It almost tatses like ground-up tree bark. Natural and earthy27/08/2018, By ShannonI've been boiling this in a pot with chai spices and chicory.

STill getting used to the taste but so far so good.23/09/2017, By Anna-MarieUsing the powder to make my own capsules. It is awesome,21/09/2017, By NitaI add chaga to my normal rooibos tea and it suprisingly didn't really taste like much and doesn't alter the rooibos taste. Adds a bit of an earthy taste and smell to it. Great product, I have been drinking two cups everyday and feel great! Would not recommend before bed time though, has a similar effect to coffee.14/06/2016, By DrinaI was amazed at the taste. Perfect for the cold with a little maple syrup added17/05/2016, By RobynThis is a very appealing, earthy tea. It is a total over-achiever in terms of its long list of health benefits from immune boosting, anti-oxidant, antiviral and antiseptc properties, but what really caught my attention is that it is anti-parasitic and is great for maintenance against these microscopic creepies that cause so much damage. My fiancé and I drink a cup before bed most nights.30/08/2015, By TracyI am a lover of teas and this powder makes a really delicious tea that not only tastes great but is super healthy too. I also add a little Chaga into my smoothies and dehydrated muesli, it still tastes great, and Im happy knowing that Im getting a superfood into my diet.27/07/2015, By ClarindaIve recently had to get off coffee for a cleanse, and go figure, between the Chaga and the Tulsi tea, I have absolutely no cravings for coffee anymore. Im absolutely addicted to Chaga, I can go one day without at least one cup, especially at bed time because it knocks me right out. But then, I add cinnamon and a bit of honey or coconut sugar and some milk, tastes almost like a cinnamon late, without the caffeine kick, and its so soothing.10/12/2014, By GregI have recently starting drinking a hot cup of this tea every night and am really surprised by how mid it tastes. Even our toddler has not complained about having it added to his nightly rooibos bottle. Chaga has incredible health properties and it is great to see my family drinking the tea daily.
