shroom tea or not?
    #2926693 - 07/25/04 07:22 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

me and some friends can either just down an 8th each or go for a batch of shroom tea. we've never done tea and we think it would be interesting to try that. i'd like to hear some opinions of shroom tea and also maybe a recipe to follow. cheers

try grinding up your shrooms into a fine powder, mix up this powder in some iced tea (snapple or similier) or juics. Drink it down and strap in.

be carful though, the powder can spill, also, pour a little extra juice or tea in the bottle or cup to rinse. the easiest thing to do is take a bottle of snapple, pour out like half of it, then pour the powder in, cap the bottle and shaka shaka.

oh, i was thinking there would be more to the recipe, like a nice herbal tea mixed with stuff to make it not taste like poo ass. but you do grind up the powder? do you filter the powder and steep it like a teabag? i guess i can google it but i would like to see what kind of stuff you all have tried in regards to shroom tea.

also, is the onset quicker, the trip shorter?

well that's not shroom tea, but it's easy as hell and you don't need to heat up water. As for fatser onset, I smoked a joint after this, after we where through, I started to feel them comeing on.

Steeping the mushrooms in tea is a very effective method of consumption, I followed the "simple mushroom recipe" from Erowid:

http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_prep2.shtml

And then added a load of chocolate nesquik powder. Just tasted like normal hot chocolate.

I found the onset was /much/ quicker, things were starting to take on their shrooming appearance before I even finished all the tea. Supposedly psilocybin is absorbed into the water but not psilocin, resulting in a different trip, but I didn't notice much difference.

I've found tea to have a quicker come up and down. I've had inconsistent results with actually brewing tea though, so I would agree with gdman.

One time I did tea, I didn't trip very hard at all, and it was 4 grams of shrooms too. Another time I tripped more balls than ever. The come up was fast and intense.

Once I didn't have a comeup... I was sober one second, and by the next second everything around me was breathing...

The tea works very well imo. It weakens the shroom feeling on your stomach and body a lot and its much easier to take down.

I'm a big fan of using chai tea or hot chocolate and the ground up mushroom powder idea. It's worked like a charm every time. I believe using hot liquid brings the psilocybin out of the shrooms and into the water. It is absorbed immediately, starting in your mouth, so you will have a very fast come up. I've found this to be most pleasant. Using cold liquid is just like swallowing a pill. It can take just as long as eating them and can have varied results. Bottom line, do what you want to do! Peace

I forgot to mention though, don't use boiling water, this can diminish your psilocybin content.

I too was curious about this as i have a few mushrooms that dont look to be in the best conditions for eating fresh but if the psilocin is not also absorbed i'll probably go for drying them then eating.

btw AFAIK if the psilocin is not absorbed then yes there will be a different effect (less potent) as psilocin is the actual chemical responsible for the effect. Psilocybin is converted into psilocin in the body so in the end you just get the one chemical effecting you.

Am i Wrong?

Yes, you're quite right. I guess there are two factors : the amount of active ingredient that /can/ be absorbed using the given method, and from that, how well it is absorbed into the body. With tea, the psilocin isn't used, but it is probably a more effective way to absorb into the body than the stomach breaking down the actual mushrooms.

Yeah I see what u mean. That even if there is less active chemical present, it is absorbed faster into the body and hence an equally potnet trip (speculation).

I was thinking that maybe you were refering to the trip being different due to the psilocybin/psilocin ratio, like the THC/CBD ratio effecting the effect of mj. And my point was that this would not be the case as its only the one chemical that is active in mushrooms.

But i get what you're saying.
