Get the most out of Shroom Tea, please give me your view!
    #3943667 - 03/20/05 12:54 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I have a friend hwo despises the taste of shrooms, she's wanting to try them but can't successfully get them all down...

Therefore i've bought Hawaiian's as you obviously need less for a good effect  :thumbup:

I am going to make mushroom tea like usual but normally i drink the tea and also the shrooms, can i boil a pan, boil the shrooms in a cup of water and then just give my friend the water to drink... ? Will this be enough for a good trip?

I need to know preferably...

Good dosage for Hawaiians... ? (I was thinking 14g approx each)

A cup of water or more?

How long to boil them?

Thanks in advance

Mike  :laugh:

I personally dont boil my mushrooms. First chop up your mushrooms and put em in a cup. A tea bag works perfect for this but isnt needed. Pour like 1 to 2 cups over the mushies depending on how strong you want the brew to be. I find that less water is better but not too little. Let them soak for like atleast 15 minutes and stir and smash em around in the cup. Strain, Drink, and then trip!make sure to get all the juices out of the mushy material

There's nothing really wrong with making hot shroom tea. But yes, you should not boil them, at least for long, as this will break down some of the psilocin/ybin. I find boiling water, then pouring this over the shrooms and letting steep to work well.

Agreed! Grind, add OJ, knock em back.

If they're fresh, munch away LOL! :laugh:

I thought THAT was a pretty snazzy idea, too - if ya cannot stomach the taste. :laugh:

Actually:

These are *fresh* at this dose, right?

If they are fresh then really, IMHO, the best way to go is just EAT them up. :laugh:

You could get all creative and process them in a blender qith OJ and chug that down, but the *texture* of it would kill me.

Although, for her first time, I would get her to chew those bad boys :mushroom2: EDIT: Oops! I see it's NOT her first time? Or it is? Anyway, however you like but making them small and chugging in juice would be easiest.

Have a good one! :cool:

Yes i am talking FRESH obviously  :tongue:

Its not her first time...

Thanks for the various replies but not all that helpdul  :thumbdown:
You see its the texture she cant handle so my question now is:

Boiling water/very hot - about a cup full, over say 10g of hawaiians, then leave these for a while stirring occasionally? How long should i leave them? Then if she drinks the water will she get a good effect?

I dont mind eating them as they are but she doesnt like mushrooms  :confused:

Cheers for all the help guys  :mushroom2::thumbup:

with tea you'll get the optimal effect if you eat the shrooms too but it will certainly work too to drink just the water.

Do you have a blender or something like that? if so you could just dump the shrooms in it with some orange juice and make a smoothy.

Tried the blender method last week, tried them in soup and other methods and to no avail!  :thumbdown: Says she'll try them in a tea aslong as she doesn't need to eat the actual shrooms so we'll see what happens tonight... Just watching a film now (Hitch  :thumbup:) but will get the tea sorted around 11pm tonight and we'll both be happily tripping off of about 10g of hawaiian (is 10g too much for a "proper" first time? Or is it ok in tea you recken?)

I'll probably wait until hers kick in and then make sure shes cool with it all and then i'll join the party with 10g+  :laugh:

My rooms fairly large, huge array of music, ambient and chill out mainly, got 21" monitor with Winamp Milkdrop Visuals  :wink: (The dogs danglies) and a Laserpod < Information here >so should be a good night, if its ok with you lot i'll do an "as it happens" trip report if your interested  :smile:

Thanks for your time
Mike

Not sure if it's true or w/e, but it's healthy, so who cares

Crush up a vitiam C tablet and put that in the mix, i've heard that it increases/and or prolongs the trip...Even if it isn't true, it's still good for ya haha...:thumbup:

How long for them to kick in with gel caps? Ive heard that vegetable ones take longer than the gelatin to break down. :smile:

If you completely gag with the taste of shrooms, making a tea will help slighty but not totally. If you do make a tea, i recommend trying to get a flavor of tea you already enjoy drinking rather then cooking up some random recipe on the net. I like Arizona Green Tea, so i bring that to a boil, take it off the stove, mash the shrooms up for a few minutes, cool in fridge, strain and drink.

14 grams of Wet shrooms can be dried to around 1.4 grams...then you pulverize then in a coffee grinder, using a basic cap Tek exhibited here at the shroomery---jsut packem in 3 00 caps an you've got shroom capsules! I love this method for dried shrooms but wet ones always just tasted like food to me. Takes a tad longer to kick in but nothing noticable and its better than having anxiety and stomach cramps on your way up.

Get bowl.
Spoon in high quality chocolate pudding.
Add powdered fungi.
Stir.
Eat.

Wait.

Ask now: Why has Nature made them taste this way? Am I approaching properly?

My wife does not like the taste of mushrooms either, and she cannot drink the tea because it still taste like shrooms to her.

She makes hot chocolate and adds the ground up shrooms 5 min before drinking, or Orange juice like said above. Or just take a big spoon full of honey and dip it in your stash.

Gel cap's take anywhere from 45min to 1h30m to kick in.

Have a great time!

Dont use boiling water. I think psilocybin starts breaking down at 60 degree Celsius. So let the cooking water rest a little while before pouring it over the grinded shroomies. Let it rest for a few minutes.
I added mint-tea and didn't taste anything other :wink:

Relatively speaking, Psilocybin is alot more stable that Psilocin which will be the first active psychoactive chemical to break down. In either case, they begin to decompose at high heats such as the heat from boiling but only after a considerable period of time. I've boiled my shrooms for 10 minutes straight and the tea still gave me a good trip (of course it may of been stronger if I boied em for a few mins.) My point is, get your water to a boil but then take off the burner when you add your chopped shrooms. You dont want to Cook them but being exposed to boiling water for a few minutes wont break down a noticeable amount of the active ingredients and you want the water to be HOT so the compounds can be aborbed into your tea.

I'm a tad bit confused...my buddy makes really good homemade tea (although the tea is storebought, so it's not really that homemade)...is it possible to make this homemade tea and grind up the shrooms with the tea in a blender? Will sugar have any effect on the active chmicals?
