Mushroom Teas

tl_files/V1/images/gourmet/tea/mushroom-tea.jpgSome of FP’s earliest products were mushroom teas, naturally soothing to body and spirit. Though our product line has grown and diversified tremendously over the years, we still offer mushroom teas. They’ve been good to us, and we think they’ll be good to you. 2 oz net weight; one package makes more than two dozen cups.

Directions for Use

We recommend steeping 1 teaspoon of  tea mixture per cup in very hot water for 20–40 minutes (longer steep times will produce a more balanced flavor), then straining. Or you can prepare the tea by placing it in a tea-ball. We like to reuse the tea 2 or 3 times to maximize its potential.

National Hot Tea Month

January is National Hot Tea Month in the United States, and Fungi Perfecti is celebrating with our "Grow Tea With Your Tree" promotion: purchase 2 or more of our Certified Organic Mushroom Teas and get a free pack of Turkey Tail Plug Spawn! (Note: Plug Spawn will be added to your order before shipping, and will not appear on your invoice.)

For those of you who put up a Christmas tree this holiday, how about a fun DIY project for the new year? If you still have your tree, you can use Turkey Tail plug spawn to grow your own mushrooms for tea. Many customers tell us they have had great success putting their old trees to work in this manner; the gift that can keep on giving for years to come. You can inoculate your Christmas tree logs (approximately 2-3 logs per 100 pack), then keep them in temperatures above freezing for a few months in a garage, green house or basement to allow them to colonize. Turkey Tail is especially resilient to environmental extremes but will grow best if temperatures are above 40 °F. Plug Spawn can also be stored for 6 months in the fridge if you want to hold off inoculating your tree or another come Spring.
