Chaga tea tastes good. This video shows several ways to clean and prepare Chaga in preparation for use as tea. Chaga is well known the world over as a medicinal supplement with a wide variety of uses.
Chaga is also known as Tinder fungus, as the freshly harvested mushroom will take a spark from flint and steel with little if any preparation whatsoever making starting fire in a cold winter less challenging.
How many things in this world can be drank as tea and used to make fire to brew the tea? Buyer beware! ;) Make sure your Chaga is harvested from a Birch tree and ensure it was handled properly during all stages of harvest and preparation.
