The term 'Functional' is applied to fungi that confer additional benefits beyond their inherent nutritional value. Some of these benefits include anti-inflammatory properties and immune support. ‘Adaptogens’ are plants and fungi containing helpful compounds that support our body's resilience to environmental stressors. They help us "adapt" --hence the name.
If you are pregnant or nursing we recommend you consult your healthcare professional before consuming any TĒONAN products.
Some do, some don’t - see below.
Americano - 80 mg per serving. Café Olé - 80 mg per serving. Matchaté - 60 mg per serving. Cacaowah - 5 mg per serving. Curcumama - Caffeine free. Gingerati - Caffeine free. Cape Rooibosch - Caffeine free.
The best way to find out is to try them all -- and the best way to try them all is the Tastea Pack! It includes 4 servings of each of our 7 flavours.
You can purchase the Tastea Pack here.
Yes, they can. Even though we formulated our products to be one daily dose per drink, natural products like functional mushrooms can safely be consumed in bigger doses.
Feel free to consume up to 5 of our drinks per day, although for our caffeine-containing products, please apply the same logic as you would with any product containing caffeine -- limit consumption based on your personal response/reaction to it.
They don’t. When weformulated our products, our goal was to add as much mushroomy goodness to themas possible, without crossing the line into noticeable- mushroom-tasteterritory. And we succeeded ;-)
We formulated our drinks to contain one daily dose per serving (per drink). As most studies investigating the effect of functional mushrooms typically use between 2000 - 4000 mg dry mushrooms per day, we took the average - 3000 mg dry mushrooms.
We use highly concentrated mushroom extracts, which allows us to get the equivalent effect without needing to add so much powder to our beverages. Each one of our drinks contains 300 mg of a 10:1 extract - the equivalent of 3000 mg dry fruiting body.
Quantity is not the only important component here --so is quality! Most functional mushroom products today are not actually the fruiting body, but the mycelium (fungal ‘root’ network that produces the fruiting-body, or mushroom). There is new evidence to suggest mycelium also has some wellness benefits, however they contain nowhere near the same levels of compounds of interest (for ex. fungal triterpenoids & beta-glucans) as the fruiting bodies do.
The biggest problem here is not the sub-par levels of medicinal compounds, but that these products are only fractionally mycelium --the rest is made up of the substrate on which the mycelium is grown, such as rice flour. We are STRONGLY against this practice, and support efforts to start regulating and requiring honest labelling. It is unacceptable that products with pictures of actual mushrooms on them contain NO fruiting bodies at all, and are mostly (60-90%) composed of rice flour!
We proudly use mushroomextracts provided by a BC-based company called NAMMEX. NAMMEX is the industryleader in providing pure, safe, and potent mushroom extracts for over threedecades now. They have multiple independent lab analyses to back this up. Youcan read more about their process, production protocols, and quality control HERE.
For now our products are available for purchase exclusively online, either on our website, or for your convenience on Amazon (both USA and Canada).
As we grow in the future we may decide, if it serves our customers best, to expand and allow other online retailers or physical retailers to sell our products. If you’d like to be kept in the loop if/whenever we sell our products in other locations, please sign up to our email newsletter in the opt-in form found in the footer and you’ll be the first to know when this happens.
At present we only serve the USA and Canada.
No, you won’t. Canadian orders ship from within Canada, and American orders ship from within the USA; meaning no orders ever cross international borders and are therefore never subject to customs.
All orders under $50 pay a flat shipping fee of $10, while all orders above $50 get free shipping.
Whether you live in the US or Canada, all orders should arrive between 3 to 10 days, depending on your exact location.
US orders are delivered by USPS/UPS/FedEx/DHL, while those in Canada are delivered by Canada Post. We really aim to give you the highest quality and most transparent delivery service, and we will constantly work to improve it so you can get your orders in the minimum amount of time possible.
All orders include tracking, so at any time you can find out exactly where they are and when you can expect them, as well as the ability to activate notifications either through email or your smartphone, so you will automatically be updated at each important step as your package makes its way from our distribution warehouse to your front door.
We strongly believe in our products and want everyone to be happy with their interaction with us. Therefore, if you purchased one of our drinks and were not satisfied, we’ll gladly refund you, provided you have not used more than half of the product.

You can only use a single discount code on any one order. Of course you are free to save other codes and use them for future orders.
Discount codes cannot be used on subscriptions, unless they’re specially marked for that purpose.
If you realize you’ve done this, please mail us as soon as possible at email@example.com and it’ll be our pleasure to retroactively discount your order.
Absolutely - all 7 of our flavours are available via subscription.
They are typically not valid for subscription orders as this would mean the discount would be applied in perpetuity. Unless specifically indicated, discount codes are for single-order purchases only.
Of course -- you are in complete control of your subscription. We offer this for the sole reason to be a convenience to our customers, not as a trick or to lock you into anything. Of course, orders that have already shipped cannot be cancelled, so please be sure to change your profile settings, or contact us in advance of the order being dispatched.
We will never charge you any fee whatsoever regarding any change to your subscription. There are no hidden costs, no catches, no proverbial ‘wool to pull over your eyes’. The subscription service is here for you, to serve you best by giving you “set and forget” convenience. If, at any point, you are no longer interested in this service, you can change or stop it with the click of a single button without any repercussions.
Unfortunately, at present we are only capable of serving the US and Canada. We are a young and ambitious company with big dreams, so first we need to focus our efforts in order to expand them later.
NONE of our products contain sugar, nor sweetener of any kind. It’s up to you whether you’d like to add the sweetener of your choice to taste.
Not at all. Hallucinogenic (or magic) mushrooms contain very specific compounds, mostly psilocin and psilocybin, which are the progenitor of the psychedelic experience one may undergo when consuming these specific species of mushrooms.
None of the mushrooms we use in our formulas contain any compound which can induce a hallucinogenic state. We only use 100% legal, natural, and organic mushrooms containing therapeutic compounds that have safely been used by various cultures for millenia without any psychoactive effect. The only thing they do is make you feel awesome ;)
At present our products are not certified Kosher.
All mushroom extracts used in TĒONAN products are made from 100% certified organic mushrooms that were grown on their natural substrate materials native to each specific mushroom. They were not cultivated in sterile laboratories with sterile air, sterile conditions, and artificial lights. Unlike the majority of medicinal mushrooms on the market, none of our mushrooms are “farmed” on substrates using cereal grains or rice.
Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses using natural lighting and natural airflow. They are produced in the exact same manner you want your food produced - on a farm tended by real people, not in a laboratory managed by technicians.
Again, unlike the vast majority of functional mushroom products on the market, we do not peddle lab-grown mycelium in our products. Numerous studies have clearly shown that mycelium grown on grain has very low levels of beta-glucans (the good stuff you want) and very high levels of starch (the stuff you don’t want).Yet this trend persists for the simple reason that it is the cheapest and easiest way to produce functional mushrooms, and the market has not yet developed the level of education to discern the difference.
After doing extensive due diligence, we 100% feel that we have found the most reputable and reliable producers: BC-based NAMMEX. They have been in the functional mushroom-growing business for nearly 30 years, and their products speak for themselves. We only use 100% organic fruiting bodies -- which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
We use a heat-resistant strain of Bacillus Coagulans that has been developed specifically to maintain its potency during applications in boiling/baking.
Yes! Our products are certified by ECOCERT and carry both the USDA organic and Organic Canada seals.
The expiration date of each product is stamped on the back of the packaging --please refer to this to know the exact date.
As with many therapeutic foodstuffs, it is normal to extract and concentrate the active compounds. This is done for three reasons. Firstly, most functional mushroom bodies are woody and not at all digestible by our human processes. If you were to just eat a whole Reishi mushroom, the only thing you’d get from it is stomach cramps. By extracting the active compounds first, it is as though they are pre-digested, and become not only much easier, but possible for our bodies to absorb them. Furthermore, extractions allow us to get more “juice for the squeeze” -- by concentrating the therapeutic compounds. And lastly, extracts dissolve well in water making the consumption process much more enjoyable -- instead of a powder-laden sludge that is hard to drink.
Broadly-speaking, in the ‘mushroom-extract world’ there are two types of extracts -- water and ethanol. The ground-up mushrooms are first extracted with hot water, which removes most (but not all) of the desired compounds. After that, the material is then extracted with ethanol. Because of its unique chemical properties (that differ from water), ethanol is able to extricate the remaining compounds that the water was not able to.
Finally, the liquid from both the water and ethanol extractions is removed by dehydration, and the remaining concentrated extracts are combined. This gives us the most potent, broad-spectrum extract possible.
Not only do we source from the most reputable organic medicinal mushroom producer(who have been in the game for three decades), but all extracts are tested by third party labs - TWICE - for moulds, heavy metals, pesticides, aflatoxins, mycotoxins, and a slew of other undesired contaminants. In this way we make sure that we serve only the highest-quality, cleanest, most supportive wellness products that we are able to! We love our drinks as much as you do, and consume them on the daily. We would never offer something to you that we don’t stand behind 100%.
ALL the mushroom extracts we use are 100% legal in every country around the world. We do not use any intoxicating, mind-altering, or toxic mushrooms. Only legal, powerful, health and immune-supporting therapeutic mushrooms that have safely been used by various cultures for millenia.
Yes, our products contain no animal-derived products. The “milky” component for most of our products comes from coconut, not dairy.
Yes, all our products are completely free from gluten.
Yes, all our ingredients are 100% GMO-free.
There is no data or record of any normal and healthy infant/young child having an adverse reaction to the functional mushrooms we use in our products. However, to be safe we do recommend asking your pediatrician or healthcare provider for their opinion. Also, we do not recommend infants or young children to consume caffeine, so we can only recommend you serve them curcumama, cacaowah, gingerati, or cape rooibosch.
All of our products are vegan, gluten-free, and GMO-free. All ingredients have been tested by third-party analytical labs to ensure they contain no contaminants. None of our products contain wheat, soy, or peanuts. None of the aforementioned ingredients are ever present in our facility, which we own and use only to produce TĒONAN beverages.
Notehowever that all our products, except Americano contain coconut, and though wedon’t use nuts in any of our products, or ever introduce it into our facility,we are not (yet) certified nut-free. Though we are working on it!
Ifyou do have a mushroom allergy we HIGHLY recommend that you avoid using ourproducts until you have consulted your healthcare provider, shared your desireto use the compounds present in our products, and have been given the A-Okay todo so.
Also,if you are unsure, start small - perhaps only consume a quarter or half aserving, wait a day, and if no issues arise then try a full serving. There isno rush, the path to optimum wellness will be waiting for you right here nextto the sign that says TĒONAN ;)
