When you think about Siberia you imagine cold winters, harsh winds, and freezing temperatures. Any organism that survives in those conditions is usually hearty and resilient.

For the last several hundred years, Chaga has been used for brewing tea in this area. People have noticed that tea made from these fungi provided many health-supportive chaga tea benefits.

The harsh weather conditions in Siberia create one of the toughest regions in the world for mushrooms, plants, and trees to grow. Thus Chaga mushroom powder harvested in this area has the most concentration of valuable components and offers the best health benefits compared to all other Chaga mushrooms around the world.
