Charlie picks out the best Chaga in North America so you have an option! Not unlike a sommelier, Chaga considers himself a Chagoisseur. All Chaga harvested is from small foragers who are trying to support their family and do good in this world. This is why we do NOT purchase from other continents who give you Chaga which is stripped of the outer husk, where a lot of antioxidants come from. Be smart and Chaga with Charlie.
