Understanding The Allure Of Kratom Tea, And How To Make It

Venturing into the vast world of botanical brews, one herbal concoction has stirred curiosity and discussion among tea lovers: kratom tea. Its distinct profile and potential for personalized brews make it a fascinating choice for adventurous kratom enthusiasts. Beyond its intriguing taste, this brew offers a canvas for experimentation with diverse mix-ins and complementary ingredients. 
As more people explore herbal teas, one can’t help but wonder about the captivating essence of this particular infusion. Before you start making kratom tea, let’s look into this unique brew, how it’s made, and the potential benefits.

Why Make Kratom as a Tea?

The tea enjoys a number of advantages over traditional herbal powder consumption. Most noticeable, of course, is the increased ease of use. Kratom is an organic substance with little in the way of taste. In fact, the argument would hold that kratom has a taste that is more grassy than sassafras. In other words, it doesn’t taste great. Even without added flavor to your tea, it makes the experience much more palatable.

And then consider all the additional flavorings. You can include a traditional tea flavor, as well as other additives such as honey. Some teas, like green tea, can work synergistically with kratom to improve the effects of both. An energetic tea paired with a green vein kratom might make Monday mornings even easier. So too would a nighttime tea with a red vein improve your prospects of a good night’s sleep.

The natural substances pair well together to create a gentle collage of benefits, as reported by users and dictated by strain. However, you can also find kratom capsules for sale which might mitigate concerns on the overall taste of the tea.

Why Has It Been Getting So Popular?

Experiencing kratom as a tea actually increases the effectiveness of the product, according to many users. As long as one is careful not to bring the water to a boil when making kratom tea, as the boiling temperatures can degrade the alkaloids which are responsible for the effects of kratom, many users report that they enjoy better effects from tea than from traditional powder options. This may be due to some interaction of the heat catalyzing the absorption of the alkaloids.

The Efficacy of Kratom Tea

However, some users report that kratom tea does not increase the efficacy of the plant. Instead, these users report that there is a misconception of increased potency due to activation time. As the body processes liquid faster than solids – and, for example, taking kratom in a capsule further increases activation time – that the quickened onset of effects with the tea can present a false impression of increased strength.

But it may be a moot point. If a user feels that the tea is stronger for them, their perception dictates the truth, and therefore, we cannot say that it is not true. The placebo effect aside, it likely comes down to personal preference. Bear in mind that the tea, for the same reasons it has quick onset, may have a shorter duration, depending on a number of other factors.

  • Aside from the quicker activation time, which in some instances may be preferable for users – like those who wish to take a green vein and get an energy boost early in the morning – the tea also sits well for those who are averse to eating with their kratom. 
  • For some users, the kratom experience is more impacted by their stomach’s food content than others; therefore, these users may prefer to enjoy the initial effects on an empty stomach. This means you get to enjoy the kratom tea benefits better.
  • While another, smaller subset of kratom users have reported mild stomach discomfort when taking kratom powder on an empty stomach, tea further simplifies the experience. It allows a quick, caveat-free experience and is an excellent option for enjoying your mornings.

Making Kratom Tea

  • Heat water until just before it boils
    • Use a kettle or a microwave to heat water. Times may vary but expect anywhere from 20-40 seconds to get an idea of pre-boiling temperatures.
    • Measure your water according to the following consideration:
      • How much total liquid you want to drink
      • How much you want the taste diluted
  • Add the kratom powder
    • You can either stir the kratom into the hot water or add it into a cheesecloth or similar material and let it steep. If you choose to put the kratom in a cloth, you can knead the wet powder to help it steep. If you simply stir the kratom in, use a whisk or similar instrument to make sure no clumps remain.
  • Add in flavoring
    • Once your kratom is fully steeped, you can add in your flavoring
      • Another type of tea is a popular choice, preferably a citrus flavor. Citrus is a kratom potentiate and thus enhances the breakdown and consumption. For the same reason, adding in lemon/lime juice is a popular idea.
      • Honey is another popular choice
      • A splash of juice or milk
      • Sugar
  • Enjoy when the tea is the optimal temperature

For someone who is new to kratom, a good starting point would be about 2-4 grams. Others can likely maintain a similar amount to what they have found works well for them prior.

This herbal tea, for a variety of reasons, is an excellent way of enjoying kratom. It can better suit most kratom enthusiasts and has quicker onset for those who do not wish to wait. Some even claim it is more effective when enjoyed this way. So don’t fret about your allegiance to coffee. Go ahead and get used to making kratom tea for those relaxing mornings.
