Hen of the Woods – Maitake – Hui Shu Hua

Maitake and the closely related Umbrella Polypore (Polyporus umbellatus) are delicious gourmet mushrooms, as well as highly regarded for their health benefits. Indeed, the name ‘Maitake’ means ‘Dancing Mushroom’ in Japanese, indicating people’s joy at finding it!

Most traditional sources do not mention Maitake and it appears that it was often not differentiated from Umbrella Polypore (also known as Grifola umbellata), of which it is said that ‘long term use makes one feel happy and vigorous and look younger’.
