This is Whole Dried Reishi, not powdered like most commonly found. Reishi is a polypore mushroom that usually grows on dead or dying hardwood trees and stumps in temperate regions of the world. It's also known as "Lingzhi" (soul/spirit) mushroom. Reishi is a potent fungus that has played an important role in the traditional healing systems of China for centuries. It is thought to contain hundreds of bioactive compounds that may help balance the immune system, and to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour, sleep-promoting, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-diabetic, anti-oxidative, anti-ageing and anti-ulcer qualities, ect.

The most common method of consuming dried reishi mushrooms is to make a tea. The tea can be prepared by simmering the mushroom in water for about three hours. Reishi can also be added to soups, which should be simmered for two to three hours as well.
In prepared dishes, they are most commonly used sparingly, as an accent, due to the strong, earthy flavour.
