Chaga (Inonotus obliquus
That_Guy posted a topic in Use of Medicinal MushroomsHi everyone, I just wanted to post some material on my experience with Chaga, and see how other people are preparing theirs. So far I have brewed tea, and I have to say, it tastes much better than I had anticipated. It has a slight bitterness, with a vanilla-like flavour. I drink my coffee black, so I like the slight bitter taste, but adding some honey eliminates that slight acrid taste. Some say to steep the grounds in hot water for 5 mins, but I have always boiled the grounds on high for at least 1 hour, to get more constituents out. The longer you boil, the more bitter the brew. However, if it’s too strong, just dilute it with water. After boiling for an hour on high, I pour the brew through a cheese cloth. You can save the grounds in the fridge, and reuse them several times, until the water stops changing colour. How do you brew your tea? Do you have any unique recipes? Chai tea lattes? Ice cream? Can you see the 75lb hunk of chaga in the tree? Look close.
