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. Does anyone who relies on kratom for opioid withdrawals eventually cease using kratom all together? Or are you simply replacing one addiction for another? I’m genuinely interested in what you have to say.

    1. It will help it totally relieved my wd issues. I used it after I tapered off methadone 90mg to 1mg and I had terrible wd. . It does activate opioid receptors in your body. For me it’s nothing like using opiates I never have cravings for kratom. I’d say it’s effects are extremely mild. Could just be a tolerance thing for me though. I’d suggest starting with a low dose say 3 gram wait 30 min see how you feel then add a gram wait 30 min and repeat until you feel better. As for kratom wd again very mild just tired like you need a coffee and diarrhea because the stuff has anti diarrhea effects along with it activating opioid receptors so you’ll have to taper off kratom but it’s a cake walk compared to real opiates. To anyone that’s on methadone or thinking of it stay the hell away from it because it’s the HARDEST to get off. I almost went to the hospital because of methadone wd after a full taper to 1mg and had the worst wd I’d ever experienced Extreme anxiety, blood pressure 170/105 heart palpitations panic attacks difficulty breathing. If it wasn’t for kratom I may have died.

  2. Can I just put the kratom powder in a filter and make tea in my coffee maker?

  3. I have severe constipation with kratom, been taking it for many years, but started to get blockages. Very nasty, makes you puke and terrible abdominal pain.
    I am prescribed Morphine for pain, but find Kratom much better.
    Do you find drinking Kratom Tea less constipating than toss and wash?
    Love to hear anybodys opinion on this matter.
    I really do not want to quit Kratom, it has benefited me way too much.,

    1. All the fiber makes the constipation. Some people have to use daily enemas so as to ease the intestinal sisters. So yes yes would solve it. At the same time, I find that powder is much stronger than tea. Not sure if the heat destroys the alkaloids. May be worth it to try a solvent extract like 90 proof ethanol. It will extract with out damaging the alkaloids and you don’t have to pass all the dry plant matter.

  4. 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?

  5. 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?!?

    1. Hey, i make kratom tea everyday, twice a day. I just boil kratom and water together until most of the water is evaporated, then strain out all the water from the kratom make sure you get most of it out, you should end up with about 1/4 a cup of green water. Sweeten it, ice it, and down it. BOOM amazing kratom energy. 🙂

  6. 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!

        1. This can be avoided by drinking a lot of water. Standard medicines & supplements generally say take 8oz. of water per serving. With kratom, it’s actually closer to about 32oz. per serving, but could be more or less depending on your body type & weight. Internally, it’s the exact same thing as drinking the tea, minus burning off alkaloids, plus you get to enjoy your preferred method of toss & wash.

    1. Yes you can! I personally make cup of chamomile tea, then put in 4 grams of kratom, let it sit for ten minutes. Add a squeeze of lemon and enjoy. Try not to drink all the stuff on the bottom.
