jAGA Review: Power Your Day with a Tasty Reishi & Cordyceps Mushroom Alternative to Alcohol


As a recent convert to DIRTEA Mushroom Coffee, I’m long sold on the magical powers of medicinal shrooms and have noticed the benefits where energy and focus are concerned. When I heard about new kid on the block, jAGA, I was curious. 

jAGA sodas are a range of refreshingly light sparkling drinks that are powered by a calming and uplifting blend of adaptogenic Reishi and Cordyceps mushrooms, along with Ashwagandha, Magnesium, L’Tryptophan and L’Theanine.

Available in a 330ml, 100% recyclable can, each beverage is caffeine free, vegan and gluten-free friendly. The range flavours include Pomelo and Passionfruit, Mixed Berry, Mexican Lime & Mint and Watermelon. 

Having tried the whole range, I have to say my personal favourites are Mexican Lime & Mint and Watermelon, but quite honestly, they all deliver on flavour. There’s not taste of mushrooms whatsoever, instead, just light, sparkly, fruity goodness. 

And, whilst they are marketed as an uplifting alternative to alcohol, they do blend nicely with tequila or gin – I can’t lie. 

The shots too are equally as impressive. Each variant is made with an energising blend of premium, natural ingredients, designed to be your own personal health kit, whether you need a pick-me-up or a wind-down. Check them all out below – there’s something for every part of the day.
