Guest Vlad Posted January 15, 2011 Report Share Posted January 15, 2011 In one of the Guill's articles they praise the medicinal properties of the Turkey-tail Mushroom. I like the name Cloud Mushroom, which is what the Chinese name translates to. I have not found it growing in quantity in my neck of the woods but have tried it. I think it has a pleasant aroma and flavor when used to brew a tea. I air dry the mushroom then keep it an air tight container. I hand crush some caps and brew a tea. Here is an excerpt from one of Guill’s articles: Coriolus versicolor (formerly Trametes versicolor, Polyporus versicolor) is a mushroom which grows on tree trunks. This mushroom has long been treasured in the East; in Japan it is known as kawaratake (“mushroom by the river bank”), and in China it is called Yun Zhi or “cloud fungus.” In Japan around 1965 a chemical engineer investigated Coriolus versicolor for its anticancer constituents after observing his neighbor’s life-threatening cancer was cured after taking Yun Zhi.
