Magic Mushroom Tea. The flavor of psilocybin mushrooms differs from that of ordinary mushrooms. They have a thick, meaty, occasionally sunflower-seedy, dirt-tinged flavor. To put it another way, they taste like shit. So I’ve heard. While some people can tolerate eating raw mushrooms, most psychonauts prefer to prepare their fungi in advance to make it go down smoother.

Making a tea is one of the simplest ways to prepare mushrooms for eating. There are a few options, and you’re likely to have everything you need in your kitchen to brew these teas.


Mushroom tea is an infusion of mushrooms in water, made by using edible/medicinal mushrooms (such as lingzhi mushroom) or psychedelic mushrooms (such as Psilocybe cubensis). Medicinal mushrooms are used for a variety of reasons, including stress and anxiety relief, anti-cancer properties, and lots of vitamins and antioxidants. These teas are also sometimes used as a caffeine replacement

How to make magic mushroom tea

Running hot water through your mushrooms is the first step in making psilocybin-infused tea. Psilocybin is a water-soluble substance, which means it dissolves in liquid. You may either brew the mushrooms in hot water and then filter the extraction to remove any shroomy bits, or you can leave the mushrooms in the water and eat what’s left as you get to the bottom of the cup. It also helps to grind the mushrooms beforehand.

Using hot water to extract psilocybin from mushrooms is the quickest method. Although you can use boiling water, it’s usually best to let the liquid cool for a minute or two before starting the extraction. Although some mushroom users may be concerned that heat may destroy the psilocybin, this is quite improbable. While psilocybin is relatively fragile once extracted with water, the good stuff will never be burned up by water.
