Kratom tea is a traditional tea from Thailand, which provides both energizing and relaxing effects, depending on the strain you use. Making this tea is easy, provided you are in a country where the leaves and powder are legal, such as in the United States, where it is widely available in numerous forms. Here’s how you can brew the tea at home.
Add 3 cups of water to a teapot and put it on the gas.
Add juice from half a lemon to the water. In addition to a citrusy flavor, lemon juice protects the alkaloids of the kratom during the heating process.
Heat the water to a simmer, then pour in 1-2 grams of kratom powder. The amount of kratom you add will have a significant difference in the potency and impact of this tea. It is recommended to start with a small amount (e.g., 1-2 grams) of kratom powder. You can carefully increase the dose from there if desired.
Stir occasionally, allowing the mixture to continue simmering for 15 minutes. Do not boil.
Remove from heat and let it brew for 2 minutes.
Slowly strain the tea through cheesecloth or a fine strainer into a pot.
Serve at room tempreature or with ice cubes and enjoy!
Kratom strains are naturally bitter. Brewing the tea for more than two minutes will further result in a bitter flavor. Make sure to choose your strain and brew time as per your taste.
If you find the tea to be too strong, you may choose to add sugar, stevia, or honey for a sweet taste or dilute it with some more water.
Do not use kratom extracts as its constituents are easily broken down and lost in hot water. Additionally, it is too heavy on the pocket too!
