Reishi Tea

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Course Drinks


  • 5 grams Fresh or Dried Sliced or Broken Reishi Mushrooms
  • 5 cups Water
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. Honey (optional)


  • Pour the water into a pot or any other container and bring it to a boil. Make sure you don't use an aluminum container as the process requires heating for long, and the metal is neither a perfect absorber nor a reflector of heat.
  • Add Reishi and let it boil for another half an hour. If you prefer a strong flavor, you may let it boil for longer, but keep adding more water as it evaporates.
  • Turn off the heat and let the mushrooms steep in it for another 30 minutes, even longer if possible. Reishi mushroom is woody, therefore it needs time to steep.
  • Now you may add optional honey to taste and stir it well.
  • Strain the mixture into a jar using a strainer or a cheesecloth.
  • Drink hot, or store in refrigerator in a sealed jar to enjoy cold.
