Chaga Tea is made from wild chaga (Inonotus obliquus) mushroom chunks, which are a source of fungal polysaccharides with immunomodulating properties.
Chaga is a dense, nutrient-rich mass of mycelium. The mycelium taps directly into the bark and tree core to yield a rich source of polysaccharides.
Chaga chunks are the choice of consumers that prefer to make their own tea or grind chaga into powder for recipes.
New Roots Herbal’s Chaga Tea is harvested in small batches, then packaged in resealable bags for convenience and freshness retention.
Adults: 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.
Cautions and warnings: Consult a health-care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
