What’s Chaga…

…can we talk about mushroom tea for a minute! Tea is a fresh drink and Chaga mushrooms are food from nature. Both have different places, but then both can be integrated into one product. This is what is called chaga tea!

Chaga mushrooms have only recently become popular and spread to the western world. Apparently, in the western world this mushroom is becoming popular and its demand is increasing rapidly. Finally, the Chaga mushroom is processed into tea.

In scientific language called inonotus obliquus, this is a fungus that grows on birch wood, usually in sub-arctic climates, such as Northern Europe, Northeast America, and North Asia. The benefits of Chaga mushrooms for health have been practiced for centuries ago, and only in the last few years has this mushroom become popular to the western world. The outer part of the Chaga mushroom looks hard and black with a cracked texture like the appearance of charcoal. Inside the chaga mushrooms appear softer with a brownish yellow color.

Chaga mushrooms are packed with Vitamin B-complex, Potassium, Copper, Magnesium, Vitabmin D, Manganese, Zinc, Calcium, Iron, Rubidium, Selenium, Cesium, Amino Acids.

“Chaga mushrooms are famous for being the king of medicinal mushrooms and have been a traditional medicine for centuries in the eastern world. ”
