Whether it’s the first time you’re going to buy Kratom, or you just want to do something different, making Kratom tea is a great way to have fun with the plant. It’s quick, easy, and doesn’t require much cooking expertise. Let’s talk about how to make Kratom tea.
If you’ve ever made regular tea or coffee, this guide will be pretty easy for you to follow.
What is Kratom Tea?
However, if you want to make tea, you should opt for Kratom powder. In most ways, Kratom tea is similar to regular tea. However, there are a few differences. For instance, with regular tea bags, you can only use them once.
In contrast, you can use the powder from the first batch to make tea again. That’s part of the reason why most enthusiasts like making Kratom tea; they can use the same product multiple times.
Can You Buy Kratom Tea?
If you want to make Kratom tea at home, you should buy powder of your preferred Kratom strains. While most newbies like to go for Maeng da or Bali Kratom, veterans prefer red vein Kratom strains as they’re richer in alkaloids.
Now that we’ve got this out of the way, let’s talk about the Kratom tea recipe.
How to Make Kratom Tea at Home?
Quite conveniently, there are different ways to make Kratom tea. You can either prepare it on the stove or let the kettle do the job.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for making Kratom tea:
- Kratom Powder: You can choose the amount of powder depending on how you usually like your tea. For a stronger blend, add more powder. Alternatively, you can also add Liquid Kratom to increase the blend’s intensity.
- Water: If you want to make stronger tea, use less water. As you increase the amount of water, the Kratom powder gets diluted.
- Lemon Juice: Lemon helps extract the alkaloids from the Kratom plant into the water. Although it’s not a necessity, lemon juice helps spice things up.
- Sweeteners: If you like, you can add a sweetener such as honey.
Once you start making Kratom tea, you can change the amounts of the ingredients until you calibrate the recipe according to your needs.
How to Make Kratom Tea on a Stove Top?
To make Kratom tea on a stovetop, follow the steps given below:
- Before you brew, put the powder in water. Let it soak for about 15 minutes.
- Heat the water but don’t boil it. Boiled water destroys alkaloids, making the tea bland.
- Now, add the Kratom powder to the water. Add a few drops of lemon juice.
- Simmer the water for up to 15 minutes, or until the tea turns a bright yellow color.
- Use a strainer to pour the tea into your cup. You can preserve the powder for making tea another time.
- Finally, add a sweetener if you like.
Making Kratom Tea in a Kettle
If you don’t want to stand beside a stove for 15 minutes, you can make Kratom tea in a kettle too. Add water, lemon, and Kratom powder to the kettle.
When the kettle starts whistling, the tea is ready. Again, you can preserve the strained powder for the next batch of tea.
While storing Kratom, make sure you put it in an airtight container. Otherwise, the powder will be contaminated before you can reuse it.
Tips for Making Kratom Tea
If you’ve recently started making Kratom tea and aren’t familiar with the nitty-gritty of the task, here are a few tips to ensure that your experience is not a disaster.
- If you let the powder steep for a longer time, it will have a better effect.
- You can keep Kratom tea in the fridge for four to five days. However, if you’ve put in add-ons like honey or lemon, the longevity may be affected.
- Kratom powder settles to the bottom of the container in the form of clumps. Stir the mixture to break up the clumps.
- If you’re not a huge fan of lemon juice, you can use apple cider vinegar for the same effect.
- Buy branded Kratom powder if you crave higher quality.
