How To Make Kratom Tea

One popular way of consuming Kratom is Kratom tea. But most people might not be aware of how to make Kratom tea. Some people find it more pleasant to consume Kratom in the form of tea rather than taking Kratom in the form of capsules. 

In this detailed blog, I will talk about different methods to make Kratom tea, Kratom tea recipes, how to make Kratom tea from powder, and how to make Kratom extract. In addition, the potential benefits and risks of Kratom Tea are also part of our discussion. 

But before this, I will give you a brief introduction to exactly what Kratom is. 

What is Kratom? 

Indigenous to South Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea, Kratom is an evergreen tree used in coffee and other medical products. People from the Southeast have been utilising Kratom for various purposes since the 19th century.

Kratom, biologically known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is made up of various chemical compounds like mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine, which can affect the body in many ways.  

Due to its soothing effects on our brains, people now also use Kratom to brew tea, commonly known as Kratom Tea.

Kratom Tea Recipes: Tips For Making Kratom Tea

Here is Kratom Tea Recipes: 

  1. Kratom Powder

Kratom Tea From Powder

1. Kratom Powder

The first step in making Kratom tea is to measure the amount of Kratom you require for the tea. Generally, 2 to 4 grams is suitable for beginners. However, the specific amount depends on individual tolerance levels. 

2. Hot Water

Many people use boiling water to make Kratom tea which is not generally recommended. The compound alkaloid in Kratom has beneficial health effects and is stable at high temperatures, but not in boiling water. 

Heat water before reaching its boiling temperature. Now pour the water into the cup and then add Kratom powder. (R)

Note: Many people put Kratom powder in cool water and then put it on heat which is also not a recommended method. 

3. Add Some Acid

The alkaloid in Kratom contains nitrogen, which can decompose if kept at high temperatures for a longer period, thereby reducing the effectiveness of Kratom.

Adding acid like lemon juice or apple cider vinegar can help in slowing down the reaction that degenerates the compounds. 

4. Add Something Sweet For the Taste

Kratom tea tastes very bitter if used without adding some sweet content. To make the taste better, adding some sweetness can be a good idea. You can also add other substances like ginger, citrus zest, or cinnamon for other flavours.
