Birch Polypore Tea Bags

Birch Polypore Tea Bags


Birch polypore has been used for thousands of years and became famous when it was found along with the body of ‘Ötzi’, a 5300 year old mummy discovered by tourists between the border of Austria and Italy. It’s believed that Ötzi – who was suffering from Lyme disease – might have used the mushrooms to help clear parasitic worms from the stomach and the digestive system.


Medicinal claims** for birch polypore include:

  • immune boosting;
  • anti-parasitic;
  • anti-septic;
  • anti-viral; and
  • anti-inflammatory


Young specimens are more edible than more mature specimens; even then, we strongly recommend that you use birch polypore to make tea.
