Turkey Tail Fungus

Turkey Tail fungus Trametes versicolor

One of the most common mushrooms in North American woods, found virtually anywhere there are dead hardwood logs and stumps to decompose—and, occasionally, on conifer wood too. Its cap colours are extremely variable, but tend to stay in the buff, brown, cinnamon, and reddish brown range. The mushrooms are strikingly “zonate” with sharply contrasting concentric zones of colour, and the surface of the cap is finely fuzzy or velvety.
Turkey Tail tea is purported to be healing and to enhance the immune system.  Add some to your regular tea and let steep along with it.
