Brewing Mushroom Tea
Mushroom tea is gaining popularity due to its many health benefits, ranging from boosting the immune system to helping people relax after a long day. Brewing your own mushroom tea at home is a simple process, and can be made using various mushroom types. Here’s how you can make your own mushroom tea:
- Dried mushrooms (1 – 2 ounces)
- 4 cups of water
- Honey or sugar (optional)
- Step 1: Put the dried mushrooms in a small pot or cup. Make sure the container you choose is not made of aluminum, as this can affect the flavor of the tea.
- Step 2: Add four cups of water to the pot or cup.
- Step 3: Simmer on low for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Step 4: Strain out the mushrooms, and add honey or sugar to taste.
- Step 5: Pour into mugs and enjoy!
- Make sure to use a low heat for simmering, as high heat can burn the mushrooms.
- Try different types of mushrooms for added flavor.
- Adding a bit of almond or coconut milk can make your tea creamier and more flavorful.
- If you want a stronger flavored mushroom tea, you can double the amount of mushrooms and water used.
