mush tea
    #2208374 - 12/29/03 08:19 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

the search engine isn't working, i havn't been online in a while, so if this is a redundant question, forgive me.
does making a tea out of the mushrooms take away the anxiety? i heard that mixing mushrooms with water lets the chemicals oxidize and the trip changes.
can someone explain this to me?

no, all it does is allow the chemicals to be absorbed into the bloodstream quicker since there is no digestion of plant matter. it doesnt change the chemicals action, only the amount of time of onset/peak. personally i like tea wayy better.

well i think melting point is 260 f around. and boiling water is about 220 f. so using boiling water should be fine. but personally i usually use steaming water not boiling. just to be safe, it takes a little more time but i just like doing it like that.

Do you eat the soggy shrooms afterward? I think i might be allergic to the solids in mushrooms, and am hoping to trip hard off tea. Possible?

this is what i do... it works great:

place dry mushrooms in coffee grinder. powderize.

put powder in mug or pot. pour hot water into mug or pot.

stir a little, then allow to stand for 15-20 minutes.

strain liquid through paper towel into a mug. squeeze all of the good stuff out of the mush. discard mush.

add teabag, hot chocolate mix, iced tea mix, kool aid mix, etc. reheat if desired.

drink... slowly.  :mushroom2:

if you can't powderize it, you can cut it into a bunch of little peices with a pair of scissors... in that case it's best to stir the liquid for the 20 minutes. there is no noticable loss of potency.

Add some lemon/lime juice to acidify the water. It should help to dissolve the good stuff. Let it soak for awhile, maybe and 30 min to an hour. That should get all of it out of the shrooms. If you want to be extra sure you got everything, you could repeat the process using fresh water.
