BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Two Western New York locals are offering an alternative to tea and coffee by using mushrooms. Joshua Zimmerman and Kristen Brown of Life Itself have been taking chaga mushrooms from Vermont and turning them into cold brew.

According to Zimmerman, chaga has lots of health benefits. Those include: elevating pain, restoring equilibrium and reducing stress. This all natural drink is picked right from birch trees and brought back to Buffalo.
