Where Does Chaga Come From
Chaga grows on birch trees in colder climates and requires proper harvesting to prevent damaging the tree. You may have seen it while out walking. It looks like a large, bumpy node projecting out from the trunk of the birch tree. If you didn’t know it was a mushroom, you might think the tree is sick. Really, that node is a powerful healing mushroom!
A company in the northern woods of Maine ships chaga chunks directly to you. They’re perfect for this chaga chai pumpkin pie recipe – or anything else you want to make with chaga. Maybe serve a cup a chaga chai tea with this amazing dessert?
