How To Make Kratom Tea?
Step : 1
For this guide, I will be using 50 grams of crushed Kratom leaves per 1 liter.
Depending on your tolerance to the taste/effects you can add more or less per liter. If you want a stronger brew, I would recommend one of the fine (possibly enhanced) kratom powders.
Take the 50 grams of crushed leaves and place them in a pot. Add 1 liter of water.
Step : 2
Gently boil the leaves in the water for 15 minutes, you may stir or agitate the mixture for the first 5-10 minutes, but leave it to simply boil for the last 5.
Step : 3
Take the pot off the burner and pour the water into a container through a strainer. Once strained, squeeze or press the leaves, and drain any excess fluid into the container as well.
If you used a finely powdered kratom product, it would be best to use a coffee filter instead of a strainer, most powdered products slip right through strainers.
(squeeze the leaves in the strainer to get most of the liquid out).
Step : 4
After completing step 3, take the leaves from the strainer, place them back in the pot, and repeat steps 2 and 3, up to 3 more times. A good way to tell if its worth it to repeat again, is to taste (just a little) or smell the prior liquid yielded (before straining). If it has a strong, bitter, "kratomy" taste, then it would be worthwhile to repeat the process. If it has a much weaker, bland taste, then chances are, you removed most of the alkaloids in your previous extractions.
Step : 5
Finally, once done repeating steps 2 and 3, dispose of the leaves (I enjoy chewing on them, though, just a tip!), and turn back to the liquid yielded from the extraction.
The tea is bitter tasting. To minimize the unpleasant taste, gulp it down quickly and then immediately chase it with some pleasant-tasting fruit juice.
Step : 6
Drinking kratom tea isn't pleasant for everybody. I personally enjoy it with any combination of honey, sugar, and/or fruit juice. Start small with your doses (if you used 50g/L then one to three cups, depending on bodyweight/tolerance), as too large a dose of kratom could result in a negative experience.
No specifics on how much sugar/honey/juice to add, everyone's different, you know. But heres a tip. If you can't bear the taste well, don't bother mixing anything, just slam it down as fast as you can. If you are able to deal with the taste, try a mixture of sugar/honey/juice that satisfies you.
Step : 7
Drink and enjoy. Effects begin about 10-30 minutes after consumption, and last up to 4 hours.
The same general preparation method can of course be used with larger or smaller amounts of herb by simply adjusting the volume of water used. Kratom tea can be safely stored in the refrigerator for about five days. It is probably okay to keep it a bit longer, but it's better to play it safe and not drink it after five days. It can be stored for many months if you add some alcohol to it. Adding about 10% alcohol will preserve it for many months (in the refrigerator). That is one part 80 proof liquor (vodka, rum, or a similar spirit) to three parts kratom tea.
Things You'll Need:
- Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa, either dried leaves, or fine powder)
- Coffee Filter or Strainer
- Cup or Glass
- Honey, Juice, and/or Sugar (all optional)
