We’ve got something for everyone! Whatever flavor you choose-Matcha, Cacao, Coffee or Mocha-we’ve created every latte with frothy oat milk, 1,000mg of functional mushroom extracts and just a pinch of coconut palm sugar. 100% Organic.
What’s NOT in it? Gums, fillers, stabilizers, refined sugar, dairy, acacia, stevia, we could go on….
Mushrooms are nature’s original and most studied superfood. About 40% of Western medicines today, including penicillin, are derived from mushrooms.
Functional mushrooms are adaptogens, which help the body adapt to stress and provide support where it’s lacking, acting like a thermostat; calming you down or boosting you up, depending on what your body needs.
All functional mushrooms contain beta glucans, which provide powerful immune support among other benefits. Mushrooms such as Lion’s Mane, Chaga and Reishi have been used by physicians for millennia for their ability to support immunity, cognitive function, restore hormonal balance, tame inflammation, and much more.
Adaptogens are classified as herbs, minerals and mushrooms that help protect the body from stress. In addition, functional mushrooms not only increase immunity but act as immunoregulators. This means that they calm an overactive immune system when stressed and increase its activity when sluggish.
Adaptogens must meet certain criteria including being relatively non-toxic, working through the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary/adrenal axis) and SAS (sympathoadrenal system), and regulating organs and system functions.
These intelligent compounds work on a cellular level, increasing our cells’ ability to respond to stress.
It tastes like a miracle in your mouth. Kidding/not kidding.
Our Coffee latte tastes like coffee! Our Matcha latte tastes like matcha. Our Turmeric latte tastes like turmeric and spices. ...you get the idea.
What it does NOT taste like is mushrooms. We promise:) Actually, we promise so hard, if you don’t like it, we’ll give you your money back.
This depends on which latte you're enjoying. Our Coffee latte has 90mg of caffeine, which is about the equivalent of one cup of coffee. The Turmeric is caffeine free, the Matcha has about 70mg and the Mocha weighs in around 100mg.
We use the good stuff -- 100% organic coconut palm sugar.
Two major points to address here: dosage and beta glucans.
1) We use twice as much extract in our product than the vast majority of those on the market. Each serving contains an impressive 1,000mg of functional mushroom extract -- a true and potent dose!
2) Because this powerful kingdom is currently unregulated, a lot of companies are using mycelium and labeling their products “mushroom.” Mycelium is the root structure of the mushroom, not to be confused with the fruiting body -- which is the actual mushroom you see above ground. The highest concentration of beta glucans is in the fruiting body, not the mycelium! So, not only is it misleading, this cheap product is not delivering the good stuff. In fact, in most cases, mycelium is grown on grain or rice (think Tempeh) and then all ground up together and sold to you as a “mushroom” product.
Beta glucans are fibers found in the cells of certain types of mushrooms. There are about 300-400 species of mushrooms that have been identified with having medicinal properties. Beta glucans help our immune system work at its peak performance. In addition to boosting and regulating our immune system, each mushroom contains its own special beta glucan, each enhancing the immune system in a slightly different way. Some have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer and cardio-protective properties.
It’s important to note here that you should make sure when ingesting any mushroom product that it is made using the fruiting body (the actual mushroom that you see above ground) and not the cheap mycelium (the root structure of the mushroom), which does not contain adequate amounts of beta glucans, and cannot technically be called a mushroom.
These are not the “trippy” kind, you’re thinking of psilocybin. We use functional or “medicinal” mushrooms.
Any time you like! Have a Coffee latte with Chaga in the morning to get that brain firing, a Mocha latte with Cordyceps before a workout or a Cacao with Reishi in the evening to relax.
Nope! You can store it at room temperature, which is good news for those of us who like to stock up.
But we do recommend you drink it chilled!
We recommend starting with one latte a day and then increasing once you get a feel for it. Once you are comfortable with how you’re feeling you can increase to meet your needs. And you don’t have to stick with just one type of mushroom at a time -- you can mix and match!
We recommend that you speak to your child’s pediatrician or health care provider before giving them any earth & star products.
We recommend you consult your healthcare provider before consuming any earth & star products. It’s especially important to use caution and listen to your body when consuming any natural herbs or supplements during pregnancy/nursing.
As with any new program, we encourage you to consult your doctor before incorporating mushrooms into your daily regimen.

This is a marathon, not a sprint. All adaptogens, from Ashwaghanda to Ginseng to Reishi, require a loading process, which just means that they need to build up in your system before you feel their benefits - this is why it’s important to consume them daily or however regularly you can. So, if anyone suggests that you should feel the effects of adaptogens immediately, you can tell them they are full of Shiitake.
In general, give it a couple weeks to kick in.
About 6 months unopened. Once you open it you should consume it that same day.
