About this product
Chaga tea requires a longer steeping time 5-10 minute is recommended. Watch this tea develop into a beautiful color of dark amber (similar to coffee). The aroma of Chaga tea is best described as earthy. Imagine the fresh smell of rich soil after a rainfall in nature. Chaga tea has a flavor combination that consists of a woody and earthy balance with delicate highlight of moss. It may be surprising that there is little or no taste of mushroom. This is a medium-full bodied tea and is delightful on its own or this tea works well with honey or preferred natural sweeteners. Even a little almond milk if you prefer a creamier texture.
In the world of both mushrooms and herbal tea, chaga is truly one of a kind. It in no way resembles the kind of mushrooms most are familiar with; instead, this mushroom grows mainly on birch trees, and its appearance could easily be mistaken for a growth of burnt bark. In spite of such an odd appearance, this mushroom has a long history of cultivation, and is greatly respected in the herbal world. Chaga has earned a number of dynamic titles, such as “The King of Mushrooms” and the “Diamond of the Forest”. It can be found in birch forests almost everywhere, including Russia, Korea, some parts of Europe, the northern U.S. and Canada.
