To create our double extracted tinctures we combine powdered dried fruit bodies with oak aged brandy, 5 parts liquid to 1 part mushroom. The alcohol soluble compounds are extracted into the liquid over a period of six weeks. Afterwards we separate the material and combine the mushroom with reverse osmosis water and brought to a low simmer for six hours, Tahitian vanilla bean is added for flavor and increased benefits. We then remove the remaining powdered mushroom from the tea and combine both liquid extractions, 60% water 40% alcohol for shelf stability. This dual extraction process ensures high concentrations of both beta glucans and triterpenes which are then rendered bioavailable.
We grow our mushrooms on untreated, organically supplemented, hardwood.
Our final product is cultivated and crafted with love to be the highest quality and potency available.
