tea

Please forgive me if I seem ignorant,

could anyone, who is an expert on the matter and not guessing, tell me if it is safe to consume in any way shape or form shrooms that have been steeped for tea.

Particularly, if the tea was made last weekend and the shrooms have been stored.

Thank You,
shroomin milo

Making tea with the mushrooms should make no difference in the mushrooms themselves (other than hydrating them). The real question (and you're the only one who can answer it) is if the mushrooms have gone bad since then. Is there any visible mold on them? Smell them - many bacteria produce strong odors. If they look like they are rotting, moldy, or anything like that, don't eat them. Use the same judgement you would use for food. If you have any doubts, don't eat them. Food poisoning is nasty, and you should have to be pretty desperate to risk it.

Happy mushrooming!

Boiling will kill bacteria and mold. The problem is that you need to get rid of any toxins they may have produced. Many of the toxins produced by bacteria and molds are not destroyed by boiling, and some of them are among the most poisonous substances known.

In general, you should evaluate *anything* you are considering eating. If you pick wild mushrooms, don't eat them if they're rotting. I know that sounds stupid, but there are many poisonings every year where somebody ate rotting, nasty mushrooms. If you wouldn't eat an apple in that condition, why would you eat anything else like that?

Glad to hear you're not planning to make a bid for this year's Darwin Awards.

Everything posted above was out of fun, none should be taken serious. I am currently under the influence so take that into consideration.
