    Heat water to 50 ° С and pour dried chaga on it. Leave the tank for a day. During this time the mushroom will be filled with liquid and will begin to give its useful properties to water. Then, gently chop the softened chaga and lower it into the water warmed to the initial temperature. In it, the fungus should be infused for at least 2 days.During this time, the water will absorb all the useful elements that are contained in the chag. Subsequently, the infusion should be stored in a cool place. If you leave it warm, the chaga will begin to ferment, and the drink will lose its former properties.
