Video on the Chaga Mushroom. We suggest using most botanicals 3 times (or more), to get all of what the plant has to give. Chaga is a non sustainable fungi, if over harvested and used inappropriately. Knowing how to harvest and use will help preserve this gift of the forest.
Here is another great site with good information! https://chaga.ca/pages/chaga-harvesting
I make a chaga chai tea..one teaspoon of Chaga with a few chai tea bags will make dozens of good cups of tea..keep the brew going, add some cinnamon sticks etc. keep adding water and brewing until the colour and flavour wanes. We honour the medicine when we use it thoroughly.
