not tea, something better

Coffee=Crash, Rasa=Sustained Energy

In Chinese Medicine they say that coffee steals your energy from tomorrow to fuel today, and we’re just not down with that. We got to work and made a line of 9 blends that help build sustained energy while supporting a healthy stress response and overall wellbeing.

  • Is there sugar in any of your products?
    Nope, no sugar or sweeteners. Zero grams of sugar in every product. We figure if you want it sweet, you can do your thing & add your favorite sweetener.
  • Are your products gluten-free?
    Yep, all of our products contain zero grains or gluten-containing ingredients, and are produced in a gluten-free facility.
  • Where is Rasa made?
    Rasa is based out of Boulder, CO and manufactured in Denver, CO. We source our herbs from all over the world with an ever-increasing obsession for ethics and sustainability.
  • Is Rasa organic?
    Original, Cacao, & Dirty are Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth. The remaining blends have 85% organic herbs. We use non-organic herbs in the rare circumstance where organic is unavailable, or with things like adaptogen powerhouse shilajit, which is technically a rock & therefore can’t be certified organic.
  • Is Rasa Fair Trade?
    We buy Fair Trade or Direct Trade, which many consider better than Fair Trade. Buying direct allows us to have real, caring relationships with our suppliers.
  • Is Rasa Whole30-Approved®?
    Original, Cacao, Dirty, & Bold are Whole30-Approved®. Our other blends are not, due to the use of approximately .1% of cassava-derived dextrin or maltodextrin, which is in these products strictly because without a flow agent, the herbs will turn into a hard brick—and nobody likes hard-brick Rasa.
  • Can you drink Rasa during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

    Rasa was started by a mama who drank it during pregnancy & breastfeeding. However, while there is no scientific evidence saying the herbs in Rasa are unsafe for pregnancy and breastfeeding, there is also no evidence saying that they are safe, either—there’s just not enough information either way.

    Dozens of traditional herbalists, Chinese medicine practitioners, Ayurveda docs, and midwives support Rasa for pregnancy & breastfeeding, but listen to your body and your baby (& your own doc) to know what’s best for your unique situation.

    We don’t recommend Calm or Bold during pregnancy—these blends are too strong for the sensitive ecosystem of the pregnant mother & baby.

  • What are adaptogens, anyway ?

    We’re so happy you asked, because we literally wrote an (e-)book about this. Check out our Definitive Guide to Adaptogens here!

    The quick & dirty: adaptogens are a class of herbs used by indigenous cultures for millennia, but the name “adaptogen” was coined by Russian scientists in the 1940s who were looking to give elite athletes and supersoldiers an edge without the crash.

    Adaptogens strengthen your stress response system, literally exercising it so you can handle higher stress loads with more ease (just like lifting weights).

    Adaptogens can both stimulate & balance our cortisol, giving you more stable energy over time. Stress drains energy, so if you have less stress, you have more energy. Adaptogens have a cumulative effect, so take them daily & watch the benefits stack up!

  • What does Rasa taste like?

    Each of our blends are different in flavor & in function, but they all include our proprietary Digest & Detox™ that includes a roasty, robust combination of roasted roots of chicory, dandelion, burdock roots, and the world’s only organic roasted date seed.

    From there, our clinical herbalist Ben adds combinations of adaptogens, mushrooms, herbs, cacao, and aromatic botanicals for a unique flavor you can drink all day. Be sure to add your favorite creamer and try them all to find your favorites!

    You can also mix and match. Some staff-pick combos:

    • Dirty + Cacao
    • Calm + Super Happy Sunshine
    • Golden Chai + Bold
    • Spicy Rose + Dirty
