This recipe will make 6 (32 ounce) mason jars of chaga tea.
Step 1: Fill Up Your Pot with 4 Litres of Filtered Water. I like to use either distilled or spring water.
Step 2: Add 12 TBL of Ground Up Chaga. The ratio is 3 tbl of ground up chaga per 1 litre of water.
Step 3: Turn Heat On Hight & Bring to a Boil.
Step 4: Let it Boil for 5 Minutes.
“It is said that Chaga contains anti-inflamatory, anti-viral, a potent anti-oxident, anti-bacterial, anti-tumor, and anti-cancer properties.”
Step 5: Give It A Good Stir.
Step 6: Turn Heat to Low & Let it Simmer for 2.5 Hours.
Step 7: Turn Off Heat and Let the Chaga Tea Cool Down. We want to let the Chaga tea cool down before pouring it into the glass mason jars, unless we want to consume some right away.
Step 8: Use a Fine Strainer & Fill Up Each Mason Jar Half Way.
Step 9: Brew A Second Pot of Chaga Tea. We will use the same chaga we just used to make an other brew. This brew will be a tiny bit less potent but still very powerful. There are still so many properties left in the ground up chaga that we do not want to waste any of it.
Step 10: Fill Up Your Pot Again with 4 Litres of Filtered Water. I like to use either distilled or spring water.
Step 11: Turn Heat on High & Bring to a Boil. We are using the same chaga and not adding any new chaga into the pot.
Step 12: Let it Boil for 3 Minutes.
Step 13: Give the Chaga Tea a Good Stir.
Step 14: Turn the Heat to Low & Simmer for 1.5 hours.
Step 15: Turn the Heat Off & Let It Cool Down.
Step 16: Use a Fine Strainer & Fill Up Each of the 6 Mason Jars.
Step 17: Let the Chaga Tea in the Mason Jars Cool Down Before Putting a Lid on and Putting them in the Fridge.
Step 18: You can Disgard the Ground Up Chaga in the bottom of the Pot. Or You Can Make a Third Brew but it will be less Potent.
Step 19: You Can Drink the Chaga Tea on its Own. I warm it up on the stove top every morning. Or it is Great as a Base in Soups, Smoothies and Elixers!
