Magic mushrooms are a group of mushrooms known for their psychedelic effects. Also known as shrooms, these mushrooms have been used throughout history for spiritual, ritual, and even medical purposes. More recently, the use of magic mushrooms as an alternative therapy has started to gain some traction, especially as research suggests they may have mental benefits.
Shrooms can be used in various ways, and while some users may prefer to simply eat magic mushrooms just as they would regular mushrooms, it’s better to learn how to make delicious magic mushroom tea. Brewing shrooms into a tea makes it much more pleasant to consume and can even speed up the onset of effects. Plus, you can add flavorings to make it even more enjoyable. Here’s everything you need to know about making magic mushroom tea.
How Does Magic Mushroom Tea Work?
Magic mushroom tea is one of the best ways to use magic mushrooms. Although magic mushrooms can be eaten dry, the taste is incredibly bitter and will linger in your mouth for a while, making the experience unpleasant. When brewed into tea, you’ll still get the effects of shrooms but in a much more refreshing form.
Shroom Tea is made by crushing dried shrooms and brewing them with tea. You’ll end up with a powerful beverage infused with psilocybin- the substance in magic mushrooms that delivers its beneficial effects. While you might still catch some of the strong taste of shrooms, you can mask it using flavored tea or flavorings such as honey, ginger, cinnamon or anything else you like.
When you drink Magic Mushroom Tea, the psilocybin is processed by your digestive system and converted into psilocin. Psilocin is the activated form of psilocybin that induces the effects shrooms are known for. While you may need to wait up to 45 minutes to feel the effects, it’s a much faster and better way to consume magic mushrooms than eating them and depending on how fast your metabolism is, you may feel effects in as little as 15 minutes.
What You Need To Make Magic Mushroom Tea
Before you can make Magic Mushroom Tea, you’ll need to make sure you have everything you need. Making Shroom Tea isn’t too different from making regular tea, although you’ll need some dried shrooms as well as a few basic kitchen items.
First of all, you’ll need to make sure you have magic mushrooms. There are many different species of magic mushrooms and these can vary in terms of how much psilocybin they contain. While they can be found on the ground in some areas, picking magic mushrooms yourself is risky and should be avoided.
The safest and most convenient way to get magic mushrooms for your magic mushroom tea is to buy Magic Mushrooms online. You can find a range of dried shrooms that are easy to grind and add to your tea.
For making Magic Mushroom Tea, make sure you have a coffee filter for straining your tea, two mugs or cups, a tea bag (any kind will do), and any flavorings you want to add. You’ll also need a pot for boiling water.
How To Make Magic Mushroom Tea
You don’t need to be an expert on shrooms to make Magic Mushroom Tea. The process is surprisingly straightforward and you’ll end up with a potent psilocybin-infused beverage in no time. Of course, it’s important to avoid drinking too much the first time you use it as the effects can be quite strong. Here’s how to make it.
- 3.5 grams of dried magic mushrooms
- 1 cup of water
- A tea bag
- Flavorings of your choice
Step 1: Start by boiling 1 cup of water in a pot and crushing your shrooms. You can crush your shrooms into small pieces by hand or use a grinder to speed up the process. While 3.5 grams will give you a strong dose, you may want to start with 1-2 grams of dried shrooms to get used to the effects.
Step 2: Once your water boils, remove it from the heat and put your crushed shrooms in an empty cup or mug. Once the water cools, add it to the cup along with the shrooms. Allow at least 10 minutes for your shroom tea to steep.
Step 3: After 10-15 minutes, strain the Shroom Tea into an empty cup to separate the liquid from the leftover mushrooms. You can now add your teabag and any flavorings you want, such as honey, ginger, and cinnamon. Citric ingredients such as lemon or orange can enhance the speed and intensity of the effects, so use with caution.
Step 4: Once your tea has been fully infused and cooled, it’s ready to drink. Try drinking a small amount at first as the effects can be quite strong for beginners. You can also use your leftover mushrooms to make another cup of Magic Mushroom Tea following the same instructions.
Is Shroom Tea Better Than Eating Shrooms?
While some users may find that simply eating magic mushrooms is easier, there are many benefits to making Magic Mushroom Tea instead. For one, infusing your mushrooms into tea will mask the bitter taste and make it much more enjoyable to consume, especially as you can add your favorite flavorings.
Drinking Mushroom Tea can also enhance the effects of psilocybin- many users find that the effects hit them quicker when consumed in the form of tea. What’s more, adding certain ingredients such as lemon or orange juice can make the effects stronger.
The effects of Mushroom Tea can come on quicker but also taper off faster. However, this is a plus for many users who want to avoid long-lasting effects or unwanted side effects. Plus, you can easily take a microdose by drinking a small amount of tea or using a small dose of shrooms.
Learning how to make Magic Mushroom Tea is easy and will come in handy for anyone who wants to test out the effects of psilocybin for themselves. Make sure you avoid drinking too much your first time and you’ll have a safe and positive experience.
