For very potent tea, just put 3 heaping tbsp. (1/4 cup) of Chaga powder, or a Chaga tea bag or small chunks (1/4 cup of chunks) into a 2-liter pot of water and steep (I use a coffee pot filled to the 12 cup level) for 7 to 10 hours. (Do not Boil) Then strain through a fine strainer or cheesecloth (not necessary if using tea bags). Drink hot or cold! This makes enough tea for three days, drinking 4 cups a day. Chaga also makes very good ice tea. You can repeat this step again to get up to 4 litres per 1/4 cup Chaga. Many people are now using their Crock Pots to brew the tea, I think this is a very good method of getting the most out of your Chaga.
Chaga is very mild in flavor, so you can add lemon & honey to flavor it or a sprig of mint (Fresh mint is a good energy booster).
Try mixing Chaga tea half and half with beer for a refreshing drink!
If you deserve the best, then we have what you deserve!
