Turkey Tail Mushroom Tea


Anyone here drink Turkey tail mushroom tea (Trametes Versicolor)? Last Autumn I came upon a treasure trove of these mushroom in a pine forest. Usually in spring I have hay fever because of my aggressive immune system. But since drinking that tea it seems it has lower my immune aggressiveness and I no longer have hay fever.
The amazing thing is it balances your immune system. If your immune system is too weak it increases it so you are now no longer prone to infection. if you immune system is too aggressive it lowers it and you are less prone to allergies (and cancer too supposedly). Amazing mushroom.

Had no idea that those were for tea. When I was a kid I collected buckets of those and sold them- was $25 for a 5 gallon bucket of good quality which took 2-3 hours to collect normally which was great money and getting paid to explore the woods. Looking at prices for 8oz of this stuff now it seems prices have more than matched inflation.

Nowadays they are turning them into a powder as well and taken as pills. But it's inedible in its natural state (although it can be chewed and the indigestible parts spat out) so you have to drink it as a tea. Everyone should be drinking this. Some people may have a negative reaction to it though as all things.
The price has rocketed after it was medically proven to have anti-cancer properties. I know where to find them. There are a few look-alike (most not poisonous and may actually have medical benefits as well) but overall it is easy to identify.
