If you have eaten magic mushrooms before, you know that they can hardly be described as delicious. While some people don’t mind there, to put it mildly, unique flavor, others are repelled by it or can even suffer a gag reflex, especially when eating larger quantities.
Due to this, crafty psychonauts have found many ways to consume magic mushrooms that can mitigate their earthy, sometimes moldy taste. Among the simplest and most popular methods is to brew a magic mushroom tea.
This simple ‘hack’ does not just solve the taste issue, but adds several distinct advantages to consuming magic mushrooms:
Many users who try consuming magic mushrooms by brewing them never switch back to eating them raw; it’s quick, easy, customizable, and useful. So, without further ado, let’s get into ways to make magic mushroom tea.
The basic recipe for making a shroom tea involves only steeping the mushrooms (fresh or dried) in hot water:
Most of the psilocybin from the mushrooms will be infused into the water, but if you want to maximize your trip, you can either repeat the steeping process and have another cup of tea or simply eat the solid remainder, which will not have such a strong flavor like before the brewing.
Because you’ll be ingesting liquid instead of solid matter, your stomach will not need to dissolve it and the psilocybin will enter your bloodstream quicker. If taking magic mushrooms in tea form, the trip usually comes on in about 30 to 45 min. It also passes quicker than when eating raw mushrooms.
An alternative is not to drink the tea all at once but to casually sip on it throughout the tripping session. This way, the onset will be more gradual, and the trip duration will increase.
There are three main things you can do to make your magic mushroom tea perform even better. They are:
There are many other possibilities for customizing your magic mushroom tea experience. Any flavors, herbs, and spices you like can be added to achieve your preferred taste.
Instead of mushrooms, magic truffles can also be brewed in exactly the same way, but a higher quantity must be used.

Unlike dried mushrooms, which can basically be kept forever in a dry and cool place, magic mushroom tea can only stay potent for a few days if kept in the fridge. Freezing may help extend this time frame, but not indefinitely.
If using dried mushrooms, 1.5-2.5g is generally considered a modest to moderate dose, perfect for beginners and those wanting a more gentle trip. Infusing 2.5-4.5g will yield a moderate to a strong trip, only advised to experienced psychonauts. Brewing more than 5g will amount to a ‘heroic dose,’ only recommended for experts.
If using fresh mushrooms, multiply the recommended doses by ten.
If using truffles, depending on their indicated potency, you should use three to five times more than you would dry mushrooms.
