Chaga mushrooms have some of the best natural antioxidants and anti-cancer properties you can find. But this ugly fungi is no good on salad. You can buy pre-packaged Chaga tea online, but isn’t it more fun to make things yourself? Try this recipe to make your own home-brew.
Chaga Mushroom Tea
- Prep Time:5 minutes
- Cook Time:30 minutes - 4 hours (your preference)
- Total Time:1 - 4 hours
- Servings:4 cups
- 4 cup water
- 1 chunk of Chaga mushroom
Pour cold, filtered water into a pot with one one fist sized mushroom chunk and bring to a roaring boil .
Once the water has started boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer for 20 minutes to 4 hours. Simmer time depends of preference for strength.
#SpoonTip: I recommend boiling for 1-4 hours to get the most of the Chaga, you can always add more water later if it’s too strong.
After simmering for the desire time, pour into your favorite cup and enjoy!
Add Honey or Milk as needed.
