CHAGA MUSHROOM, wild harvested, chunks or pieces
Botanical name: Inonotus obliquus
Production: Our chaga pieces are harvested with sustainable practices in the wild and remote forests of Eastern Canada. This means that care is taken not to damage or puncture the bark of the birch trees which host the fungi, as well as 30% of the chaga is left unharvested, to insure the renewal and growth of the mushroom and continued health of ecosystem that it is a part of.
Common Use: The most common method of consuming Chaga mushroom is to make a tea. The tea can be prepared by simmering the mushroom in water for one hour or more, a crock pot works great. The pieces can also be reused, until they stop coloring the tea water with the dark brown color. The mild tasting tea can then be consumed on it's own, or as a base for other teas, coffees and even soups. Chaga can also be tinctured in alcohol.
Chaga has been in use as a medicine traditionally by indigenous peoples in Russia, Europe, Asia, and North America.
