My Favorite Magical Brew in the Winter
Good Morning….I thought I would share one of my favorite hot tea brews for the winter.My first thought about winter is that often people associate it with cold and flu season. Perhaps we can change our thinking all together and see it as a time to go within and really strengthen our selves including our immune system.None the less our bodies still appreciate warmth on a cold, wintery morning. I know mine does. And why not feed the immune system with healthy gifts from nature and at the same time experience a complex, rich cup in the morning?So our first ingredient is Chaga. Chaga Mushroom is an immune building mushroom, in fact the Chinese call it the “king of plants” and in Siberia it is known as the “Gift from God” In Japan it is “Diamond of the Forest”. So you can see that nationally this mushroom holds some serious qualities of health and reverence. So I feel it is the perfect base to a morning tea brew. In fact I suggest having a pot of this going daily and make this the base of your soups, stews, and tea brews. The featured image shows you the type of chaga chunks I use in my brews.
