What is Kratom Tea? How to make it? What is it good for?

If you’re a fan of both Kratom and tea, you’ve landed on the right blog post. Kratom tea has become a huge hit with kratom users due to its easy preparation and amazing taste. It's a great option for people who don't like traditional Kratom products, such as plain powder, capsules, or extract shots. As we mentioned in our “How To Take Kratom” section on our “Learn” page, most kratom users will opt for simply mixing Kratom powder with water, but the one downside to this is the bitter taste. Therefore, one of the main reasons kratom users prefer Kratom tea over other products, is that it masks the bitter taste from the alkaloids, making it taste much better, but still being easily consumable. The best part of it all, is it only takes a few minutes to prepare, and you can do it all from the comfort of your cozy home.

This blog post is a guide on kratom tea, explaining what it is, how you can make it, and what it’s good for. Let’s get brewing!

What is Kratom Tea?

Kratom tea is an herbal beverage made by brewing kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) leaves or powder in hot water. Depending on the user's choice, it can also be prepared from fresh and dried leaves, and you can also add a sweetener of your choice.

How to make Kratom Tea?

Here’s a step-by-step guide to making kratom tea:

Step 1:

Add 2-4 cups of water to a clean pot or saucepan.

Step 2:

Boil the water for a few minutes before removing the saucepan from the stove.

Step 3:

After 1-2 minutes, add the desired amount of kratom leaves or powder to the water. For more information on typical serving sizes, please refer to our “Kratom Serving Size” section on our “Learn” page.

Step 4:

After adding kratom powder to the water, let the mixture simmer for 15-20 minutes with occasional stirring, allowing the alkaloids to dissolve properly in the water.

Step 5:

After 15-20 minutes, remove the saucepan from the stove and strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer to remove the undesired kratom powder. You can also use cheesecloth for the straining process.

Step 6:

Once the tea is properly strained out, it’s ready to be consumed! However, you may want to go one step further also add a sweetener before serving. Honey and sugar are two popular sweeteners that can be used in kratom tea. Some people prefer honey over sugar, as it’s a natural sweetener. If you’re a fan of keto like many of us here at NuKine Wellness, you can also use swerve or erythritol.

One thing to note when making your kratom tea is the color. The color of freshly prepared kratom tea is intense orange with a yellowish hue. So, if you noticed you get any other color,  there’s a chance the tea may not have been prepared or strained out properly.

Depending on your personal preferences, kratom tea can be served hot or chilled. You can also make ice Kratom tea by adding ice cubes to relax and kick back on a warm summer day.

What is Kratom Tea Good For?

It’s important to remember that changing the way you consume your Kratom powder wont necessarily change it’s benefits when brewing tea. You will still get the same great benefits as you normally do when taking Kratom powder by itself, or in capsule form. This is just a much more delicious and fun way to get those desired effects. For more information on the effects and benefits, you can refer to the “Kratom Strains” section on our “Learn” page, or descriptions listed under each individual product we carry. However, we’d like to end by saying, it's always best to consult your doctor or a healthcare professional before making and consuming Kratom tea.

As you can see, preparing Kratom tea is an easy affair. The most important part is making sure you start with the best ready-made, GMP-Compliant, and lab-tested Kratom powder.
