An Easy Kratom Tea Recipe

Kratom Tea

Kratom Tea

Ingredients:

  • 1 dose’s worth of kratom leaf (this may be dried or whole)
  • Distilled water
  • Honey
  • 1 Lime or Lemon

Procedure:

  1. Take the kratom leaf and weigh out enough of it for a single dose using a digital scale.  Obviously, the precise amount equivalent to one dose shall vary from user to user, but the most commonly recommended amount is anywhere from 5 to 8 grams for those with low or beginner’s tolerances to the drug.  The strength of the strain you have may need to be considered as well, so adapt the recipe as needed.
  2. Put a saucepan over heat and pour about 6 to 7 fluid ounces of distilled water into it.  Let it reach a boil (although not a raging one).
  3. Add the kratom to the boiling water and let it keep boiling for a quarter of an hour or until the water has reduced to half its original volume.
  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and hold it at a slight tilt to let the plant matter settle.
  5. Once the matter has accumulated at the bottom, pour the liquid inside the pan very carefully into a filter.  A regular coffee filter will do, unless your kratom leaf is still quite large (not in powdered form), in which case you can use a strainer with a tight weave.
  6. Collect the liquid in a cup below the filter and add honey and as much sliced lime or lemon to taste.
  7. Collect whatever plant matter is left in your filter and saucepan for a second boil to get the most out of the kratom.

Take note that the tea from the first infusion will naturally be more bitter-tasting and active than the one from the second.  Typically, you will only be able to get two usable brews from a dose of leaf, so get some fresh leaf if you need a third cup.  In my experience, drinking it while it is still hot is better, as it gets even more bitter when left to cool.  You can add as much honey and lemon as you want—it doesn’t seem to affect the kratom, as far as I can tell.
