Magic in a Mug: Delicious Recipes for Magic Mushroom Tea

Truffles or magic mushrooms can undoubtedly create an incredibly psychedelic experience. However, their taste may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Some people describe the taste as earthy and metallic, similar to eating a spoonful of dirt, whereas others may compare it to eating tree bark. Their chewy consistency also doesn’t help things.

The taste of shrooms falls somewhere between “oh no” and “absolutely no,” so the best way to avoid starting your shroom experience on a gross note is to mask the taste. Tea makes it easy to add honey or whatever sweetener you choose.

But it’s not just about avoiding the taste. There’s another reason why many seasoned psychonauts have turned to tea: it reduces nausea. Tea quickly extracts what you want and discards the rest.

Here are some of our favorite magic mushroom tea recipes, which work equally well with truffles and mushrooms.

Benefits of magic mushroom tea

  • No stomachaches: Eating raw mushrooms can cause side effects such as cramped tummy. After all, the psychedelic effects of mushrooms are caused by poison present in fungi, and that can do a number on the digestive system.
  • Quicker onset: Shrooms affect people differently, even if they take the same amount simultaneously. When shrooms are consumed as tea, they are absorbed more quickly by the intestines, leading to the effects kicking in faster, often cutting the onset time in half.
  • More dosing control: Shrooms’ effects with lighter visuals can usually be achieved with just 1 gram for better control of the dose. Colours appear brighter, things seem more amusing, and it feels nice to interact with the world. If you prefer a highly concentrated dose or want to sip shroom tea throughout the day, using tea provides more dosing options.
  • Discretion: It’s important to consider being discreet when using shrooms. Your surroundings can greatly affect your shroom experience, and being in nature can lead to deep personal insights. However, taking shrooms outside your home can be risky, depending on where you are. For example, making mushroom tea in a pot or thermos before going to the park can help ensure that you don’t have any incriminating evidence on you. This way, you can enjoy your shroom tea at the park without worries. Just remember to keep it warm!
  • Suits dietary restrictions: Many mushroom sellers use chocolate bars or gummies to make them more familiar and suit the customer’s taste. This also gives discreet packaging and dosing instructions. However, not everyone can consume chocolate or sugary, gelatin-based gummies.
Important note: Psilocybin breaks down at high temperatures, which can make mushrooms less potent. If you’re cooking with mushrooms in your kitchen, only add them once your food has cooled down. This way, you can fully experience the potency of your mushrooms.

How to Make Shroom Tea

Honey Tea

This is the most basic and our all-time favorite mushroom tea out there; with a little bit of honey, everything seems sweeter.


  1. Chop the dose of truffles or mushrooms into tiny bits. The smaller they are, the more surface area they have to release all that psilocybin goodness into your tea.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and let it cool a bit. It should be hot but not boiling.
  3. Place truffles in the tea infuser and pour over the hot water.
  4. Let it all steep for about 10 to 15 minutes, giving it a stir now and then.
  5. Starin ou the tea into another cup.
  6. Add a dollop of honey to sweeten the tea, and enjoy your magic brew.

If you want to squeeze out every last drop of magic from shrooms, you can repeat the process with the leftover shrooms from the first cup. That way, you’ll have a high-concentrated cup of tea that will take you on a wild ride.

Lemon Tea

Made with fresh lemon juice, this variation brings an extra zest to the experience. The acidity natre of fresh lemon juice turns psilocybin into psilocin, making it hit faster and more intensely, though the trip may not last as long as usual. Essentially, adding lemon juice takes some work from the stomach, making it easier on your system.


  1. Slice up your mushrooms into small bits to maximize their surface area.
  2. Put mushrooms into a cup and squeeze in some fresh lemon juice.
  3. Let the mushrooms sit in lemon juice for about 10 minutes; stir it occasionally.
  4. While that is soaking, get some water boiling.
  5. Pour that hot water (not boiling) over lemon texture
  6. Let everything steep together for a solid 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to blend those flavors.


Ginger Twist Tea

This recipe is a little spicier and can add a whole lot of flavours to the experience, making for a tasty treat. The taste of licorice and mushrooms goes well together, and as everyone knows, licorice has many benefits. You can cut them or use dried licorice or a tea bag containing some.


  1. Start chopping the truffles into small pieces to maximize their surface area.
  2. Pop those truffles into a cup along with some cut and dried licorice or tea bag.
  3. Boil the water.
  4. Now add a pinch of ginger and a splash of fresh orange juice. The combo helps settle your stomach and adds a hint of acidity.
  5. Let everything steep together for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring it occasionally.
  6. Enjoy the tea!
