Earth Elixir (5.75)

Average rating: 7/10 

This is another healthy drink at Forest Cafe. Targeted for those who want an alternative for caffeine, the Earth Elixir is perfect for those who can’t have caffeine or those who want a boost of energy. 

It includes a base of matcha or hojicha, a blend of mushroom, ashwagandha, and maca root powder, and finally steamed milk. The mushrooms include chaga, cordyceps, lion’s mane, and rei shi, boosting the immune system, mood, and focus. The ashwagandha root boosts energy and lowers stress, and finally, the maca root is a mood-boosting antioxidant. 

The drink was interesting to try. It tasted green and completely different from the normal espresso. It did taste bitter and grassy which many of us were not a big fan of. It definitely is an “earthy” drink that isn’t for most people. However, if you ever need a booster shot of energy in replacement of espresso, Earth Elixir is perfect for that.
