Runner up in our “make reishi tea taste good” challenge, Kendra of Kendra Can Cook shares her Peppermint/Honey and Peach Reishi Tea recipes. Basic reishi tea is notoriously bitter and Kendra shows us a couple ways to make it less so.
Peppermint & Honey Reishi Mushroom Tea
makes one serving
Bring water to a boil on the stove. Add dried reishi mushroom slices and allow to steep for 15 – 30 minutes. After the mushrooms are fully saturated, add fresh mint, peppermint oil and honey and stir. Reheat if necessary.
● For another tasty variation, omit the mint & peppermint oil and instead slice & boil a fresh peach, mush it and add the peach juice (and a bit of the pulp) to reishi mushroom tea with a few tablespoons of honey. Delicious!
