What Is Kratom Tea?
Kratom tea is simply kratom powder steeped or dissolved in hot water. Traditional preparation in Southeast Asia includes brewing the leaves from the kratom tree but if you can't find dried kratom leaves, the powder is equally effective. Visiting My Kratom Club would be a great help in this regard.
How to Make Kratom Tea?
Before you make kratom tea, you should know that kratom is bitter, and the longer you steep it, the more bitter it becomes.
Don't add it in boiling water, but let the water boil gently and simmer it down. Then, add the kratom powder and heat everything again to simmer for 20 minutes on low heat.
Step 1: What You'll Need
For this kratom tea recipe, you'll need the following tools:
- A medium or large pot (or teapot)
- Kratom powder in your desired strain
- Cheesecloth or a mesh strainer
Note: You can reuse the kratom powder to make a second batch of tea.
Step 2: Ingredients
The amount of kratom powder you use depends on the effect you want to achieve. For example, if you've never tried kratom tea before, use only 1-3 grams of powder. For a gentle stimulating effect, around 4 grams is recommended, and for moderate sedative effect, 5 grams is the upper limit of kratom.
To prepare kratom tea, you'll need:
- 4-6 cups of water
- The recommended dosage of kratom powder
- Lemon juice (add to kratom powder before brewing)
- Sweetener of choice (honey, sugar, agave, stevia, maple syrup)
- Add-ons, optional (spices, other tea for flavor, fruit juice)
Most kratom beginners don't know how to buy kratom from reliable and legal sources, so doing proper research is crucial for getting high-quality kratom powder.
Step 3: Preparation
The best way to make kratom tea is by boiling kratom powder in water, but you can also prepare the tea from kratom leaves.
To start, pour the water into a pan or a kettle and let it boil slightly. Reduce the heat and add the kratom powder. Let everything simmer for 20 minutes and let it cool slightly before consumption. Pour the tea through a mesh cloth into a cup and stir to dissolve any clumps. You can use the powder for another batch of tea.
If you want to use lemon juice, make sure to add it to the powder beforehand so that the acid from the lemon activates the alkaloids from the kratom.
