Chaga Thunder Mushroom Tea
The StoryI was in the woods harvesting morel mushrooms almost 10 years ago. And I was a bit lost on my way back out, so I took a short cut and looked up before I almost ran into a birch tree. And there it was. Sheer beauty, a black crusted clump on a tree as if the birch tree had been stamped with Mother Earth's seal of approval. I had to find out what it was. I was excited and out of breath as I ran back to my car a 1/4 mile away.
I went home and identified it as Chaga Mushroom (Latin: Inonotus obliquus, Ojibwe: Skitagaan). I went back out to harvest it and that was the beginning of almost a decade of harvesting this wonderful medicine. Oh the adventures we could share.
Chaga Mushroom is a wild mushroom hot tea drink harvested sustainable from wild white Birch tree in pure Midwest and Ontario Forests by or under the direction Herbal Lodge Owner Nathan Wright a certified mushroom expert.
Our name of Chaga Thunder came from several birch trees stuck by lighten. As a Native American I have great respect and reverence for such things. I had to leave it, and let it continue to grow. I am sure it stays where I left it hidden in the woods. Awaiting the next bolt of life force. I found this to be the center of the area we harvest from. We go there often and make offerings for our harvests.
May I share our blessings and invite you to enjoy a wonderful cup?

What You Should Know About Chaga Thunder Mushroom Tea
Sourced from the heart of nature, our Chaga Thunder Mushroom Tea honors the essence of pure, wild-harvested chaga mushrooms.
Traditionally used by Native American tribes like the Ojibwe for a myriad of wellness benefits, Chaga mushroom tea has a long history of versatile medical use. With potential benefits ranging from enhanced vitality and disease prevention to immune support and digestion relief, chaga mushroom tea is an effective alternative for an array of holistic wellness needs!
Typically found on birch trees in colder climates, this slow-growing and nutrient-rich mushroom takes on the appearance of a clump of burnt charcoal. Harvested by hand at the peak of the season, we carefully remove sections of the mushroom without damaging the trees or overharvesting Chaga. By replicating these time-tested Native American harvesting practices, we preserve the integrity of this rare species while simultaneously offering our customers the purest mushrooms that nature has to offer.
Despite its odd appearance, this healthful mushroom offers a smooth and delightful tea-sipping experience. Its mildly earthy and bitter tones are balanced by the naturally-occurring vanillin (the same as a vanilla bean) found in Chaga, making this a wonderful daily tea that’s equally great for you!
