Welcome To The DIRTEA World

Congratulations, you’ve found your way into the future of feeling incredible mother nature style

Whether you’re a mushroom tea nerd who's clued up on the facts, or a fungi novice sent here by the wellness guru in your Whatsapp group breathe a sigh of relief. Your health, focus and energy levels are all about to be turbocharged thanks to the transformative power of mushroom tea. So, pop the kettle on and prepare to fall in love with nature’s little healers, just as our founders and growing communitea did, too.  

Old as dirt

Let’s start with a history lesson. We’ll keep it brief and upbeat; we promise. Fungi have existed for wait for it over a billion years. How can you not respect them? Unsurprisingly, humans have been forever fascinated by these little forest wonders with many different cultures around the world using fungi for food, medicine and natural immunity, fending off illness and disease with their powerful, infection-fighting enzymes. It’s not hard to see why so many people have discovered these incredible mushroom benefits either they make up 25% of the world’s biomass. That’s a lot of mass! Today, the world is waking up once more to the unexpected magic of mushrooms, particularly as part of a daily tea ritual. It’s how our founders discovered them back in 2016, as part of a mushroom tea ceremony that would change the course of their lives with the birth of DIRTEA. And here we all are today, ready to clink teacups with our powdered mushroom tea of choice. 


Source of life

Fun fact: No fungi? No trees. And we’re sure everyone knows how that story ends. But it really is quite simple: without mushrooms, the trees just wouldn’t grow. With an intricate mushroom network growing underground, they communicate with the forest, fixing and feeding the plants and trees that need replenishing the most. This is why they’re lovingly referred to as nature’s engineers or perhaps a little more seriously as immune modulators. We’ll leave you to choose the one that suits your vibe. Playing this pivotal role deep in our forest, mushrooms are essentially responsible for the natural world as we know it. Mind-blowing, right? But we can all learn something from the intuitive, symbiotic relationship between trees and mushrooms, as we seek to listen to our minds and bodies more turning to natural goodness and holistic remedies, as and when we need them. Why? So we can get stronger, healthier and ultimately start to thrive. 


The need-to-know stuff

Just like the forests, you too can nurture and adopt an ancient practice of mushroom tea as part of your daily routine, with our DIRTEA powdered mushroom drinks. We’ve whittled over 150,000 different mushroom species down to our big four functional fungi: Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps and Reishi.

Not that kind of fun(gi)

While the mushroom benefits are endless, you won’t find psychedelic properties on our list. We don’t use those types of mushrooms in our DIRTEA drinks although we do think the incredible impact DIRTEA can have on your health is pretty magical.
