Refreshingly Relaxing FoodTastic Tea
Health Highlights


1 mushroom(s) Shiitake mushroom, dried
1 cup Water
1 pinch Sea Salt (I use Eden French Celtic Sea Salt. Please use a high quality sea salt.)


This tea is super relaxing since shiitake mushrooms help remove excess salt from the body which helps balance & relax the body.  


Traditional Preparation Method

1.  Soak the dried mushroom in 1 cup of water for about 20 minutes.

2. When the mushroom is soft (or mostly soft), take it out of the soaking water (save the water), remove the stem & discard.

3. Slice the mushroom cap or chop finely. 

4. Place the soaking water & mushroom cap pieces into a sauce pan, bring to a boil.

5. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

6. Add a pinch of sea salt towards the end.


On the Go Preparation Method (or the easy-peasy method)

1.  You need to have an insulated stainless steel thermos for hot drinks.

2.  Boil the hot water.

3. Place the dried mushroom & the pinch of sea salt in the thermos, pour in the hot water and twist on the cover.

4. Let is sit for 1-3 hours & drink the liquid.
