How do I store my Lingzhi?
Store the unopened Lingzhi in a cool, dry place. Only open the Lingzhi when you are ready to prepare it for consumption.
After preparing the Lingzhi for the first time, you can reboil it until the taste of the tea is absent (read: 'How to prepare Lingzhi'). In between preparations, you can store it in an airtight bag or container, in a refrigerator. The open Lingzhi can store in this condition for up to a week from when it is first opened.
How do I prepare my Lingzhi?
Lingzhi can be used in several ways. One of the simplest ways is to make a Lingzhi tea.
How to prepare Lingzhi tea:
Boil 500ml of water.
Remove the Lingzhi from its packaging and put directly into 500ml of water.
Bring water to boil for 10-15 minutes. Lower to a simmer for another 30 minutes.
Turn off heat and add honey or sugar to taste (optional) let it cool slightly before serving.
Store the boiled Lingzhi in airtight container or bag in a refrigerator for up to a week.
Subsquent preparations of the Lingzhi tea:
Add Lingzhi to 500ml of water and boil for 10-15 minutes.
Turn heat down and simmer for 10 minutes.
Let cool and add honey or sugar to taste (optional).
The Lingzhi can be boiled for 5 times, or until there is no more Lingzhi taste from the tea, before replacing with a fresh Lingzhi.
