As for the tea, in the refrigerator it would probably retain its magic for a while, but it would spoil within a week most likely. If you put it in the freezer and let it freeze on the other hand, it would probably last quite a bit longer.

Quote: Bklstheman said: I was just wondering which would be the fastest way to dry mushrooms between keeping a light over them or blow a fan on them? I've read up on both I just would like to know which way is faster
If you have 40 bucks, go to walmart and get a dehydrator with a heat setting that goes down to at least 95 degrees. I have one made by NESCO. It works great. Others will tell you to use a fan. I would avoid using a light, particularly if they are fresh- doing so will cause whatever little critters may be in them to grow and spread. You'll likely get maggots.
Also this one is kind of a what if question. If I go ahead and make some tea, how long will the tea last? As if I make it will it start to loose some magic in a day, week, month?
Tea will be okay in the fridge for 3 or 4 days but then will start to do like any other juice- mold will start to take hold on it. I don't think freezing the tea is a good idea. Others may have some experience with this and say otherwise. I think the best storage method is to dry them on a dehydrator and then blend them into a powder. Make sure they are completely dry (cracker dry). The powder can be put in little baggies (plastic zip locs) and stored in a cool dark place and will last a very long time- probably a year or more, though I've never kept them that long.
