Chaga tea (birch medicine)
 
I recently found out about this stuff about a month ago. It's the black growth/fungus found on the side of birch trees. This fungus does grow on other trees as well, but birch chaga is the one you want.

Tons of antioxidants, extremely good for digestive and immune health, great for nourishing the liver, and apparently is.very effective against free radicals in the body.

I brew it into iced tea (3 gallon jug in the fridge), and throw in a little natural honey and a quartered lemon. Tastes pretty much like regular iced tea. I drink about 3 cups a day.

Any other chaga drinkers around here? I'd be interested to hear others' experiences too.

I love all kinds of teas and tisanes but I have never heard of this. I am going to have to give it a try where do you buy it?

I cut a chunk off a birch tree in my backyard. Looks kind of expensive to buy online.

It turned me into a newt.

But I got better.
