Servings 4


  • Liquid measuring cup and measuring spoons
  • Medium stove-pot
  • Fine sieve or tea strainer
  • Mason jars for storage
  • Mug(s) for sipping!



  • Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  • When it starts to bubble, reduce to low, cover loosely and simmer for ~20 minutes.
  • Let it cool then strain out all the herbs.
  • Sweeten with 1 tablespoon of raw honey or real maple syrup (or sweetener of choice).
  • Add some milk or unsweetened milk substitute of choice to lighten the bite!


Enjoy this tea by the cup, 1 to 3x daily.  You may enjoy this at any time of day. 
You can also make this tea with just one adaptogen (1 tablespoon of just ashwagandha or shatavari instead of 1/2 tablespoon of each). 
  • For a high-energy adaptogen tea option without any caffeine, you may like to replace the ashwagandha or shatavari with "Siberian gineseng" (eleuthero) which has a mild flavor and will boost your energy for a while!
