How to make Reishi tea:
Pretty simple. The amounts are up to you. A standard
reishi recommendation is 3 - 5 grams a day, although doses up to 15
grams are not uncommon for more serious illnesses.
If you don't have a scale, know that 3 grams is about 1
heaping tablespoon of broken or ground reishi pieces.
The amount of water is your choice as well. It all
depends on how many cups of tea you want to drink. I use about 4 - 5
cups of water for every 3 - 5 grams of reishi (you can see how exact I
am about this). This will boil down to a fraction of the original
Smaller pieces are better for a hot water extraction.
That said, have you ever tried to pulverize
I once broke a coffee grinder blade trying to break one apart!
Use whatever you have to break them into pieces. If you
have an appliance that will grind them, that's great. Otherwise you can
try to cut with a heavy blade or break apart pieces with your hands. If
this is all too much work you can still use a whole dried mushroom per
pot of water.
An easy solution is to buy a pre-sliced bag of dried
reishi. This will save you the trouble of having to break them apart.
Bring the water to a boil in a stainless steel or ceramic
pot. Don't use aluminum for such a prolonged boiling process.
Add the mushroom pieces. Reduce the heat until the
mixture is simmering, not outright boiling. Let it simmer for 2 hours.
Remove from the heat, strain, and set aside. Allow the
liquid to cool a little, as it's quite hot. You can repeat the process
with the strained pieces until the resulting extraction is no longer
bitter or colored.

What is the Reishi Mushroom?
Reishi mushroom (Ling Zhi) is a very rare and precious Chinese
medicine (herb).Since immemorial time, only royalty had the
privilege of consuming it. Reishi mushroom with its medical efficacy was
attested to the ancient Chinese medical texts, known in Japan as "Shinnoh
Honzohkyo" and the "Chinese Outline ofHerbs"
written by Li Sze Tsun of the Ming Dynasty. There are 365 kinds of
medicine that are classified and explained in both texts. Reishi mushroom
has been ranked the ‘ Number One Herb ’ among the 365 recognized herbs. In
"Shinnoh Honzohkyo", six kinds of reishi mushrooms (blue, red,
yellow, white, black and purple) are fully explained and the red reishi
has been ranked first among them.
Reishi mushrooms contain amino acids, proteins,
polysaccharides and triterpenoids. These active ingredients have benefits
