The ancient “Mushroom of Immortality”. Fancy I know.
Lingzhi has long been associated with the God of Longevity in Chinese culture, alongside honourable mentions in Japanese and Korean culture. Ultimately, it’s because it works to fortify and regularise bodily functions whilst supporting the immune system given its antioxidant properties. This is why it’s revered in the realm of traditional medicine.
It’s said that the more bitter it is the more potent it is, so don’t be alarmed when you taste it in your coffee.
