Author Notes

On cold nights when a warming drink sounds like the ticket, I have enjoyed experimenting with toddies. Here is my latest one using mushroom tea. The earthy mushroom flavors come through brightened by the lemon. —Sagegreen

What You'll Need
  • 1 walnut size of broken chaga and reishi chunks
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons honey, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2-3 ounces bourbon, depending on taste
  • 2 lemon wheels for garnish
  1. Simmer the broken chunks of chaga and reishi in water just below boiling for 30 minutes.
  2. Strain and pour the tea into 2 cups or heat-resistant glasses.
  3. Stir in half the honey, lemon and bourbon into each cup. Garnish each with a lemon wheel.
