Experience the healing power of the forest in every cup.

One of the most powerful adaptogenic fungi on the planet, Birch Boys Chaga can revitalize your life and wellness. Wild chaga has been used for centuries to support the immune system, energy and vitality. If you plan on making chaga tea each morning, and like having total control over the richness of your brew, our Loose Chaga Tea is a great bang for your buck.

Wild Chaga Tea has a mild, earthy-sweet flavor, similar to a black tea. It tastes great on its own or added to your favorite drink for a kick of health.

Each bag of Loose Chaga Tea contains 4oz of pure, wild chaga. You can freeze and reuse the leftover pulp from your brew. You can use this 2-3 times or until it no longer darkens the water to your liking. We recommend making your Loose Chaga tea Recipe with a reusable muslin or cloth tea bag to brew Loose Chaga Tea, rather than a tea ball. This is because the Loose Chaga Tea is fine and will fall through the holes of a traditional tea ball.

Why choose Wild Chaga? Wild Chaga can take years to grow naturally, all the while absorbing and concentrating a variety of healing compounds from the Birch tree. Cultivated chaga (sometimes not even grown on birch) only takes a few days/weeks to grow and will not contain the full spectrum of healing compounds found in real, wild chaga.


Ingredients: Organic Wild Chaga Sclerotium

Amazing for chaga chai!

I use BirchBoys Chaga two ways:
1) In a French Press with low acid freshly ground coffee.
2) In winter, simmered with whole chai spices.
A sustained vitality food, and a loyal customer.
