About chaga mushroom powder
The chaga mushroom grows uniquely on the birch tree and is almost as hard as wood. It is unique in that chaga is the most nutritionally dense of all tree growths. Known by the Siberians as the ‘Gift from God’ and the ‘Mushroom of Immortality’, this vibrant growth has been used by humans to support health for thousands of years. The Japanese call it ‘The Diamond of the Forest’, while the Chinese deem it ‘King of Plants’.
Chaga is best consumed in its natural state as a tea tonic that has brewed for over 12 hours.
Brewing instructions for chaga powder:
Research shows the best way to draw the nutrients from chaga mushroom is by water extraction. We do not recommend using boiling water on raw chaga, since the hot temperature may corrupt the melanin complex and the polysaccharides, among other active ingredients. Place 1 litre of purified water in a pot. Bring water up to roughly 50°c. Place 2-3 tablespoons of powder into the water. Cover with lid, take off the heat and set aside to brew for 10-12 hours. Strain off and store in a in glass jar in a cool dark place. Chaga tea keeps up to 14 days in the fridge.
