You didn't mention which type of 'shrooms you have, but I'll tell you what I did when I made the tea. First, I used the Psilocybe Cubensis, so I only used two small mushrooms (stalks and caps). I boiled water in a covered pot, turned down the heat to just barely a simmer, dropped in the two little guys, covered the pot and let it go for 5 mintues. Then I removed it from the heat, let it stand for 2 more mintues, covered, then strained into a mug, added a touch of honey, and drank. I didn't find the odor / taste too terribly offensive, although I did hold my nose.
Just a note about eating them whole - you may want to grind them up a bit before eating them. I read in my research that all mushrooms (even Portabellos and the like) are very hard to digest in the stomach, very similar to corn. When you eat them whole, the tummy's gotta do some extra work to take in the good stuff, so it's more of a time delay. So if you forego the tea, help your digestive system a bit and at least cut them into smaller pieces first. Maybe mix them in with ice cream or something that goes down easy and fast, so you don't get too much of the taste.
Keep us posted August! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you! Hopefully PFNAD very soon for you!!!!
