How To Use
At Keystone Herbs We Drink Mushroom Tea!
I enjoy everything about the Chaga Tea making process and I’m quit certain it has changed my life. I prefer wild harvested mushrooms. I only use spring water for making Chaga Tea. I like to let the mushrooms break down for at least two hours. After the water in the pot boils down to about half, I like to re-fill the pot to the top with fresh water and then let it boil down to half again. This creates a really strong brew. You can soak flavored tea bags in your Chaga Tea as it cools down if you like. I like the taste of Chaga Tea plain by itself. If I sweeten it, I like to use raw honey.
How To Make Chaga Tea
Ingredients: Wild Harvested Chaga, 2 Quarts (64oz) of Water, Medium Size Boiling Pot With Top
Simply Put: Put a chunk of Chaga into a pot, fill the pot up with water, boil the water for as long as you like, and then let it cool a bit before pouring into a mug, enjoy plain or with your favorite sweetener.
* I like to boil it for about 2 hours, the longer the boil, the stronger the tea. I like the plain taste of Chaga Tea
but I also enjoy using raw honey.
More Precise Steps on how to make Chaga Tea:
Step 1: Put two (2) quarts of water into pot and place the top on the pot
leaking a crack for some heat to get out, this will help the water build heat,
but wont heat the water too quickly, which keeps the integrity of the water.
Step 2: Turn a burner on 6 and bring to a boil
Step 3: Take a piece of Chaga the size of a Silver Dollar:
*You can use a chunk which is easier to work with or
you can cut the chaga into very small pieces with a knife
to increase surface area of the herb. Some people even powder it.
I prefer keeping it simple with just using chunks of Chaga.
Step 4: After the water starts to boil, you can turn the heat down to a 3 or you can
can choose to leave the dial at 6. Let the water in the pot boil down to about
half of the amount in the pot. This will create a strong brew.
*If you’re pressed for time, you can boil it with higher heat for 15-20 minutes
Step 5: Turn off the heat and let the Chaga steep in the pot with the top completely covering the pot
Step 6: If you would like to flavor your Chaga Tea with Mint Leaves or any other herb, now is the time to add it
to the pot. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, or just 5 minutes if you like.
Step 7: Strain Chaga tea off into a mason jar, let cool down to a safe temp, enjoy
Quick Coffee Pot Method:

Crock Pot Method (My favorite method)Step 1: Fill up a crock pot with water and turn on low Step 2: Put multiple chunks of Chaga in the crock pot Step 3: Let the herbs continuously break down in the crock pot (Add more water as needed) Step 4: Enjoy fresh and strongly brewed Chaga Tea throughout the day from your crock pot * This is my favorite way to make my Chaga Tea because you don’t have to babysit a pot on a stove all day. You can put your herbs in the crock pot, leave for the day, and come home to a strongly brewed, vibrance inducing tea!
