100% Green Tea.. wondering about antioxidants..
    #3301789 - 10/31/04 07:22 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Since green tea is rich in anti-oxidants, and the loss of the active ingredient in shrooms is due to it's oxidation, is there any reason to believe that brewing shrooms in green tea would be more potent that say, a flavered tea like cranberry apple?

Once the loss of the active ingredient occurs, due to oxidation, there would be no way to get it back. So, brewing shrooms in green tea would not be able to make it more potent, unless of course the tea contained psilocybin to begin with.

The drying process is what oxidizes shrooms.

Tea is great, but any potency lost is lost due to heat.

Potency loss is really marginal. Not worth worrying about.

Antioxidants rid your body of free radicals - its a different process to the oxidisation of psilocin...
Green tea is good for you metabolism though :smile:
