Shiitake are one of the East’s most exotic and delicious foods, with a subtle woody taste that adds gourmet flair to almost any dish. Our Organic Shiitake Mushrooms (sometimes spelt shitake) are carefully grown, selected and dried to offer the full depth of flavour and aroma that is highly prized in both Eastern and Western cuisine. The variety used is characterised by large, well-developed caps, which makes them easy to reconstitute and use in everyday cooking. The word Shiitake means (shii - oak tree, take - mushroom) that have a long history of use.
For a flavourful broth, boil a few shiitake and their soaking water with some kombu sea vegetable for 15 minutes, then season with shoyu or tamari and mirin to taste.

They are brilliant mushrooms, great ☀️👍🏻
Expensive but worth it. Have tried cheaper ones. No comparison. Use it mainly now for when I make sushi.
Maybe more expensive than other dried shiitake mushrooms in the market but these are good quality, organic and quite big. Real unami flavour & real food. Trust that they won't have chemicals/pesticides on them. So is worth spending a little more. Very nice & helpful staff too. Heard & read they got anti-oxidant properties and help fight cancer too. Love them
These are amazing. One mushroom leaves so much flavour in my stews. Genuine stuff and nasties free. Love it!
These shitake mushrooms are my favourite ingredient and so versatile. A little goes a long way too!
