Chaga is known for its ability to concentrate health-boosting compounds found in living birch trees (like betulinic acid). Within the mushroom, there are also several bioactive molecules, including beta-glucans, triterpenoids, and phenolic compounds that are believed to provide a range of health effects.‡ When turned into a tea, it makes a delicious and warming beverage known for its use as a preventative medicine.

Sourcing & production:

North Spore starts by seeking out native Chaga conks in the Maine woods. We carefully breakdown the Chaga into smaller chunks that we air-dry. When the Chaga has hardened and lost its moisture content we grind it using a turn-of-the-century food mill that allows for easy preparation of our tea.

How to prepare:

Simmer 1 tbsp in 4-6 cups of water for at least 20 minutes, or until the water is opaque and resembles back coffee. Strain the grounds out of the water and set aside. Grounds may be reused 2 or 3 times (make sure to simmer for extra time or follow the 'looks like black coffee' rule). Add cream and maple syrup to taste.
