Rejuvenate Latte

When it’s cold outside and you need a cozy drink to replace coffee or tea, this will do the trick.  There are no stimulants in it (so no anxious feeling) and it will actually support your adrenals, leaving you with a calm type of energy, enabling you to focus on the things that matter most to you.

It’s a really great way to get some medicinal and tonic herbs into your life.

I like to use Rejuvenate powder, from my friend Elwin Robinson and Lionheart Herbs.  But if you can’t get that, you can use any of the medicinal mushroom powders like chaga or reishi, all of which are great for your endocrine system.

Here’s what’s in Lionheart Herbs Rejuvenate:

Rejuvenate is used to restore vitality and health to the kidneys, bladder, bones, joints and tendons.  It healths the nervous system and relieves nervous conditions, promotes relaxation, recovery, memory, healing.  It builds jing and reserve energy.

Here is a list of the incredible ingredients you will find in your Rejuvenate Taoist Tonic Tea Blend, as well as just a small, relevant selection of their many, well researched, time proven benefits:


  • Tonic Herb for the Kidneys;
  • Sharpens the mind, improves lucidity, concentration, precise coordination and focus;
  • Improves both short and long term memory;
  • Increases hydration due to its astringent properties;
  • Prevents the leaking or wasting of Jing, our precious and irreplaceable reserve energy, probably its most crucial quality;
  • Increases potency in men, fertility in women;
  • Aids in preventing premature ejaculation, restoring sex drive, and increasing sexual endurance (worth having for this quality alone right?);
  • Increases sexual desire, vaginal secretions, and genital sensation in women (worth having for this quality alone right?);
  • Excellent to restore and maintain a youthful appearance and attitude;
  • Improves hearing and vision

This is a small overview of just a few of the most relevant benefits. Books could, and have, been written extolling the virtues of each particular herb, and the sum of all of them combined in this perfectly balanced formula is greater than the individual herbs. If you’re interested I highly recommend you research and find out more, the history of use behind these herbs is pretty amazing.

Rejuvenate Ingredients

Sweetener: If you don’t like using stevia as a sweetener, simply substitute with your favourite sweetener, such a xylitol or a little maple syrup or coconut sugar.

Cashews: I wanted to use just a really small amount of cashews, because all you’re looking for is creaminess. To give you an idea, 7ozs (20g) works out to about 10 to 15 individual cashews.

You can also use any other favourite nut, seed, oat or coconut milk.

Coconut oil: Haven’t included in the recipe, but 1 or 2 teaspoons will be lovely and make it even more creamy.

Maca: I love the addition of maca for a malty taste, but you could also replace with carob too (different taste, but nice substitute).

  1. Thank you for this healthy recipe, I will place an order Friday, but not Maca I am allergic, but ok for the rest. I am very tired right now, I hope it suits me.
    Thank you

    • Hey Chantal, I’ll be very interested to see how you like it. Of course, the best thing for tiredness is sleep, so please make sure you’re getting a good night’s sleep. Water is also essential. Lastly, some kind of gentle movement. Walking is a wonderful way to exercise if you don’t have energy for anything else.

  2. Out of stock with the tea, Doh! Also, my son has nut allergies, so I don’t use nuts, can I just use coconut milk and possibly coconut cream? I have maca and cacao powder, looking forward to trying it out. xx

  3. Can you heat the cashew ‘milk’? Some nut milks I have made don’t like being heated, but I like my creamy drinks warm.

  4. So I splurged when LionHeart had their sale and bought the rejuvenate. Shipping to the USA makes this a real treat. I sure wish they would distribute through someone over here.
    Anyway, I absolutely love this idea, Russell. Thank you for sharing it. I will play with other suggestions in the comments, as well. Rejuvenate with lime…hmmm 🙂

  5. Just mixed this up now and after reading the comments had to use both the cashews and the coconut oil!! Creamy & delishious !! I used carob powder instead of maca as that’s what I had, and the Chagall mushroom powder. Yum!!!!

  6. Hi Russell:

    This is great. Wondering if I can double or triple the recipe? Would it cause any harm?


  7. So grateful you shared this seriously delicious recipe.Will use rehmannia & maca pd.& either a Ron Teeguardens Reishi capsule or some Jing City w/lucuma in place of Loin heart Herb’s Rejuvenate(since I am in the states and can not easily purchase from them) Mine won’t be as nutritiously sound as yours without the Rejuvenate, but still looking forward to trying this warming treat.Also grateful you used discretion and chose only a small amount of cashews here.I adore your beautiful photograph’s and oh oh oh how I love your spoons and perfectly beautiful cup. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  8. Hi Russell,

    This latte recipe sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing this elixir.

    I was wondering, do you have an alternative for Rejuvenate, Reishi and Chaga? I’m living in Ecuador and I can’t buy these products here, unfortunately. I really like the amazing properties of these powders.

    Keep up the inspiring work!

  9. I had serious priapism symptoms for many hours after consume a smoothie with a very litle of maca in it!
    It´s very serious to me!

    Do you know about more people with this results?

  10. Okay, thanks, found it! So this tea blend has herbs with interesting properties. What a great idea! Thanks for steering us!

  11. Ow, sounds amazing!!

    Ive been doing something similar in the morning, but instead of the cashews, I add about 1 TBS of coconut oil and it makes it super creamy & frothy!

    Love your work Russell – thanks so much for the continue stream of amazingness that comes from your brain! 🙂


  12. Oh this looks great!! I already love Rejuvenate ( with lime juice), and hadn’t even THOUGHT to turn it into a warm creamy drink, to hit that spot when you need it.
    Thanks for inspiration Russell 🙂

  13. Well, yes, it does sound delightful. What is “Rejuvenate” again? And, is this a hot drink?


  14. Sounded great but as soon as I saw the Maca alarm bells rang
    I’m seriously allergic if that’s the term to maca. I immediately double over
    In pain in my stomach which is such a shame. Have you heard of other people who have this?
    Curious to know if that is the case for others.
    I tested it with my kinesiologist and it came up
    That my body can’t tolerate it! Interesting
