In traditional herbalism chaga is known for being

-an adaptogen
-a immune modulator
-a strong antioxidant

we source our chaga through a very good friend of ours who was one of the first people introducing this powerful mushroom from russia onto the west. 20 years of field research has lead him to an in depth knowledge of how to use this unique and incredible mushroom. it is of outmost importance to pick the mushroom in the right time and from the right trees to get the best quality chaga possible.

when chaga is collected in the wrong time of the year ( later winter, spring and early summer) it loses much of its valuable power. in the later winter it is dormant and in the spring it is watery as the sap is rising and most the nutrients are washed away. it is therefore essential to collect after the peak of summer around 15th august in the  northern latitudes where it grows.

many people who sell and advertise chaga miss the point that it is not the mushroom but the tree which is giving you the amazing health benefits. therefore it is of utmost importance to only pick chaga from strong and healthy birch tress during the right time of the year. most products on the marked do not fulfil any of the above mentioned requirements.

we guarantee that our chaga is the most powerful chaga available on the marked.

how to prepare chaga tea from chunks

chaga is a very hard mushroom and one can extract several brews from a chunk. we recommend to simmer the chaga chunks in hot water for several hours. the amount of water and chaga chunks depends on personal taste. for people new to it we suggest to experiment around but one can start by using 25g of chage and let it simmer in a liter of water for 2-4 hours and modify the amount of chaga and the volume of water to find the personal sweet spot. the chaga can be reused several times until the tea brewed looses its strength. make sure to let the chaga chunks dry out properly after using them to avoid mouldy formations.
