chaga, Inonotus obliquus, tea|
In 2014 I started a personal journey to improve my health through food. From low carb to high fat to superfoods and botanicals my eyes were opened to just how much food affects our health. We truly are what we eat.
Our tag line at 180 Foods Co is \"Make the turn to better health through food!\" and our goal is to help bring hard to find superfoods like Chaga, Elderberries and other foods and botanicals to as many people as we can.
I hope you\\\'ll join us!

#1833 – Canadian Chaga Tea Pebbles, 227g
2 more bags available. Order number of bags.
Chaga Tea Pebbles are best for long, slow brewing by the stove pot or crock pot because they are so easy to collect, dry and reuse. This 100% wild, sustainably harvested Canadian Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is made up of whole Chaga and contains no additives. Carefully broken into Tea Pebbles and air dried, our Chaga has a moisture level of less than 10% which means you get more Chaga per gram when compared with other sources. Can also be used to make tinctures or ground down finer for use in baking or smoothies. Looking for a quick brew Chaga tea? Try our bagging tea cut with a paper tea bag or our loose tea cut with a traditional tea ball or tea strainer.
How to enjoy: To make tea, add 1 heaping tbsp per 250mL of water to a covered pot and simmer for 2-3 hours. Crock pots work great for this as you can control the temperature to prevent boiling. Do not allow to boil. Reuse 3- 4x, air drying between use. Refrigerate excess tea. Also ideal for making tinctures.
Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) Chaga is a unique and complex source of nutrition linked to autoimmune boosting benefits. Chaga is an elusive mushroom that grows mainly on birch trees. Unlike most mushroom, Chaga grows over many years and can often be 15-25 years old when harvested. Chaga is often mistaken for a burl or knot with a hard, black exterior that appears charred or burnt. The inside is rich orange and cork like in texture. Chaga has been used for centuries as a folk medicine for a wide range of ailments. As a tea, Chaga is a complex source of nutrition linked to many health benefits. The Chaga mushroom is renowned for its high levels of antioxidants, beta glucans, phytonutrients, polysaccharides, minerals and vitamins. Chaga mushrooms also absorb a unique and beneficial compound from their birch tree host, called betulinic acid. Betulinic acid is an oxidation product of betulin, a triterpenoid, believed to have potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Chaga Bagging Tea Cut: Add 1 tbsp per 250mL to a paper tea bag or fine mesh tea ball. Add boiling water and steep.

Chaga Loose Tea Cut: Add one heaping tablespoon to a tea ball or strainer and place in cup. Add boiling water and steep as long as possible. Reuse 3-4x, air drying between use.
