Tea question
    #897934 - 09/21/02 07:25 PM (19 years, 2 months ago)

I want to trip tonight but i usually stay awake for about 8 hours if i just eat em like normal. I am hoping to trip fast and hard with mushroom tea but i have some questions. If i am looking to trip as much as 3 g would make me trip eating them, how much should i put into the tea? ( figure in for psylocin breakdown due to heat) Am I correct in that i should boil the shrooms in water for about 10 min. ,this seems too long to me? ANd lastly, all me mushies are dry now, this wont matter will it, i.e. i dont have any fresh. thanks guys and girls.

3g will do you just fine. What I do is I simmer the chopped up (or ground if dry) mush for 30 minutes on a low, low boil. I then steep tea with it off the heat for another 15 minutes. Strain and sweeten to taste. You'll be tripping hard in 30 minutes.

This is how I do it and it works GREAT. Put your shrooms in a blender or food processer, and boil some water, add the boiling water to the blender and puree the shrooms. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes and add some orange juice concentrate, or cranberry juice, or whatever to taste (Kool aid, tea, anything really) occasionally I add frozen strawberries and a banana when i use OJ (Psychedelic smoothies) you cant taste the shrooms and its actually pretty good, just dont make it too sweet by overdoing it on the OJ concentrate. Sometimes it hits you REALLY hard and you might puke so drink it kind of slow depending how many shrooms you have in there. Good Luck

I am curious where you got the idea that psilocybin will break down due to heat when making tea. My Merck Index gives the melting point of psilocybin (after recrystallization from water) as 220 - 228 degrees Celsius (quite a bit hotter that boiling water), and doesn't mention decomposition.

The only decomposition that might occur that you would care about is that basic solutions will break down psilocin (which is produced from psilocybin in water). The simple solution is to make sure your water is acidic. Try adding a little lemon juice or vinegar before you make the tea and you should lose no potency at all.

Happy mushrooming!

I mix with real tea which is acidic and tastes good too.

toxic man, yes i just mean that psylocin breaks down. Remember that temperature that you read on a therm. is really an average. so the water touching individual psylocin molecules may be much hotter. in fact your states temp is not that much higher than the boiling point. that is what i was getting at. just a little thermodynamic statistics for ya. peace out. i am about to drink that tea rightnow!

That is celsius.
100 celsius is boiling point of water.

Don't boil the shrooms. Put the powdered shrooms in a mug and add the boiling water. Be careful as 3 grams will most likely kick your ass. Drink very slowly as they can come on like a freight train in as little as 10 minutes on an empty stomach.
