Making Kratom Teas That Taste Great (4 Kratom Tea Recipes Included)

Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, comes from the country of Asia, Thailand, and Africa. Many enjoy the herbal plant in several forms, but one form, in particular, is tea. Its popularity is surfacing to other countries for kratom’s abundant benefits and energetic qualities.

Many people enjoy kratom simply through a capsule or powdered form, however brewing it in tea form provides you a more enjoyable experience. When brewing, there are ways to make it that involves strength, quality, timing, and storing. All are essential to making kratom teas taste better. So we put together some great kratom tea recipes for you here. And you can now order crushed leaf kratom to brew your own tea!

How to Make Kratom Tea to Fit Your Desired Taste

You can start making mitragyna speciosa teas from the leaf or powder of your choosing. The best way to start making the tea depends on your personal preference as everyone has their unique likes and dislikes. You can steep it for a long period to create a stronger drink or you can steep it in lesser time for a weaker drink.

The following kratom tea recipes will require you to add 1- 4 cups of water, but the more water you have then the less kratom flavor your drink will contain. Also, some recipes will provide different ingredients, yet you can substitute each ingredient to anything you desire.

Also, the herb has an alkaloid content you can retain to receive the full benefits. In doing so, you can squeeze a lemon in a cup with either the powder or leaf for a few minutes to retain those alkaloids.

However, if you choose to skip this step, you can still keep most of the alkaloid content by using the powdered leaf. It’s quicker and you’ll still get most of the alkaloid content without working too hard to make your tea.

When starting, use 1 gram or ½ teaspoon per cup of tea then increase the dosage to your desired taste.

Should you buy kratom tea bags, or make it yourself?

When buying kratom teas, it’s essential to make it yourself in the environment of your home. Some products may not have all the necessary ingredients you enjoy and may contain inappropriate ingredients. It’s why making tea yourself will give you better success than buying tea online. Plus, you can add anything to your drinks then adjust the ingredients in need.

Another option would be taking kratom capsules, rather than making tea yourself. It is important to make sure that you review our complete guide to kratom capsules so that you can be educated on important things to consider, as well as options.


What are the benefits of drinking kratom teas? 

A research report called the “Pharmacology of Kratom”, suggests that kratom was used to ward off tiredness, comfort aches, and support digestion. However, there haven’t been any clinical trials on humans to support this direction.

In animal models (mice), the powdered herb supported the following:

  • Comfort Support
  • Inflammation Support
  • Euphoria

However, this study was done on straight kratom and not brewed tea. So, in reality, the benefits may support humans positively, but in tea form, these benefits may not apply. The actual tea is less potent than the powder itself because it brews for a longer period which can allow the herb to lose some of the contents including the side effects. More clinical studies are needed before there’s anything valid to say about the benefits of kratom.

Here’s what the other research notes about the effects kratom tea has when drinking it:
  • Mood Support
  • Ache and Pain Support
  • Supports Digestion

The only real way to discover kratom’s hidden powers is to experiment with it yourself. Drinking it through teas is a good place to start because it isn’t as strong unless you desire the strength in your drink.



Where to Buy Kratom Powder and Leaves?


If you’re considering getting kratom powder or leaves then you’ll need to get it from a reliable source. It’s necessary to get the herb with no other ingredients added into the mix. When buying online, make sure to find a pure product with 100% kratom leaves or powder. Also, keep in mind to find a product that passes all high-quality testing standards. The purer your powder is then the better your drink will taste.
