Magic Mushrooms Tea – Benefits and How To Make it
Are you bored of your regular tea every morning? Here is an interesting tea to
keep you fit and active all through the day. What’s more, you can prepare it in
a jiffy, and it is loaded with nutrients as well! We are talking about the magic
mushrooms tea that you can prepare in your home with simple ingredients.
What is the magic mushrooms tea all about?
You might already know that mushrooms are very good for your health.
However, did you know that if you drink the water that the mushrooms are
boiled in, you can get your daily dose of your protein and fiber? Since they are
low in calories, mushrooms tea is great for managing your weight too.
Edible or medicinal mushrooms are used for making this magic tea. If you are
looking for a healthy alternative for your caffeine-based beverages, mushroom
tea is a great choice for you. Usually psychedelic mushrooms (also known as
magic mushrooms or shrooms) are used for making this tea. Sometimes,
lingzhi mushrooms (the porous, edible ones) are also used for this purpose.
The active ingredient that these mushrooms contain is the beta glucans-rich
psilocybin. This compound produces mind-altering and psychedelic effects,
when ingested. However, they don’t cause any addiction issues.
Making magic mushrooms tea
The mushrooms are soaked in hot water for a long time, and the residual
fungal matter is then drained out. This is the basic mixture. According to one’s
personal tastes and regional cultures, many substances are added to this
fungal matter. Some people don’t like the taste of the water drained out from
the mushrooms; therefore, they add lemon juice, teas, and other ingredients to
the mixture to make it tastier than before.
The magic mushrooms or psychedelic mushrooms do no look or taste like the
normal mushrooms that you usually buy from stores. They are heavy and
contain a lot of meat inside. They taste very pungent and like dirt, when eaten
raw. To get the psychic effects of the psilocybin from these mushrooms, you
need to make tea from them. Here is how you can do it..
Grind a few shrooms into a fine powder. You can use a coffee grinder or
the normal blender for this. You can also cut the mushrooms into small
pieces if you don’t want to grind them.
Add a small piece of ginger to the mushroom powder.
Pour hot water over this mixture and allow it to settle down for about 15
to 20 minutes.
Add honey and/or lemon juice and enjoy the magic mushroom tea
If mushrooms can cause you nausea, you can first strain out the mixture
before adding honey and/or lemon juice to the mixture.

Loaded with vitamins, protein, fiber and antioxidants

Some things to note
Ensure that the water is not boiling when you pour it over the mushrooms.
You can add additional flavors, such as lemon juice, orange juice, hibiscus,
ashwagandha, licorice root and other herbs to the mushroom tea. However,
please add only those ingredients that don’t reduce the potency and
effectiveness of the magic mushrooms.
It is always recommended to drink the tea version of the magic mushrooms
than consume the raw mushrooms, as the psychoactive compounds found in
them can be absorbed better this way.
