Kratom Tea Preparation Instructions

Kratom TeaWhile many people like the “toss and wash” method of kratom consumption, making it into a tea is a much more pleasant experience for many. The taste can be pretty bitter, but with the right preparation it’s comparable to an extremely potent green tea flavor.

Start by measuring out between 1 teaspoon of powdered leaf. Using an extract is not recommended, as the hot water may break down some of the alkaloids, there’s no added benefit, and it’s more expensive. Boil 2-4 cups of water. The more water you use, the less strong the flavor, but as long as you drink it all the effects will be exactly the same.

Put the kratom powder into a large cup or container with a pour lip, and pour the boiling water on top. Stir until it is thoroughly mixed. Be sure there aren’t any clumps of dry powder. I highly recommend adding sugar, artificial sweeter, or honey (honey works the best to cut the bitterness), and stir. If using artificial sweetener, 2 packets is a good starting amount. Let sit until cool (at least 15 minutes), stirring occasionally.

Once cooled, allow the powder to settle to the bottom. Pour the tea into a drinking cup, and enjoy! At this point you can add more sweetener to taste, or add water or ice cubes to dilute the flavor. As long as you drink all of the liquid, the effects will be the same.

  1. Can anyone tell me what to do with two Kratom caps? I am waiting for. Y order to arrive in a storm and I only have two left. Should I make a tea or just wait it out?

  2. First time making maeng da tea. I booked 8 grams into 2 cups water. Not sure how long to let it boil in there. And hoping I feel the effects. Any help?!?

  3. After pouring tea into a cup, do u discard the powder? Reading so many blogs on different sites, some say to reuse the powder. It’s my First time trying to make a tea and want to do it correctly.

    1. Hi Oeyenee! If I were you, I would not keep the leftover powder, I would strain all the liquid and then throw it away. Kratom is cheap enough that it’s not a big deal, and the remaining powder will only create less potent tea. Some people like to put it back into a pot immediately after and boil it and strain it again to get the most out of their kratom. I would say you can do this but it really depends on your tolerance. There really aren’t any wrong answers.

      I definitely wouldn’t eat the leftover sludge though. That’s one of the reasons us weak-stomached people make tea, so we don’t have to eat so much plant matter. And yes, straining your kratom does inheed take away a bid of the effects but they’re still very noticeable. It’s a good tradeoff for a happy tummy!

      1. Okay, so I’m glad to read I’m not the only one having tummy issues here. I have been getting such bad cramps after taking Kratom with just the toss and wash method. I’m glad to hear the tea helps!
