Now that psychedelics are well on their way to becoming mainstream as more states have decriminalized them, shroom tea is rising in popularity. If you can access psilocybin mushrooms from a trusted source like Better Mushroom Spores, follow our guide below to make nice brewed cup of shroom tea.
Guide To Making Shroom Tea
Making shroom tea at home can be enjoyable, but you cannot use mushroom gummies or chocalates for these recipes. Shroom species will have varying levels of psilocybin and other properties, so make sure you research your mushroom spores ahead of time.
Once you have legally purchased shrooms, making this tea is quite simple. You can use your choice of tea, with caffeine-free tea commonly recommended. Caffeine has been known to interfere with psilocybin trips.
Use these ingredients:
- 3.5 grams of mushrooms of your choice.
- 2 cups of water.
- 2-3 decaffeinated and/or herbal tea bags.
- Honey, herbs and other tea additives.
To make the tea, you’ll also need the following equipment:
- Clean grinder.
- Coffee filter or sieve.
- Saucepan, kettle or pot.
- Teapot (optional).
The serving size for shroom tea will depend on your desired potency and quantity of tea you’d like to consume. The recipe below calls for an eighth of shrooms and 2 cups of water. Make 3 cups if you’d like a lower dose per cup.
Making this tea should not take more than 20 minutes. The longest time frame for the steeping should be between 10-15 minutes total.
How To Make A Shroom Tea
Follow this easy step-by-step guide to make your delicious shroom tea.
Step 1. Prepare And Grind Shrooms
Properly grinding up your shrooms will ensure that your infusion is as potent as possible.
Step 2. Boil Water
Next, put your shrooms aside and boil the desired amount of water. You can either boil water in a saucepan or pot, or you could boil it in a kettle and pour it in.
Step 3. Add Shrooms And Tea Bags
If you happen to be short on equipment, you can add the shrooms and tea bags to your saucepan and steep for 10-15 minutes this way. You could also add the tea bags and shrooms to a larger bowl and pour the water over them.
Step 4. Strain Tea
After about 15 minutes of steeping, use coffee filters or a sieve to strain your tea mixture into a teapot to ensure no shroom pieces are left in the tea.
Step 5. Add Garnishes
Now is the best time to add ginger, honey or any other additives you’d wish to enjoy.
Step 6. Store The Tea
If you do not wish to drink the tea all at once, you can store it in a glass container in the refrigerator in order to preserve the compounds. Make sure to drink the remaining tea within a week or two for the desired results.
How Long To Steep Shroom Tea
It is vital to steep the shroom tea for enough time to get a sufficient dose of psilocybin. It is recommended to steep it for at least 10 minutes to get the best results possible.

Some individuals prefer to drink shroom tea instead of eating whole shrooms or chocolates because they can better control the experience as a whole. Shroom tea does not feature the allergens and sugars that food products sometimes contain.
As a liquid, shroom tea has a faster onset than when eating shrooms. For individuals who do not wish to trip for hours at a time, this tea tends to metabolize a lot quicker than mushroom-infused foods. Let’s look at some of the biggest benefits associated with shroom tea below.

One gram of shrooms is typically enough to elicit tamer effects without any intense visualizations. Colors will appear brighter and you will be more open to engaging with the world surrounding you. Tea undoubtedly gives the user a wider spectrum of dosing options.
One downside of eating raw mushrooms is it usually results in a stomachache. Magic mushrooms can certainly do a number on our digestive systems.

Not everyone can safely consume chocolate or sugary, gelatin-based gummies, which makes tea the perfect alternative.

The effects of the tea depend entirely on the potency of the tea and type of shrooms used. Drinking this tea will result in the same effects associated with eating shrooms.
Help With Mental Illnesses
Recent studies indicated that shrooms can be used to treat symptoms of depression or kick addictions, such as alcoholism.
Shrooms have more value than just as potential treatments. Some users drink tea simply for the visual stimulation purposes.
Only psychedelics can help individuals feel good and tap into certain parts of their minds. Shrooms can help us tap into the meaning of life, ego and things that make us laugh.
Potential As A Cancer Treatment
Research continues to suggest that shrooms’ ability to curb both anxiety and depression can potentially help cancer patients, as well. Mental state can have a big impact on internal health, and, by extension, shrooms can help individuals better fight any diagnoses.

*Please note in 47 out of 50 states, psychedelic mushrooms are perfectly legal. Users can buy, sell and own psilocybin mushroom spores for research purposes only. However, it is illegal in nearly all jurisdictions to cultivate magic mushrooms. Psilocybin spores are never to be cultivated.
The only exception is in New Mexico, where it remains legal to grow mushrooms as long as no steps are taken to preserve the mushrooms. Make sure to familiarize yourself with your local psychedelic spore laws before placing an order. Psilocybin mushroom spores are currently illegal in California, Georgia and Idaho.
