Whether you are a chaga mushroom fanatic or a new comer to the medicinal mushroom world, we've got the chaga mushroom you need. As you know, Birch Moon Wellness Co has many functional herbal teas as well as our popular chaga mushroom tea.
When buying chaga tea bags online you often have a few choices. You can either buy individual chaga tea bags or chaga in a "loose leaf" format or in chunks.
All types have their advantages and disadvantages which is why we offer our customers different options. All of our teas both individual chaga tea bags and the loose ppwder chaga bags are wild-harvested in the pure and untouched forests of Siberia. We work with local farms who's family have been in the region for centuries. They've been mushroom foraging for many years and know the forest. They use safe harvesting practices that allow the chaga on birch trees to regenerate and collect the chaga pieces without damaging the tree.
Individual Chaga Tea Bags
Chaga mushroom (also known as inonotus obliquus) is packed with benefits including it's a famous high antioxidant potency. It's a nutrient-dense superfood rich in nutrients and minerals and a anti-inflammatory adaptogen.
To extract these powerful benefits one must use hot water extraction which is why our customers love to drink it as tea. Some even like to add other natural ingredients to their chaga tea such as honey, cinnamon, lemon, ginger or even maple syrup. You can even check our blog for other chaga tea recipes ideas.
Having individual chaga tea bags makes drinking chaga very convenient. Whether you are at home or at the office our Cha-Cha Chaga Mushroom boxes contain 20 individual sachets that are fully compostable. Our teas bags are made without any microplastics and have no metal staples.
Birch Moon Wellness also offers a Cinnamon + Chaga Mushroom option if you are looking for a hint of cinnamon. It's all about convenience when it comes to our individual chaga tea bags.
We recommend a steeping time between 10-15 minutes to get the full benefits of chaga. Some may prefer to steep longer or to brew their water with the chaga tea bags.
Chaga Tea Powder Bags
If you are looking to make drinking chaga part of your day to day buying chaga online in a "loose leaf" format can often times offer better value. Our Cha-Cha Chaga Loose Tea Powder bags have 200 grams of wild-harvested Siberian chaga which is good for just over 100 cups of tea.
Buying chaga powder bags also allows you to brew small or large portions for you and your loves ones. When making single cups we recommend placing your loose chaga powder in a fine strainer and steeping for 10-15 minutes.
If you are using a stove top kettle, for best results, we recommend placing your loose powder chaga in a strainer and placing it in your tea kettle as your water boils. If you liking a stronger chaga tea we recommend brewing tea bag for 15-20 minutes then serving your tea making sure to remove the tea bags. This will give you a stronger chaga tea and maximizes the extraction of the goodness it contains.
Another advantage with having loose chaga mushroom powder is the recipes one may choose to do. Our blog has many chaga tea recipes including the chaga kombucha recipe as well as our iced chaga tea recipes like our watermelon and mint iced chaga recipe which makes for an amazing summer drink.

If you are looking for convenience we highly recommend the individual tea bags. These small sachets are fully compostable. If you are looking to try out a few recipes, if you are prefer a stronger tasting chaga tea or if you are making a larger portion for friends and family then option for the 200 gram loose powder chaga bag is more convenient and provides better value.
