A Threshold-Mild Dose
by Jay
Citation:   Jay. "A Threshold-Mild Dose: An Experience with Mushrooms (exp104131)". Erowid.org. Aug 15, 2019. erowid.org/exp/104131

.75 g oral Mushrooms (tea)
      Tea (liquid)
I've been using the following recipe for the last few years with good results. It allows me to have a threshold-mild dose with minimum stomach upset and slightly longer onset/duration (lower peak, however). When I want to go on an adventure, I'll double the amount of shrooms:

1-bag of jasmine green tea (light caffeine and easy on stomach)
.75g of dried, ground psilocybin mushrooms (finely ground in coffee grinder)
1tsp sweetener
1oz milk/creamer

Preparation: Place tea into cup, add nearly boiling (160-180F). Allow to steep for 2-3 minutes. Remove tea bag and sweetener. Stir until completely mixed.

Add the dried shooms and stir. They don't dissolve but they will take up a bit of the water from the cup and leach a bit of their psychoactive compounds into the liquid.

Wait until the liquid has gotten just above room temperature (5-10 minutes), add a bit of creamer, drink and enjoy.

As a final note: I drink the mushy vegetation at the bottom of the cup as it seems that after about 5-10 minutes that the liquid has cooled, only 40-50% of the psilocybin is in the liquid; the rest is still in the vegetation.
