My sawdust block recently fruited 2 giant reishis and it inspired me to make some tea!
I experimented with my own recipe and found something that works pretty good but still has a slight bitter tang... Now with ginger reishi its not hard to find the ingredients for that recipe, but when it comes to the honey reishi it may be hard to find alot of the flowers... Your best bet would be growing your own or search for some teas that are already made from flowers of the such... i personaly grow some of the flowers in my room under a light for tea purposes but im sure u can find them for sale other places...
now heres 2 recipes
Ginger Reishi (found this online) 1 tbsp reishi powder (ground up reishi) 7-9 slices of fresh ginger root 1 and a half cups of water put in a pot, bring to boil, and simmer with ingredients in it for 10 minutes or so...
Honey Reishi (my own experiment) 1 tsp ground chamomile flowers 1 tsp ground chrysanthemum flowers 1 tsp ground lotus flowers 1 tsp ground linden flowers 1 tsp of lemon or orange zest 1 tbsp of reishi powder (ground reishi) put in a pot with 3 cups of water and bring to a boil, let simmer for 10 minutes. strain through a fine strainer into a canning jar, add honey till aqquired taste... let sit in a cool dark place in or sun with lid tightly on for a few days... enjoy!
Theres a brand of Tea called Chanakara and the meditation and wisdom flavor has all of those flowers plus others so if u put their tea bag in with this mix you will be set and not have to go rummaging around looking for certain flowers... this tea is very relaxing! i suggest u all try it... if your going to use the Chanakara the recipe goes like this
2 bags of chanakara meditation and wisdom (cut them open and put the herbs in the water) 1 tsp orange or lemon zest 1 tbsp of reishi powder
and follow the original instructions... this tea is very good for your skin, and will be very good for summer time when the suns out and about, im gonna stock up a few gallons of it myself... remember reishi is a wonderful medicinal mushroom and is pretty cheap at your local health food store. i suggest everyone try this tea at one time or another! u dont want cancer spots by the time ur 35
