Description: Turkey tail is a medicinal mushroom with an impressive range of benefits that have been in use since the early 15th century during the Ming Dynasty in China. The Japanese, who call it Kawaritake or “cloud mushrooms” due to its colouring appearing to look like swirling clouds, have been aware of the benefits of this super powerful mushroom for centuries with researchers now noting its health benefits in boosting the immune system. It is no surprise then that the cloud-like image symbolizes “longevity and health, spiritual attunement and infinity” to these Asian cultures.
