Chaga Recipes!

CHAGA (Inonotus obliquus): Our Chaga is ethically gathered from Yellow Birch trees in the foothills of the Adirondacks by our woodland essence team. In reciprocity, to honor the earth and there sources we gather and use, we are helping plant trees in 8 locations around the world through the organization Tree Sisters. Chaga is well known for being high in antioxidants, as well as beta-glucans, betulinic acid and sterols, supporting the endocrine, digestive and immune systems. Many people enjoy the flavor and benefits of Chaga tea or decoction; but I prefer adding other tasty ingredients for a more flavorful brew. Here are a few recipes to entice your tastebuds!
Chaga Tea Instructions:
A delicious, rich beverage brewed like coffee. May be prepared in any type of coffeemaker, including a French press. Or simply steep for 10-15 minutes in hot water on the stove and strain. For the full complement of chaga constituents~ simmer (don’t boil!) on very low flame (I use a flame-tamer) for 30-45 minutes and let stand until cool or as long as over-night. Strain and enjoy. Add you favorite milk and sweetener, if you’d like. ** You may use the Chaga grounds twice, as they are so concentrated. ENJOY!
