Tea...
    #390399 - 09/10/01 06:05 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I was wondering what peoples experiences are with mushie tea. I'm curious because I've read that heat is extremely damaging to the psilocybin and couldn't see how dunking the shrooms in boiling water would help maters.

i've made tea from liberty caps many times before. apparently although a lot of people say that any heating is bad, psylocybin only breaks down at temperatures far above the boiling point of water. as far as psylocin goes, i think this may be reduced by boiling, but many people have said that it is not enough to be noticable.

one thing you could do (haven't tried it yet, but plan to), is instead of simmering the shrooms in a pot, just grind them up, but them in a bowl and pour some water out of a boiled kettle on to them. add a bit of lemon juice (apparently the vit. C aids the extraction of 'active' ingredients), and leave for ten mins. this way, they are in hot water, but arent being vigourously boiled or anything like that.

after ten minutes drink the water, and if you feel like it, eat the shroom sludge that is left (i always do this after boiling, just to make sure i get my moneys worth ;) )

This works just fine (pour the hot water over the shrooms, don't boil them in it) but what I've found works even better is a cold water/ alcohol extraction. Psilocybin is highly water-soluble, psilocin (the major component in semilanceata, cyanescens, & some other species) isn't, but dissolves readily in ethyl alcohol.

Grind or powder the shrooms several days before ingestion, then place in a jar with a couple ounces of your favorite hard liquor (not the expensive single-malt Scotch, though, the shrooms will ruin the flavor) & store in the fridge. When you're ready to fly, chug it down (including dregs) with a beer or soda chaser. Do this on a relatively empty stomach, you're launching within 15-20 minutes & peaking intensely within an hour. The slightly relaxing effect of the alcohol helps blunt the anxiety of liftoff a bit, but doesn't muddy the trip.

I have had shroom tea many times, in my exprience, it is a 'softer' high, but has a lot of colourful visuals- Although I believe some potency is lost, it is not enough to make me stop drinking- I also eat the shroomies after wards- I want to mak sure i get it all in! - A 10 minute steep in just boiled water will do- its nice to sip the shroom teat under a shady tree- then have a conversation with it!

A FOAF makes the tea first, then pours it over the mushies and lets it steep for 10 min. After you drink the tea, be sure to eat the mush slush at the bottom!
