Shitake tea can help dissolve animal-quality fat and relax a contracted or tense condition, usually as a result of liver imbalance.
Soak one shitake in one cup of water for a half hour.
When shitake is soft, chop it very fine.
Put shitake and water in a pot and bring to boil. Reduce flame, and simmer for fifteen minutes.
Add a few drops of shoyu or tamari during the last few minutes of cooking.
