What Does Chaga Tea Taste Like? Chaga Tea is medium bodied with a pleasant, earthy flavor. It has surprisingly little mushroom flavor as it harbors more of a mellow, plant like taste due to its growth on the Birch tree. While this tea is delightful on its own, it is delicious with honey or any sweetener of your choice. Add a touch of your favorite milk option for a creamier taste. Honey is also an excellent choice for sweetening to add a bit of calmness to your cup.
How to Make Chaga Tea from chunks:
- Add 3 g of chaga chunks to 1 litre of water. Simmer for 10–20 minutes to make a tonic, or several hours to make a concentrate. Temperature range should be between 50 and 70 °C; never a rolling boil. Serve hot or let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate up to 14 days. Store used chaga chunks in freezer, and reuse 3–5 times or until water runs clear. After several brews, you may wish to break chaga chunks into smaller pieces to enable hot water to penetrate further and extract more beneficial compounds.
- Add ice, and drink as an iced tea. Add sweetener of choice if desired.
Can you drink Chaga Tea every day? Yes, you can drink Chaga Tea every day. However, there is a limit as to what your body can use. After approximately 3 cups per day, the leftover minerals and vitamins are naturally excreted from the body. It is recommend you space our your cups e.g. one for breakfast, one for lunch and one at bedtime.
Does Chaga Tea contain caffeine? Chaga tea does NOT contain caffeine and is safe for use by individuals with sensitivity to caffeinated products. Chaga contains no caffeine or other stimulants even it in its natural form.
What is Chaga Mushroom? The first evidence of Chaga dates to back to around 4000 B.C. Chaga grows most commonly on Birch trees that reside in the coldest regions of the Northern Hemisphere. A true testament to the strength of Chaga is that it not only survives but thrives in harsh, fiercely cold conditions. It also must have an exceptionally hard wood (primarily Birch but also Maple, Oak, etc) on which to grow. Soft wood would be greedily swallowed by this tough cookie. This powerful mushroom has been used to support the digestive system, boost the immune system, and slow growth of harmful tissue. In 200 B.C, Chinese healers began to regard the mushroom as a medicinal treatment that could reverse and support various deteriorating health conditions. In the last 50 years, Chaga Mushroom has also been researched for its adaptogenic effects on the body. The effect that this mushroom has on the body and mind is one of balance and harmony. It helps the body recalibrate while simultaneously giving it a subtle boost of energy. No caffeine makes this tea one of the best for caffeine sensitive tea drinkers. It also allows this tea to be consumed at any time of day, even in the evening.
