How to Make Magic Mushroom Tea

Spread the love

Not everyone likes to consume magic mushrooms raw – some don’t like the taste, while others find the indigestible chitin to be unappetizing. So, what’s the solution for modern, experienced psychonauts who want to get the most out of their magic mushrooms?

Tea, of course!

Infusing mushrooms in tea not only makes consuming them much easier, but also more flavorful as you can add just about any of your favorite flavorings.

In fact, making magic mushroom tea is basically quite a simple process, but one which you can convert into a personal healing ritual quite easily.

Let’s find out!

Tea vs. Raw Mushrooms: Why is tea better?

Before we take a look at the recipe, it’s important to know if there really is any difference between consuming raw mushrooms and infusing them in tea, and if yes, what it is.

Well, for starters, the very fact that you’re reading this indicates that as a psychonaut (experience level doesn’t matter here) you are interested in making mushroom tea. The same is true for a majority of fellow magic mushroom enthusiasts around the world.

This is because of two very important reasons:

1.   Tea tastes much better than raw mushrooms

2.   Tea is much easier on the stomach

Let’s look at the science behind why this is so.

When you consume raw mushrooms, you’re also ingesting a lot of indigestible raw mushroom material, such as chitin. Not only does it taste kind of bad, it also messes up your digestive system, and induces nausea and chances of vomiting for a lot of people.

So what happens when you make magic mushroom tea?

Basically, when you boil the mushrooms in water for around 10-15 minutes, chitin and the other indigestible components naturally break down, and psilocybin – the psychoactive compound in magic mushrooms – gets infused into the water.

The end result?

You’ve got yourself a homemade psilocybin extract that is not only delicious to consume, but incredibly easy to prepare as well!

Magic Mushroom Tea: More intense?

Apart from this, mushroom tea can also make your trip start quicker, last longer, and be more intense than you’re used to.

Why is this?

Well, when you’re preparing the mushrooms for your tea, you grind your mushrooms into a powder first. This increases the surface area of mushrooms your body is getting, and as a result your body absorbs it faster, and feels a much stronger reaction.

To put it simply, when you ingest a raw mushroom piece, you’re not really giving your digestive system a chance to react to the entire mushroom at once. This is why it takes a longer time in absorbing it, and it simply isn’t possible to absorb all of the psychoactive ingredients in there.

On the other hand, when you crush your mushrooms into a powder, and let the hot tea extract all the psilocybin in there, you can be guaranteed of a faster, more powerful trip.

So now that we’re done with all the science stuff, let’s take a look at how you can make magic mushroom tea at home!

Magic Mushroom Tea: The recipe

While there are a ton of methods and recipes out there, the best way to go about making magic mushroom tea is to keep it simple.

As we mentioned before, once you get the hang of it, you can customize it into your own personal ritual, but for now we will stick to our tried and tested base recipe, to help you get as good a result as possible.

Let’s get started.


These are all of the ingredients you will need to prepare your magic mushroom tea.

  1. Magic Mushrooms: You can’t have mushroom tea without mushrooms can you? You can find them in the wild (and run the risk of poisoning) or you can simply order them online. You won’t need much – 3.5g should do the trick!
  2. Water: You need something to boil those mushrooms in and while we’re all tempted to use liquor, it just won’t work. Plain old water it is.
  3. Ginger: Just to add a bit of bite to your tea – a pinch should be enough!
  4. Tea-bag (optional): If you want to add your favorite tea-bag for flavor, go right ahead!


Now that you have everything ready, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Measure out the required dose of your favorite mushrooms (3.5g usually does the trick)
  2. Crush your mushrooms into as fine a powder as possible. If you’re having difficulties, chopping them up into little pieces works just as well! Once done, toss them in a cup
  3. Chop up some of that ginger (only a pinch) and throw it in the cup with the mushrooms
  4. Boil a cup of water in a pot or a kettle
  5. Pour the hot water into the cup with the mushroom and ginger, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. This will get all the psilocybin nice and easy into the water.
  6. Strain out the mushroom bits if you don’t want them in your tea and nausea is your main concern.
  7. Enjoy sit back, relax, and enjoy the intense mushroom trip that’s about to kick in!

Mushroom Tea Effects

Now that you’re an expert in making mushroom tea, let’s see if it can actually change the effects of the mushrooms or not.

Apart from making the trip more intense and come on faster, you can actually alter your mushroom experience simply by adding in different flavors, herbs, spices, and even fruit to your tea.

You see, drinking plain tea alone can affect your mood and mental state. Lavender teas can be calming, while strong teas can be quite energizing and uplifting. After all, feelings and moods are all about perception.

So when we perceive those different flavors and fragrances in mushroom infused tea, it adds to the overall experience and makes us perceive and feel different emotions.

Pro tip: Try tangerine and peppermint for a refreshing herbal blend, or seasonal fruit for a season inspired trip – the options are limitless!
