Wild Chaga Mushrooms(Inonotus obliquus) are found in the world’s northern regions. They have a symbiotic relationship with their host trees. Although they grow on birch, alder, and poplar trees, only Chaga harvested from birch are utilized for tea and medicine. Betulin, a compound found in birch bark, has medicinal properties that are known to benefit human health and immune systems. Betulin cannot be broken down and utilized by our bodies if it is harvested directly from the bark of the birch tree. When Chaga develop on birch trees they change the betulin’s chemistry, transforming the compound into a form digestible to humans. The healing powers of Wild Chaga have been well documented over the past fifty years.
You only require a small amount of Chaga for 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.
