Chaga Mushroom (Inonotus obliquus), which we hand harvest from Canada’s north, is available for sale in ground, small chunks, as a Chaga Chai mix, or Chaga Chocolate Mix. We even make Chaga Soap! This amazing wild fungi is said to contain significant amounts of antioxidant compounds. The appealing light vanilla flavour and nutty aroma of wild Chaga tea will help you clear your head and harness that extra energy you need to finish a hectic day (without the caffeine!). This wild fungi can also be blended with other teas, beverages or enjoyed chilled on a hot day. The renowned Wild Chaga Fungi is becoming popular in North America as a super-food. All of the Wild Chaga we sell is hand harvested by us in an ethical manner from birch trees in Northwestern Canada. Unlike many suppliers of wild mushrooms and fungi, we do not purchase from other harvesters. We only sell what we harvest. This way we can guarantee the quality and ethical harvest of the wild Chaga we sell. Chaga chunks that can be re-used for multiple pots of tea or in ground powder form for those who prefer loose tea bags and a stronger flavour. For an added “kick” check out our Wild Chaga Chai, or a gourmet Chaga Chocolate Mix. Only Chaga harvested from birch are utilized for tea and medicine. You might find look alikes on species of Aspen, willow, or popular. Please avoid these specimens. Betulin, a compound found in birch bark, has medicinal properties that are said to benefit human health and immune systems. Betulin is difficult for our bodies to break down and utilize when harvested directly from the bark of the birch tree. When wild Chaga develop on birch trees they change the betulin’s chemistry, transforming the compound into a form digestible to humans. The betulin is absorbed by the Chaga mushroom as it grows. The healing powers of Wild Chaga have been well documented over the past fifty years. Only a small amount of Chaga is required to make tea (1/8th of a cup will make 2 liters of brew!). If you plan on adding the Chaga to your smoothies or hot chocolates, coffees etc, you can use more. We also use this fantastic fungi in our favourite baking recipes, especially brownies. Our four legged friends (dogs) enjoy the benefits too!
