did i make this tea the correct way?
    #2765653 - 06/05/04 09:14 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

good morning all,
i had a very succsesful hunt yesterday and decided to try to make some tea. i took 1 quart and 1 pint of water and brought it to a boil, after it began to boil i took 10 1/2 ounces of fresh field picked cubensis out of the refridgerator andplaced them into the boiling water. after the cold mushrooms were placed into the water it stoped boiling so i let it come back up to almost boiling again and turned the heat off. covered pot and let it sit for 20 min.
after it had set i placed the tea ( mushrooms too ) in to a blender and blended well. then strained that and presssed the remaining juice from the strained pulp.
after i was done i had an extra half pint of liquid than i started with ( i assume it was water from the mushrooms ).
i know doseage questions are not allowed but would you assume this tea to be strong or weak? i know you would have no way of telling unless you tried it your self, i just wanted a few opinions before i drank to much or to little, and also if the way i made the tea sounds like it would work ok. i know eating straight is better but i had no where to dry theses and they were kinda ugly.

thanks all and sorry for the long assed post.

I know this isn't overly helpful (or helpful at all really) but you mentioned you brought the water back up to almost boiling after putting the mushrooms in. From what I've read this might have been a no-no. Depending on how hot the water was and how long they were in there, it's possible the heat damaged or broke down the psilocybin.

the amount of time they were brought back to boiling was just a few seconds.

Sounds like your fine.. as long as it wasnt extreme heat youd be fine the most it would do is kill potency a tad.. i bet its still pretty strong

ok the way i had it figured is i took a shot glass and filled up a quart jar one shot at a time and go 20 shots. 10 shots for the pint.
10&1/2 ounces should dry to close to 30 grams if im lucky. so with heat killing some potency i am estimating that there is .5g dry per shout of the tea, since i started with 30 shots of water, and what should be 30 dry grams of fungi.

does that sound like a resonable estimate to anyone else?

thanks guys.

My math sucks, but it sure sounds potent. I made tea only once and I probably over-boiled it to death, but it knocked me on my ass. I also used 1/2 ounce of dry for two people and I didn't blend in the shrooms and strain em'. Good luck, sounds like fun ahead.

You need only to pour as much water as you want to drink into a pan and boil the water. Then put your shrooms inthe boiling water and turn off the heat.

Then let the shrooms seep inthe water for 15 minutes. Thats all.

That simple.

that is simple. so i could have just put one pint of water to the 10 1/2 oz's and would only have to drink a very small amount?
also one other thing i am unsure of is do you drink the mushroom matter with the tea or keep it out.

sorry for the dumbassed questions.

It sounds pretty strong. i like to add some flavored tea bags to the pot as it steeps to make it not so shroomy tasting. once you've removed the mushroom matter just compost it or something, all the goodies are in the tea now. :smile:

does making shroom tea decrease the potency compared to just eating them raw? assuming you put as much in the tea as you would be eating them straight...

Well,
Rather than risk boiling away potenential visions, I simply take a quart blender, add a can of lemonade(frozen) mix, add shrooms (one dozen dried, or 6 fresh field picked sized mushies) fill the rest of the way with h2o, and let it spin. The concentrated sugar and lemon juice mask the flavor, but the color is just blue/purplish...kinda weird lookin'. You get enough for four glassfuls, each enough for a peasant trip, or a double dose will have you talking to inanimate obects and watching geometric patterns in the clear blue sky. Don't forget to blink!

well i dosed last nite on some pan subs and cant try the tea for a while now. all of my friends are triped out at the momment so they dont want any, so what would be the best way to strore this tea.
using the fucking search engine i found the storing in the refridgerator is only good for a few days, well its allready been in there since i started this post, and that the freezer is a better way of storage. but i could not find out how long it will store frozen.
any tips on preservation are greatly appreciated.
thanks

i cant help with your storage question but i might be able to help with a dosage estimate. according to what ive read mushrooms are 92% water. so going by that youd have 23.52g dry to work with. if you have 30 shots worth of liquid magic, each shot should have 0.784 dry grams worth. however, all mushrooms are different so if they were 90% water you should have 0.98 dry grams worth per shot. say you would be happy with a 2g trip it should be ok to assume that 2.5 shots should be equal to 1.96-2.45 dry grams. now this is just what i think is correct. it sounds right to me but i may be wrong. as always it'd be best to get a second opinion on my guess here.

I think I should add to this thread, perhaps adding some tips for the next time you make tea (or anyone else thinking of doing so).

1- Add a bit of acid (lemon juice or orange juice is fine).
2- Use slightly more than you want to dose on.
3- Extract more than once (this is very important, I extract mine 2-3 times), squeezing them out well each time.
4- Dry mushrooms work much better than fresh ones.
5- You can leave the mushroom pulp in, or strain it out well with a coffee filter for an easier on the stomach brew.
6- Powder or chop them up well before placing in the hot water.
7- Stir the mix repeatedly, and give it plenty of time to soak. Do not rush the process.
8- Slam it if you want it to hit you like a brick, or sip slowly for a more natural onset.

Edit: Freezing the mushrooms will also help. Freezing ruptures the cell walls, helping the extraction process when using fresh mushrooms.

From now on, just make as much as you need per dose, I wouldn't keep it for more than a week or two... I may be wrong, but tea is not the best form of storage.

As for potency, if you make it right, 2g of cubes in tea will feel at least as potent as if you eat 'em straight.

Will there be potency loss?

Probably.

Then why won't u notice?

Because potency loss is minimal and tea comes on faster and stronger than just eating the shrooms. Sometimes, this quick come up sends you farther than you'd normally go.

Enjoy... and make a smaller batch next time.

I have no experience storing tea longer than 2 days. It was fine after that amount of time. I refigerated it of course, I think that would be good for short term storage. Freezing it would probably work for a longer duration, but I am just speculating on that.

I edited my above methods to include freezing the mushrooms. I forgot about that one  :blush:
