"MUD\WTR is pretty much the best substitute for coffee that you can ultimately get."
Author and Fitness Coach

What is MUD\WTR?

MUD\WTR™ :rise Cacao is a blend of masala chai and adaptogens giving you a sharp mind, physical performance, and a supported immune system. It's earthy, a little chocolatey, and slightly spicey. Like chai and hot cocoa had a lil hippy love child.

How do I drink it?

Add a tablespoon to hot water and add whatever you like. Some like it with a little creamer, some honey or even bulletproof. Done? Stir well before enjoying like the legend you are.

Lion's mane

Lion's Mane was added to support mental performance. A newly-hyped nootropic in Western Cultures, Lion's Mane has been a part of Chinese and Japanese medicine for centuries. It's our vision to create a drinkable ritual that addresses mind, body, and soul - Lion's Mane is here for your mind.


Chaga is a mushroom that grows on birch trees. Eastern Cultures have been drinking chaga for centuries for its overall benefits and soothing properties.


Reishi was added to support a healthy immune system and to promote natural energy. This mushroom has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2000 years and is commonly called the “king of mushrooms” for its adaptogenic qualities. It has many polysaccharides and beta-glucans that are known to help support healthy immune function.


Cordyceps was chosen for its physical performance benefits. Originally used by high altitude Tibetan herdsman, Cordyceps is now used by many to support energy, stamina and athletic performance. When dreaming up our ideal elixir our physical performance was a major focus - Cordyceps is here to stay.


Cacao is MUD\WTR's most abundant ingredient both for its flavor and effect. Cacao was worshiped by the Mayans, fueled the daily diet of the Aztecs, and has been labeled the "food of the gods" by many subsequent cultures. It makes sense, because it tastes as good as it makes you feel.

Masala chai

Our founder lived in India for some time and fell in love with the tradition and benefits of Masala Chai. Chai is a blend of ingredients like naturally brewed and flash-dried black tea powder and 100% Certified Organic powdered spices: ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves. With just enough caffeine to induce alertness, numerous benefits, and a complex flavor profile that rivals coffee - chai is what gives MUD\WTR it's soul.


Turmeric is one of the most lauded compounds on the planet. Used in foods and drinks across the globe throughout history for its color, flavor, and benefits on the body and mind - it was an obvious addition to MUD\WTR. Curcumin is an antioxidant flavonoid in turmeric that supports a healthy immune system. Yep, we’ll take it.


Cinnamon is a spice that has been used medicinally for thousands of years… Something you’ll hear often around here. Primarily cinnamon was added for taste, but nothing in MUD\WTR is added for taste alone. Cinnamon contains phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and antioxidants that make it one of the most beneficial spices on the planet. MUD\WTR doesn’t have any sweeteners and cinnamon helps you fight off sugar cravings to keep you making better food choices throughout the day.

Himalayan salt

WTF? Salt? Yeah, salt. One of the most important things we do when we wake up is rehydrate. Salt supports hydration, contains minerals that the body needs, and plays a supporting role in making MUD\WTR taste amazing. We put a pinch in each serving to give you the benefits in the most subtle way possible.

Ask us anything.

Does :rise Cacao contain caffeine?

:rise Cacao contains a fraction of the caffeine found in coffee. On average, coffee contains 90-100mg of caffeine. That can vary up to +/-30mg, depending on the beans and the roasting method, according to the FDA. Meanwhile, :rise Cacao has around 35mg of caffeine per serving.

Is there sugar in :rise Cacao?

Nope. There are no sugars or sneaky sweeteners added. If it's not sweet enough for ya, try adding some of our own :sweetener. It's the least-bad sweetener money can buy.

Where are your products made?

MUD\WTR started in and operates out of Venice, CA. All of our mushrooms are American-grown, while the rest of our ingredients are sourced from all over the world, before being dropped off at our production facility by peregrine falcon.

Where are your mushrooms from?

All of our mushrooms are grown in the U.S.A., baby. We work with producers in California and Nevada, but only the very best of 'em.

Can you drink :rise Cacao while pregnant?

We're not doctors and we don't pretend to be. Consult your physician before making any changes to your diet during pregnancy.

Is :rise Cacao organic?

:rise Cacao is 100% USDA-certified organic.

Do you offer samples?

You want to sample the goods, eh? We totally get it—you want to know what you’re in for. But, you know, our blends aren’t just a one-night stand. They’re more of a “let’s grow old together” kind of thing. That’s why we recommend our 30-day starter kit. It’s the best way to really feel the long-term benefits. Trust us, it’s a commitment worth making.

Do you have wholesale partners?

We sure do. We work with select cafes and markets that we feel represent what we do and serve our customers well. Interested in becoming a wholesale partner? Drop our wholesale team a note on wholesale@mudwtr.com.

Will :rise Cacao make me trip?

The mushrooms in mud are magic ... but they're not that kind of magic. Nothing in mud will cause a psychedelic trip, but if you're into that sort of thing, check out our psychedelics journalism on Trends w/ Benefits.

Is :rise Cacao whole30-approved®?

It sure is. Whole30 HQ has made an exception to their "no oats and/or sorghum on the label" rule for MUD\WTR, as we use organic oats and sorghum to culture the mushroom blend. But because oats and sorghum are not present in significant amounts in the final product, Whole30 determined :rise Cacao is still Whole30-Approved® and compatible with the program.

I wasn't mad at coffee, just disappointed

So I made something better from cacao, herbs, spices and mushrooms. It gives me focus, energy and immune support, without the jitters and sleep issues of coffee or energy drinks. In 2018, I started sharing it with others. Now we have blends for every time of day.
