You don’t lose any effectiveness from the Kratom powder when it’s mixed in with tea and your tea can be scaled to your preferred strength. In fact, you can drink a fully energized cup or an anxiety-relieving concoction… it’s all what you want!
Effects of Kratom Tea
The leaves of the Kratom tree, which is found in Southeast Asia, is well-known for its multiple medicinal benefits. Native cultures, for thousands of years, have eaten the leaves, grounded them into a powder and boiled them to make ceremonial teas. Why is that? Heat causes the kratom to release the powerful alkaloids quicker than chewing does. Once the alkaloids are out in the water, the alkaloids are absorbed into the blood quicker, which produces the effects you feel faster.
Can boiling the water cause damage to the medicine’s psychoactive alkaloids? Actually no! The superstars of kratom – Mitragynine, for instance – will remain stable in all kinds of temperatures.
Brewing Kratom Tea from Powder
When it comes to choosing the perfect kratom tea recipe, it’s important you know what kind of leaves you plan on using. Any powdered kratom will work although many people often find that the Red Bali produces the more relaxing effect – slowing things down and letting your worries go. If you want a powerful kick to your energy level, then you want to use the powerful Maeng Da Kratom. You may also use the Vietnam Kratom or Sumatran strain too. The effects you get are based upon two things:
• Personal taste
Experimentation is necessary to find the right one.
The Best Kratom Tea Recipes to Prepare
When you get ready to make your tea, the first step is to measure out the right kratom powder dosage. This amount is going to vary on tolerance and preference, but the basic rules apply below:
• One gram – extremely mild effects
• Three grams – moderate effects
• Five grams – powerful effects for the majority of people
• 10 grams – powerful effects
• 15+ grams – very powerful effects (only best for the experienced users)
If you’re going to use the extract powder, you need only a smaller amount. Look at the packaging and decrease the dosage you put into the recipe.
Instructions for How to Make Kratom Tea
What do you need to properly make your tea?
• Kettle (Deep pot too)
• Strainer (cheesecloth works too)
• Heating source
• Kratom powder (Or Tea Bag)
1 – Boil a cup and half of water in the kettle (or deep pot)
2 – Add pre-measured amount of kratom powder into the boiling water
3 – Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes
4 – Check the tea’s color. If it’s deep yellow or orange color, take the kettle off the heating source
5 – Hold strainer over mug and pour the liquid into it
6 – Throw away the mater left in the strainer (you can save it for a weaker brew)
Additional recipe Advice
You could also flavor your tea with stevia, cinnamon, sugar or honey. If it’s a hot day, put ice in the glass and pour tea over it. Or, you can put it into the refrigerator. Cut a lime and lemon in half and add it to the water before brewing anything. The acidity from the lime or lemon can protect the alkaloids and give the drink additional flavor.
That’s it! Just sip on it slowly, and within 30 minutes you should start feeling the effects. Keep in mind that the above Kratom tea recipe is general and will work. But, you can perfect your own concoction with a little experimentation. Just get the right type of Kratom powder in the right dosage and there’s no way you can mess up. And, if you are worried, consider buying Kratom tea bags.
