Use these chaga chunks to flavour your kefir, kombucha, or other fermented drinks, or make a delicious decoction!
This wild mushroom that comes from sustainable wild harvesting in Quebec, is consumed for its woody taste and high antioxidant content.
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) has been consumed for centuries in Russia, Siberia, and other Northern countries for its general health benefits.
It is said to strengthen the immune system, fight inflammation, and lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. (ref.)
This chaga mushroom, which grows on birch trees in Quebec, has been responsibly harvested. Its woody taste is reminiscent of coffee but without its bitterness.
To flavour 3 litres of kombucha, let 12g (2 tablespoons) of chaga simmer in 500ml of water (2 cups) for 2 to 4 hours. Filter and mix this decoction with kombucha when bottling.
The chaga chunks can be reused once or twice, but the flavour will lose its intensity each time.
