MUD\WTR is pretty much the best substitute for coffee that you can ultimately get.
What is mud?
MUD\WTR is a blend of masala chai, cacao and adaptogenic mushrooms. It has a hall-of-fame ingredients list: Lion’s mane for focus, chaga and reishi to support a healthy immune system, cordyceps to promote natural energy, turmeric and cinnamon for their antioxidants, and cacao for mood and energy. It's 100% organic with zero sneaky sweeteners added.
With 1/7 the caffeine as a cup of coffee, you get focus and energy without the jitters, crash and $hitty sleep.
The result? You, but superhuman.
Some dirty secrets.
Take a tablespoon and drop into hot water. Add whatever you like. Some do it with a dab of honey, others get frothy with their favorite milk. You can add some coconut oil and it goes great in smoothies. But don’t be afraid to keep it OG and drink it straight up. Ya done? OK, now stir it up. Yeah, stir real well before enjoying like the legend you are.
Certified and lab tested.

Our mushrooms are grown in Carlsbad, California by M2 Ingredients. We use solid-state fermentation to grow the full cycle of the mushroom including mycelial biomass and fruiting bodies, which are cultured on certified organic, gluten-free, whole-grain oats sourced from farms in rural Canada.
Organic mushroom blend (chaga, reishi, lion’s mane, cordyceps mycelial biomass cultured on organic oats), Organic cacao, Organic Spice Blend (organic cinnamon, organic turmeric, organic ginger, organic cardamom, organic black pepper, organic nutmeg, organic cloves), Organic black tea powder, Himalayan pink salt.
1⁄7th the caffeine of a cup of coffee.
This white, shaggy mushroom resembles a mass of brain neurons. Fitting, because lion’s mane is a powerful nootropic that supports memory and focus.
Lion’s mane has got your back whether you’re grinding at work, training for a freestyle rap battle, or just want to decrease the number of times a week you walk into a room and ask yourself, “Why’d I come in here again?”
When the bases are loaded and you want to knock oxidative stress into the stands, chaga is the crack of the bat.
Chaga contains a variety of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that offer a potent source of antioxidants and nutrients.
In Chinese medicine, reishi is hailed as the mushroom of immortality and the elixir of life. It's packed with immune-supporting beta-glucans, a polysaccharide that supports a healthy immune system.
We’re not legally allowed to say that reishi will make you live forever, but only because the FDA is still arguing over time zones.
First discovered in the high Himalayas by yak shepherds of the Mykonos tribe, cordyceps promote energy. The shepherds noticed that in the springtime, as the yaks feasted on cordyceps, they would begin rutting in a mad sexual frenzy. The shepherds wanted a piece of that mojo (naturally) and started brewing the mushroom to promote vitality.
Drink some, then cue up some Bill Withers. You’ll see.
Cacao has been hailed as the “food of the gods” because it has more antioxidants than any other food on the planet. It also includes theobromine, a mild stimulant, that energizes without the jitters.
Cacao gives you that crisp energy. You know, like an alpine lake, finger snap, or Bill Withers’ voice.
(Wow, these guys love Bill Withers.)
In Hindi, the word “chai” literally means “tea.” And if you walk along the busy streets of Mumbai in the searing summer heat, you’ll pass street vendors called chaiwalas (tea people) serving the spicy stuff. With its electric flavor profile, chai is what gives mud its soul.
When try-out day arrived for our stand-out team of ingredients, turmeric was a promising talent. When paired with black pepper (also on the team), the duo showed the ability to support the body's management of oxidation and serve as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Joining an all-star squad that aims to leave you superhuman, turmeric has been on the team ever since.
Mud doesn’t have any sneaky sweeteners and cinnamon helps you fight off sugar cravings throughout the day. Cinnamon contains phenolic compounds, flavonoids and antioxidants that make it one of the most beneficial spices on the planet.
Salt might be the last thing you want in an open wound but it’s essential for your survival. Salt is an electrolyte—a mineral that carries an electric charge in bodily fluids and plays a critical role in nerve function.
Himalayan salt is extracted from deep below the Himalayan mountain range. For thousands of years, the salt was under intense pressure from the earth, making it extremely pure. And that’s how we like it.
#1 Coffee Alternative
Why I started mud.
I liked coffee. The smell, the taste, and, more importantly, I liked the ritual. There was something about a freshly brewed cup that made me feel like I could take on more and do it better.
But the dream stopped there. I would finish the cup and have an anxious peak of sprinting alertness, followed by a jittery, unproductive crash. It would f*ck up my sleep and leave me groggy the next day. So I would order another cup to “bring me back to life” and the vicious cycle continued.
I noticed more and more friends saying things like “I’m trying to quit coffee” or “I’m trying to keep it to one cup a day.” Why? The drink that so many people were using to “fuel their day” didn’t seem to fulfill its promise.
Long story short, I dropped coffee, lost my ritual, and set out to recreate a new one. If I was going to drink something every day I wanted it to support mental clarity, physical performance and immunity. And, of course, it had to taste good ...
Does it contain caffeine?

Yes, we are Whole30 Approved® and loved by the community.
