Classic Rasa vs. Coffee

Coffee Classic Rasa
Energy Caffeine, leaving you with jitters and a crash Energizes from within using adaptogens
Caffeine 90-120mg+ of caffeine per cup Caffeine free
Featured Ingredients Um, coffee 🤷 Adaptogens & Mushrooms
(formulated at an effective dose)
Formulation It's only one ingredient, so... By a clinical herbalist
(for balance, flavor, and functionality)
Sourcing & Sustainability Sometimes fair trade or direct trade Meticulously sourced for quality, bioavailablity, and long-term ecosystem sustainability

A cup of “I can do this,” Classic Rasa is our antidote to an overburdened, overly stressed world.

2750mg of adaptogens support smooth energy without a crash, better sleep, a more resilient stress response, and more so you can be more you—and it’s ready the moment you need it. Whether you’re running out the door to go to work, sitting at the airport, boiling water over a fire while camping, or just have a quick moment in the morning with a busy schedule, Classic Rasa is instantly ready when you are.

With Classic Rasa, you get your daily dose of adaptogens and mushrooms without the brew time. Simply add it to your cup, followed by boiling water, and presto change-o… Rasa. Our original line of Rasa brew products are the ultimate self-nourishing ritual. And while we’re all for Rasa brew on mornings where we have 10 minutes to be intentional about taking care of ourselves, Classic Rasa is there for you on those days where you gotta get out the door as quickly as possible (or out of your tent, or boarding a plane…).

Meet the Herbs

The six adaptogens in this blend were intentionally chosen for potency and balance. Totaling more than 2750mg of adaptogens per serving (raw herb equivalent), Classic Rasa delivers focused and sustained energy without the crash.

While energy and stress management are the driving force of the adaptogens in this blend, many of these herbs also profoundly support improved immunity, sleep, mood, and digestion when taken regularly.

Formulated by our Chief Herbalist, Classic Rasa features six adaptogens for energy: red Asian ginseng, cordyceps, rhodiola, gynostemma, shatavari, and maca, plus chicory, date seed, and burdock for that roasty, full-bodied mouth feel.

What does Classic Rasa taste like?

We’re going to go ahead and say it: Classic Rasa is the most coffee-like coffee alternative out there. It’s robust, roasty, and rich. The dark richness of roasted chicory root, the sweet coffee notes of roasted date seed, and the earthy, nutty flavor of roasted burdock root make up the base of these blends, while the adaptogenic herbs add further roundness, sweetness, and herbal notes.

Wellness doesn’t have to taste like dirt…that’s why we created Rasa.

It took us years to perfect Classic Rasa. Here’s how it went:

We spent (literally) years testing all the instant coffee alternatives out there, and there were approximately none, zero, nilch that we willingly wanted to consume every day, let alone enjoyed enough to crave. We heard time and time again that you didn’t want that sludge at the bottom of your cup, not to mention as an herbalist-formulated brand, we cringed at the lack of bioavailability in most powdered “functional” drinks.

So we set out to do the seemingly impossible: make an instantly dissolvable adaptogenic coffee alternative that tastes as good as it is functional. One that you crave the same way so many crave coffee when you wake up in the morning (sound familiar?).

What this entailed was far more complex than “powdering” our existing Rasa and selling it, so it took us years of development to crack the code. Our process includes brewing the Rasa over several hours like a standard Chinese decoction—a process used for millennia—then drying it and granulating it to make it supremely delicious while remaining supremely dissolvable and bioavailable.

Classic Rasa FAQ

Classic Rasa is instantly dissolvable—just add water! It features red Asian ginseng, which is not used in any of our Brew line products, and is one of the most energizing of all adaptogens. Functionally, Classic Rasa is somewhere between Rasa Original & Rasa Bold, and perfect for when you don't have a moment to brew either in a French press. We recommend our Brew products as a slower morning ritual to nourish your wellbeing. Ultimately, the choice is yours, though we highly recommend having both Rasa and Rasa Brew on hand so you choose your own adventure depending on your time, needs, and cravings.

Acacia fiber is a prebiotic fiber made from the sap of acacia trees. These trees are native to North Africa, and our organic acacia fiber is from Senegal. Acacia fiber, also known as gum arabic, has been used for thousands of years in cosmetics, foods, and medicines around the world. Queen Cleopatra was even a fan—it was a main ingredient in her favorite lipstick.

Acacia fiber's modern uses are many. We use it in Classic Rasa as a processing aid to help our product clump less and flow better. And it's a win-win because acacia fiber is also an excellent health-promoting dietary fiber. Plus it improves soil fertility and animal habitat.

Each box contains 12 individual packets of Classic Rasa.
Patience, young grasshopper. To be honest, we can't wait for Classic Rasa to be available for subscription either. At the moment this is a very limited production run, so we don't have enough inventory to enable subscriptions. Don't worry, it's coming down the line!
We want that too! Here's the scoop: we literally took years to develop this product, and couldn't wait to get it into your hands. With all the work it took to perfect the product, we have not yet completed our shelf-life trials for a bulk option. We want to make sure it lasts and doesn't turn into a hard brick you can't use before we sell it to you in this way. So we made the call to get Classic Rasa out into the world first in single-serve packets, and then hopefully in bulk once we confirm it can be done without sacrificing the quality of the product and your experience.
While you might not mistake Classic Rasa for coffee, we'd be as bold to say that it is the most coffee-like tasting coffee alternative that you can find. It's roasty, rich, bold, and dark, and gives off some strong coffee vibes. We think it will scratch your coffee itch. If you're looking for something even more coffee-like, try Café Rasa, which has Fair Trade coffee + Classic Rasa all-in-one (with 60mg of caffeine).
Nope, Classic Rasa is 100% caffeine-free. Looking for a caffeinated option? Try Café Rasa, which is Classic Rasa + Fair Trade, organic coffee.
Heck no. We spent years developing this process to avoid that, and to ensure it is as smooth, rich, and roasty as a cup of coffee. Classic Rasa dissolves beautifully in your cup!

Adaptogens are a class of herbs that help the body adapt to and defend against the toxic effects of stress: they are nature's antidote to stress. They work systematically in the body to balance, restore, and protect. When you're experiencing less stress, your body functions better—better sleep, digestion, libido…you get the jist.

These herbs survived the Ice Age and still live in some of the harshest conditions around the world: they've learned to not only be resilient in the face of stress, but to thrive. In turn, they can help us do the same.

In short: we like to say adaptogens help you human better.

While adaptogens are a powerful group of herbs, they must be consumed consistently and in functional doses for long term stress support. That's why we're proud to be herbalist-formulated to ensure the highest quality of herbs, sound formulation, and efficacy!

Learn more about the history and science behind adaptogens (yeah, we wrote a whole 25+ page guide!) at

Unfortunately we do not recommend Classic Rasa for pregnancy and nursing due to the extracts used in the blend.

But of course. As with all Rasa products, Classic Rasa is blessed by grass-fed unicorns*.

*Grass-fed unicorns not approved by the FDA.

We wish. We're working on that formulation to be released in 2057. For now, you can rest assured that all Rasa products feature potent doses of adaptogens to help you cope with the stressors in your life, even if you can't eliminate them.

The best alternative to coffee

I have tried many herbal coffee alternatives but none compare to Rasa’s Classic Herbal Roast, especially that it now comes in the instant variety.

Sara (Texas, United States)
much simpler for afternoon pick up

It's nice to have something for when i want to sip on something in the afternoon to boost my energy without making me jittery. It's so easy to make.

Fabiana D.
Classic Herbal Roast

As someone who avoids caffeine, this blend of adaptogens gives me the perfect boost to start my day and makes me feel grounded. My whole body feels nurtured by it. I feel I’m taking very good care of my adrenal system with Rasa Herbal Roast blend.

Heather Y. (North Carolina, United States)
Classic for the win!

I cut coffee a while ago, but not caffeine. Recently on my health journey, I had to completely cut caffeine, and the Instant Rasa Classic has been my saving grace! Organic unsweetened coconut milk added for creaminess and I’m golden for the day after one cup!

Diane S. (New Mexico, United States)
So yummie

It sues my desire for an occasional coffee without the caffeine and getting the Microbiome healthy so I love it! The favorite part is I don’t have to brew it for 15 minutes. I can just pour in boiling water and it’s ready to go.
