Ingredients

  • 3 TBS of chaga mushroom powder or about 5 chunks of chaga mushroom
  • 1 L water

Instructions

  • Place the chaga in a pot on the stove.
  • Add water and turn on to medium low. 
  • Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes at least (do not boil as this can destroy the delicate complexes in the mushroom).
  • You can actually simmer the chaga for up to 12 hours for a stronger, more medicinal brew. In this case, continue to top up with water as you go to keep about the same liquid amount in the pot at all times. 
  • Once you have finished simmering, strain the tea and keep the leftover chunks of chaga. Chaga can be re-brewed up to 5 times, just store in an air-tight jar in your freezer. 
  • You can store chaga tea in the fridge for up to 14 days.
