I’m a self-proclaimed coffee junkee so I put this healthy alternative to the test...


I need to break up with coffee. That’s what I’ve promised myself for the last 15 years, but just like any toxic relationship, it’s tough to shake off for good. In fact, without a cup of joe to stimulate my mornings, I suffer all the telltale signs of withdrawal: headaches and general grouchiness. But how do I stop craving “the most widely consumed psychoactive drug”? MUD\WTR’s healthier coffee alternative—which founder Shane Heath spent over a year perfecting—just might be the key. As a self-proclaimed coffee junkie, I put it to the test! Here are 8 reasons it actually helped me kick my coffee addiction.

1. I have a love hate relationship with coffee.

While coffee’s usually considered safe in moderation, it can have both short- and long-term health risks with many potential side effects—anxiety, irritability, insomnia, muscle tremors, restlessness, and increased heart rate and blood pressure—some of which sound alarmingly familiar to me. The older I get, the harder it is to achieve high-quality sleep. I’m trapped in a dysfunctional coffee-dependent cycle: chugging it to stay awake during the day, which leaves me incapable of racking up precious REM sleep minutes at night. Enduring life entirely without caffeine, however, sounds like one of Dante’s most terrifying circles of hell.

2. Thankfully, MUD doesn’t eradicate caffeine completely.

MUD provides the precise amount needed to offer a boost—without any of the adverse effects or crash. That’s why MUD\WTR’s formula contains only 1/7th the caffeine of coffee from its base of masala chai.

3. MUD does what your oat milk latte wishes it could do—all while supporting your mental capacity, physical performance, and overall self.

A potent blend of black tea and fragrant spices, like cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, nutmeg, and cloves, masala chai is said to help promote focus and support a health immune system. Add in turmeric, packed with curcumin, and a slew of locally grown, adaptogenic 'shrooms — chaga for antioxidants, lion's mane to support focus and memory, cordyceps to promote natural energy, and reishi to support a health immune system — and you've got "mud".

4. No matter how beneficial it may be to give up coffee, I refuse to do anything without the approval of my tastebuds.

Luckily, MUD\WTR offers myriad delicious-sounding ways to prepare its powder—turn it into a latte! A smoothie! Even granola or cookies!—but the most straightforward method is to mix a 20-calorie tablespoon in hot water. I just added a squeeze of honey and the brand’s plant-based, sugar-free creamer powder—made from coconut milk and MCT (a.k.a. the good fats) which gave it a silky-smooth texture and just-right kick of sweetness.

5. I began noticing an unmistakable shift in my mood, acuity, and sleeping patterns.

While weaning myself off of coffee, I braced for severe withdrawal symptoms, like crippling headaches. But...they never came. Neither did my midday slump.

6. This is no weakened, watered-down, poor man’s version of coffee.

MUD\WTR’s revolutionary formula is a rich, robust replacement for my daily coffee ritual—and the way it makes me feel guarantees I won’t ever come crawling back to an espresso! Although I’ll still enjoy the occasional latte, I’m thrilled at the idea of cutting back my coffee intake and controlling my dependency. Goodbye, jitters. See ya, midday slump. Sorry coffee, I’ve got a new squeeze—and this one’s treating me a whole lot better.

7. I’m not the only one that found MUD to be life-changing.

Over 9,500 customers have written glowing reviews, rating MUD\WTR 4.9 out of 5 stars.

4. Certified organic, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher, and Whole30-approved.

Enough said!

Your coffee addiction doesn’t stand a chance! But don’t take my word for it—try it yourself.
