As afternoon hosts, we enjoy a little pick-me-up before we go on-air, but we all know coffee can make some people a little anxious or cause difficulty sleeping. Kama herself won't drink more than a large coffee because she can get jitters and a weird stomach.

So we were both excited to try MUD\WTR, which is a blend of cacao, chai, cinnamon, turmeric, chaga, reishi, lion's mane, and cordyceps. It has about 1/7 of the caffeine of coffee, so you get an energy boost along with ingredients that support alertness, a healthy immune system, and physical performance.

The company is environmentally responsible, too. Their packaging has no plastic. Their tin is recyclable, and the packaging for the non-dairy creamer is compostable. They also work with Pachama to ensure their carbon footprint is net positive by paying monthly to support reforestation efforts.

When it comes to the drink itself, Dave compared the texture to chai tea. He adds just a little sweetener, while Kama loved the smooth, earthy taste so much her body did a little internal happy dance. It's all USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, Whole30 and Kosher.

MUD\WTR is Dave's new 1:45 breaktime beverage before hitting the air at 2 p.m. and he feels clear, focused, and ready to entertain Northern Colorado! Meanwhile, Kama loves how the energy boost feels natural and steady, so she's looking forward to reaching for MUD\WTR on those afternoons when it feels like the day just won't end.
