Psilocybin mushroom tea recipe for tripping
Do you want to brew an elixir with magic mushrooms but don't know how to prepare it properly?
In this section we explain the most important aspects of making tea with psilocybin mushrooms.
Common methods of consuming magic mushrooms
Let's briefly discuss the various ways to consume psilocybin mushrooms.
The easiest way to consume is to simply chew whole dried mushrooms and wash them down with water.
But many psychonauts don't like the taste of psilocybin mushrooms. After all, they don't taste like ordinary edible or gourmet mushrooms.
🍫 If you are among such people then you can eat mushrooms in form of mushroom chocolates. You can find how to make them in the Recipe for making mushroom sweets and mushroom chocolate section
☕️ Or you can make delicious mushroom tea or mushroom broth.
What mushrooms are needed for mushroom tea?
For making magic tea are suitable:
🔸 fresh whole mushrooms
🔸 dried whole or dry grinded mushrooms (in a coffee grinder)
🔸 frozen whole mushrooms
Fresh and frozen mushrooms have the highest concentration of psychoactive ingredients!
The way of drying/freezing and storing magic mushrooms affects the psychoactive substances content in mushrooms. Therefore, even with proper drying up to 50% of the psilocybin activity is lost.
How to dry or freeze mushrooms for storage and consumption you can find in the next guides

Mushroom tea vs chewing. How does water temperature affect psilocybin in mushrooms?
🌡 Partial decomposition of psilocybin into psilocin starts from +50°C or 122°F. That's why higher temperature isn't recommended for drying magic mushrooms in order to save the psilocybin in the mushrooms for long-term storage.
If heat mushrooms in water from +87°C or 189°F psilocybin is quickly and completely transformed into psilocin.
As we know, psilocin affects the brain and makes a transition into psychedelic trip.
Therefore, if consume mushrooms in the form of tea your body doesn't waste time on this metamorphosis and assimilates it faster. This is the main feature of mushroom tea! Mushroom tea works faster and the entrance to the trip is also faster.
Higher temperatures for making tea are acceptable to speed up the reaction.
However, such product must be taken fresh. It doesn't retain its psychoactive ingredients for a long period of time.
🌡 If heated from +137°C or 279°F or during prolonged boiling psychoactive components of psilocybin mushrooms are completely destroyed. They remain edible, but useless.

5. Let mushroom tea brew for 10-20 minutes.
6. Filter mushroom tea to get clear drink. Mushrooms can be thrown away, because almost all the psilocybin from the mushrooms has already dissolved in water.
