Chaga Mushroom Tea is made with medicinal chaga mushrooms that are known for their incredible healing powers, especially when it comes to cancer as they are the highest food source of antioxidants.
Ingredients
  • 1 liter filtered water
  • 4 chaga mushroom chunks
  • FOR CHAI CHAGA TEA:
  • 1 cinnamon stick or ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 inch ginger or ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 5 whole cloves or ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 3 cardamom pods or ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 star anise or ¼ tsp ground star anise
  • ½ Tbsp black peppercorns or ⅛ tsp black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp stevia
  • Splash of nut milk
  • FOR VANILLA CHAGA TEA
  • 10 drops vanilla stevia
Instructions
  1. Place the water and chaga into a large pot along with spices if using whole spices (omit spices completely for the vanilla version).
  2. Increase the heat to low and simmer gently for at least 30 minutes. It is really important that you do not boil, the hot temperature can corrupt the active ingredients in chaga mushrooms. If you would like a stronger brew, continue to gently heat for up to 10 hours, adding spices for the last 30 minutes.
  3. Once brewed, remove the chaga mushroom chunks and store in the freezer. You can use them again up to 5 times as long as the brew is still a dark coffee like colour. If you used whole spices, remove and discard them. If you are using ground spices, add them now.
  4. Add stevia or vanilla stevia and enjoy hot or chilled with a splash of nut milk. Store in the fridge for up to 14 days.
