Anybody Know a Mushroom Tea Recipe

I always use a peppermint tea bag and add a little chopped ginger to the mix as I get really bad problems with stomach cramps.

I've read that overboiling may destroy, but also that the steep may not extract enough. A double extraction will be done with either method....
And finally, should there be a 20min line juice soak before either, or are vitamin C crystals in the steep/boil enough for the same purpose?

I don't know about the Vit C tablets. The lime juice is known to work. If you have luck with tablets, do a write up on it, but I'll stick to the juice. I feel like what makes this method work is the steeping of the mushrooms in concentrated lime juice before tea making.
Also, when I make tea I don't use boiling water, just nice and steaming hot.
So what I'm getting out of this is:
1. Powder or crush mushrooms. Soak in lime juice 20 min.
2. Add to gently boiling water & let boil roll on low until they go more brown.
3. Strain. Place mushrooms in a second volume of boiling water for 15 min.
4. Strain 2nd volume, combine volumes. Flavor & drink.
Without the lime juice I'd been adding a teaspoon of vitamin C crystals; I presume they do the same thing? I also have a digentive tablet containing papaya 30 min before + just before the tea to aid the stomach.
Any other ways this can be improved? I don't mind the extra prep time.

Any advocates of double extraction out there?

I've never messed with additives other than tea bags and honey or sugar for flavor. And on one occasion, hot coccoa powder mix. Not sure I'll do that again.

Even faster is if you mix shroom powder with some honey (about 1 gram per level Tbs.) and just eat it or make a peanut butter ant honey sandwich. The body absorbs honey super fast and it brings along whatever goodies are mixed in it. You can also add the honey to tea but I like the taste of it by itself. It defenitely removes he athletes foot taste.
Tea will definitly kick in faster.. faster you absorb it :D
