Best mushroom tea recipes

Written by: Eva Zonneveld

While some folks relish the taste of mushrooms, they're certainly an acquired taste and not everyone's go-to snack. This is why many psychonauts prefer to consume their mushroom and truffle doses in tea form. Not only does it taste better, but it's also gentler on the stomach, and some recipes even enhance the effects.

Here are some all-time favorite recipes for both mushroom and truffle tea:

Honey Tea

This is a sweet brew, one of the basics.

  1. Chop up your mushroom or truffle dose into small bits to maximize surface area. The smaller the pieces, the more psilocybin will infuse into your tea.
  2. Boil a cup of water.
  3. Allow the water to cool slightly. It should be hot but not boiling.
  4. Place the truffles or mushrooms in a tea infuser and pour the hot water over them.
  5. Let the mushrooms steep for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Strain the tea into another cup, add honey, and sip slowly.

To get the most out of your mushrooms, repeat the process with the same mushroom dose and the tea extracted from the first round. This results in a super-concentrated magic brew.

Lemon Elixir

As the name suggests, this tea is made with fresh lemon juice. Not only does lemon add a tangy flavor, but the natural acid in lemon juice converts psilocybin into psilocin, enhancing the psychedelic effects and aiding faster absorption. Although the lemon elixir tea induces the effects of the mushrooms faster and more potently, it doesn't last as long as a typical trip.

  1. Chop your chosen mushrooms or truffles into tiny pieces to increase the exposed surface area.
  2. Place the chopped mushrooms in a cup and add some freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  3. Let the mushrooms soak in the lemon juice for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Boil some water and then let it cool just below boiling point. High temperatures destroy psilocybin.
  5. Pour the hot water into the lemon-mushroom mix and steep for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Strain the tea into another cup and enjoy!

Ginger Twist Tea

While the name references ginger, there's more to the flavor profile. Licorice pairs exceptionally well with mushrooms. You can opt for cut or dried licorice or tea bags that contain some.

  1. Chop your selected mushrooms or truffles into small pieces to maximize surface exposure.
  2. Add the mushrooms/truffles and your licorice choice (dried, cut, or a tea bag) to a cup.
  3. Boil a cup of water. Let it cool slightly and then pour it over the mushroom/truffle and licorice mix.
  4. Add a small piece of ginger, preferably washed and unpeeled, and a splash of fresh orange juice. This combo not only makes the tea delightful but also ensures it's easier on the stomach.
  5. Let the mixture steep for 10-15 minutes and savor it!

If you're a fan of ginger, grate it instead of adding a small piece and incorporate the freshly squeezed juice - the flavor will be much more pronounced.

These are some of the most beloved and commonly used recipes. Feel free to get creative with other herbs, such as steeping the mushrooms in strawberry tea for a few minutes. You could also try adding your mushrooms/truffles to mint tea. The possibilities are endless.
