This is embodied energy. Deep energy. Focus without the hard edge. An easier access to flow.
This is Bold.
We set out to create a caffeine rush, without caffeine.
What we ended up with has redefined how we relate to energy.
Vikings had rhodiola. Siberian hunters had schisandra. Tibetan healers had cordyceps. Now we have Bold, a potent comprehensive formula designed for athletes, parents, entrepreneurs, creatives, & all of us navigating this intense modern world.
Formulation, at its best, creates an herbal product far greater than the individual herbs. And sometimes, far greater than what you thought you’d accomplish.
Thanks to 7 adaptogenic herbs,
BOLD potentiates your empowered, confident, best self.
Rich, smooth, and potent with a hint of cacao
Synergy exists when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 1+1 no longer equals 2 but maybe 3, 4, or 5 instead. This is seen throughout the natural world, where unlikely emergent behaviors frequently pop up out of complex systems. The field of herbal medicine is full of these examples as well.
We referenced dozens of adaptogen studies to create a powerful formula based on scientifically-backed dosages for 7 different adaptogens. To give our rich and roasted Rasa base that extra kick, we chose full-spectrum extracts. Unlike overly standardized extracts or isolates, full-spectrum extracts give the desired increase in potency while preserving the herbs’ natural ratio of compounds. This ensures that the safety and efficacy demonstrated for thousands of years of traditional practice still apply.
Behind the scenes: The Synergy Behind The Formula (i.e. the herbal nuances that make Bold amazing)
- Rhodiola 5% rosavins - 125 mg The Vikings used this root for endurance and strength. Enough said. Actually, we could go on for a long time…
- Eleuthero 10:1 - 125 mg An OG of the adaptogen world, this energy tonic is one of the most widely studied herbs in the world, with over 3000 studies to its name.
- Schisandra 8:1, 9% schisandrins - 125 mg Traditional hunters in the wilds of the Far East still chew these berries for extra energy and improved focus on the trail.
- Cordyceps 8:1 - 125 mg This powerful mushroom is an adaptogen all-arounder, boosting performance, immunity, sexual energy, and lung function.
- Lion’s Mane 8:1 - 125 mg A true brain tonic, this mushroom is revered for increasing mental agility.
- Gynostemma 12:1 - 125 mg Known as poor man’s ginseng, this leaf has more ginsenosides—the adaptogenic compounds—than ginseng itself!

Here’s what people have been saying:
“It’s buzzy, but doesn’t feel drug-like like caffeine. I’m addicted!” - Robyn Youkilis, Influencer
“This is even thicker and more “coffee-like.” Even my husband says it is much closer to coffee and tastes less “mushroomy” like the regular...blend he has tried. He is a huge coffee snob. This is something he would drink if he had to give up coffee.” - Amber S., NTP
“Clear. precise. energetic. powerful. expanding. luscious. full bodied...medicine. healing. the feeling of waking up to high quality fresh cinnamon rolls. nostalgic. warm. content. also a flavor of cinnamon rolls because of the tablespoon of sweet cream i added...like a glaze on top.” - Kelsey L.
“Bold is a nice combination of a rich and smooth blend with a hint of cacao.”
“It has a rustic taste like almost a dirty coffee.” - Malika
“It's definitely supporting my adrenals in this stressful time, and I can’t thank you enough for helping me to be able to continue to do that.” - Korrine F.
“Every time I get crappy sleep (#thankstoddler), I drink 2 cups of Bold in the morning and feel like a normal human again. It's uncanny. And a GODSEND!” - Lopa, Rasa’s founder
How To Brew
- Boil water.
- Add water & Rasa to French press (1 tbsp per 8 oz of water)*
- Wait 10-15 mins...or instead of just waiting there, because “a watched Rasa never brews,“ you can:
- meditate, dance
- meal prep
- clean your kitchen
- take a shower
- play with your pet unicorn
- Pour. Sip.
We think you’re going to love Rasa—so many people do! But if you tried them all with your favorite creamer and didn’t find one you love? We won’t judge (okay, we will try not to, promise).
Here’s how it works: if you’re dissatisfied with a sample pack, we will give you 100% of your money back on your first sample pack order. If you bought an 8oz or 2lb bag (one-time purchases or first subscription orders only) and are dissatisfied, we will give you a full refund in the form of store credit.
All you have to do is ask nicely! (And we mean that: in this age of unkindness-from-behind-a-screen, we feel that common courtesy and basic human respect are important values to uphold).
This is my go to blend! Its awesome especially for those of us who love the taste of Starbucks!
I first bought Rasa bold to ween off coffee. It was a fully effective strategy. Now I actually enjoy it more than coffee. I drink it “bulletproof” style, that is: with a tablespoon of coconut cream, teaspoon of coconut oil, 5g collagen, and a sprinkle of salt. It’s rich and creamy and delicious.
I made this for the first time today in a French press and it is amazing. Good flavor, works like a CHARM, and didn’t crash at all. Obsessed. I feel like I could do calculus while reading Dostoevsky in the original Russian right now.
In general, I do love your products - the taste, the effect, the care you take with sourcing quality ingredients
However, I’m not so sure about the new formulas that have substituted heshouwou with maca - a substance which sometimes comes with unwanted side effects for some people - I’m still experimenting with the new formula
However, the Bold has another ingredient that doesn’t work for me (lions mane) personally so I’ve reverted back to the original formula but, although acceptable, I must say the older original formula with the heshouwou made me feel better
Not to be deterred I’ve now ordered your Sunshine formula which, I am told, doesn’t yet contain the maca
Will report on that after I’ve tried it
Also am I to understand that when all the new formulas are in place only the Chai will not contain maca?
I look forward to trying the chai as well
Since I’ve already spent so much $$ trying different formulas can you send me a sample of your chai formula?
I’d like to give the Bold more stars except for the 2 ingredients mentioned above
I’m sure Lions Mane is an excellent ingredient- it just makes me constipated
The maca, if too strong, interferes with restful sleep - I notice that’s been reported elsewhere on line although probably not a problem for most people
I really like this stuff and miss it when I run out. that's why I subscribed, but I still run out for a few days some months. What I don't want is to be asked to write another review every time I receive my order.
