Chaga contains more antioxidants than any other natural substance on earth. Long used in folk medicine, chaga contains a variety of substances such as polysaccharides, betulin, betulinic acid, and inotodiol, and is said to offer a number of health benefits. It is rich in a variety of nutrients including B-complex, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium. Chaga powder can be brewed with coffee, or used to make a tea or tincture.
Far West Fungi creates this line of mushroom powders by air-drying fresh mushrooms in our own commercial kitchen, and then grinding them into a fine powder. The result is a powerful mushroom seasoning, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Instructions for Brewing:
¼ Cup of chaga powder
8 - 12 cups of water
Stir into a crockpot or medium sized sauce pot. In crock pot, simmer on low setting for at least 2 hours, or ideally overnight, adding more water as needed. In sauce pot, simmer on low heat on a back burner of the stove for a minimum of 2 hours. For best results, cook up to 4 hours. Strain out mushroom solids and discard (or may be used to reinfuse once more for weaker results), then store tea in glass jar(s) in refrigerator up to 1 week. Can be frozen up to 6 months. For best results, drink 1 chilled pint per day.
