There are 2 ways to enjoy Happy Tea, hot and cold. Below are some general guides you can use to get the most out of your Happy Tea.
You can drink Happy Tea on your own or with friends.
What you’ll need:
Your dose (if desired)
Your Happy Tea bag/s
Large cup or teapot
Your best buds (if sharing)
Step one: Prepare your tea bag with the right dose
If you're preparing for yourself, you'll need one tea bag + your dose (1-2g).
If you're sharing, one tea bag can make enough water to share with up to 4 people. You shouldn't put more than 4g in one tea bag. If you're sharing with more than 4 people, you'll need multiple tea bags, either in multiple pots or each person can have their own tea bag in their own cup.
You want 1-2g per person in the tea bag. Refer to our How to Find Your Happy Dose Guide for more details.
Once you have your dose, crush the truffle into bits and insert the bits into the Happy Tea bag.
You can also empty the tea bag and add all items into a tea strainer for stronger effects.
Step two: Prepare the hot water
One tea bag is good for up to 1 litre of water. More if you're making cold brew.
Place your filled Happy Tea bag into your desired tea pot or cup and pour hot water.
For cold brews, empty the tea bag all items into a large pot with hot water and let steep for at least 2 hours.
Step three: Re-steep
Each tea bag can be re-steeped 3-4 times. If you're drinking it out of a cup, you can re-steep the same tea bag with hot water enough for 3-4 cups.
For cold brews, once the tea has been steeped for at least 2 hours, you can filter out the tea and pour the water into a jug. Add more room temperature water to dilute it so it's not so bitter.
(If you started with 500ml of hot water, you can add another ~250ml of room temperature water to give 750ml total. It's up to your taste preferences! You can also add some honey to sweeten it).
Enjoy until you feel something!
Dispose of the tea bag when finished. If there is still leftover water, you can refrigerate it for another day.
Some extra notes
> The effects are the same with hot and cold brews. If you were to make the cold brew without hot water at the start, less psilocybin would be extracted. So make sure you are using hot water and allowing it to cool.
> Since you get more water out of the cold brew than hot tea, you may want to increase the dose if you're sharing it so the effect is stronger per person.
