The Easy Way To Make Magic Mushroom Tea

If you've ever wondered how you can make magic mushrooms taste better—look no further. This step-by-step guide explains how to make magic tea using dried or fresh magic mushrooms/truffles for the ultimate psychedelic brew.

Let’s face it; for all the spiritual understanding and inner reflection magic mushrooms or truffles provide, they don’t taste great. Sometimes the taste is tolerable, while other times it can be an incredibly bitter pill to swallow. Thankfully, the diversity of magic mushrooms knows no bounds, and with a small amount of preparation, they can be added to tea as a simple yet highly effective alternative to chewing through large doses.


The benefits of magic mushroom tea are twofold. Not only does the drink (usually infused with honey) remove some of the metallic taste when consumed, but magic mushroom tea can also help reduce nausea. When magic mushrooms are consumed, it is a fibrous substance called chitin that causes feelings of nausea and discomfort. With tea, we siphon off what we need and leave the chitin behind!


Magic Mushroom/Truffle Tea Recipe


  • Magic Mushrooms or truffles (dried or fresh)


  • Tea strainer
  • Grinder (or sharp knife)


  1. Using a standard dose, cut or grind your magic mushrooms into small pieces (the smaller, the better). Large chunks won’t provide as much psilocybin when we leave them to steep in step 3.

  2. Boil enough water to fill a large mug and leave it to sit for a couple of minutes. The water needs to be hot, but not boiling.

  3. Add the powdered magic mushrooms to your tea strainer and allow it to steep in the hot water for 10–15 minutes.

  4. Transfer your magic tea mixture to a mug and drink when ready—simple.

    You can repeat steps 1–3 if you want to harvest more psilocybin and make the most potent tea possible.


Magic Mushroom Tea: Things To Consider

It is crucially important that you don’t steep the magic mushrooms in boiling water. The heat will destroy the psilocybin, and you risk wasting a life-affirming experience! Always use temperatures below boiling.

The effects of magic mushroom tea, while quick to kick in, don’t last as long as when chewed whole. The exact timescale will differ from person to person depending on several aspects, including the size of the dose. Based on an average dose, you can expect magic mushroom tea to kick in after roughly 15–30 minutes and last a few hours rather than 6+.

During “Step 3”, you can add a regular tea bag to the mixture to make the flavour more pleasant. Alternatively, you can add a spoonful of honey, a few drops of lemon, or ginger for an exciting and flavourful twist. After all, the best way to start a psychedelic journey across the cosmos is to be as relaxed as possible.
