Like coffee? Want healthy alternatives to Starbucks? Want less caffeine and more immune support? This is for you!
I love making this warm drink on a chilly Autumn morning or before work as a gentle pick-me-up. Chaga has immune modulating properties, making it the perfect drink to help fight off colds & flu.
1. Boil about 4 chaga chunks for an hour in a gallon of water. Strain away the chaga pieces and store them in the freezer for future use. They can be reused around 5 times. Refrigerate any tea you don’t immediately need and it will keep for 2 days.
2. Brew a batch of fresh coffee. I like any organic fair trade brand.
3. Combine 4 oz chaga tea with 4 oz coffee in a mug.
4. Add a splash of your favorite milk (organic cow milk, almond milk, macadamia milk, etc), and three spoons of organic pure maple syrup. We use homemade syrup from our silver maples for a slight butterscotch flavor.
