  • Use about 1 heaping tsp of chaga nuggets per cup of tea
  • Steep in boiling water for about 5 minutes and drink
  • You can reuse the nuggets 3 or 4 more times
  • You can add sweetener if you like. Maple Syrup is delicious!
  • You can add some milk if you like. Homemade almond milk is my favourite!
  • If you add it to coffee it will make it an alkaline drink which is much healthier or the body

** It is best to use spring water and do not boil the water (between 181 to 191 deg F)

**Don’t waste the nuggets- dry them out and make an alcohol tincture to extract the alcohol soluble and fat soluble medicine (Jing- longevity)
