The dried and crushed (or powdered) leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa tree, which is native to Southeast Asia, are known as kratom. The kratom tree is related to the coffee tree in terms of botanical family. For thousands of years, it’s been used as a therapeutic and recreational herbal medication, and it has stimulant (low doses), sedative (high doses), analgesic, and (yes) euphoric, opiate-like effects. Kratom includes alkaloids that are comparable to those found in pharmaceutically produced synthetic opiates, although it is considered to be far less addictive. In fact, kratom is occasionally used to help with opiate addiction withdrawal symptoms. Kratom tea making is a tropical tree found in Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. To counteract weariness and enhance stamina, residents chew the leaves, smoke them, or make tea with them.
7-a-hydromitragyine and mitragynine, two chemicals contained in Kratom leaves, interact with brain receptors to restore inner peace. Mitragynine also interacts with other receptors to improve cognitive function and attention. Kratom consumers describe an overall sense of well-being when taken in tiny doses.
Products you need to make the tea
Crushed-leaf premium kratom powder in a half-ounce dose. Some people use powdered kratom, but many don’t like it since it produces murky kratom tea. – 2 liters distilled water (for two 1 litre brewing cycles). – Lemon Juice (optional)- A percolator for the cooktop. – A second container, such as a 2-quart pitcher, to combine the two brew cycles
How to prepare it?
- To dampen the kratom leaves, place them in the percolator basket and pour 1 liter of water through the basket and into the percolator before putting the upper strainer on. After that, experts prefer to make sure the kratom is equally spread in the basket. Some people claim that mixing up to 25% lemon juice with the water helps extract the alkaloids from the kratom leaf; nonetheless, this is a personal decision.
- Once the water has heated up and is beginning to percolate, set the timer for at least 15 minutes… 20-25 minutes is more to my liking. Keep the flame as low as possible; a fairly hard boil results in awful-tasting kratom tea!
- After the first brew, leave the kratom in the basket (you can press them with a tablespoon to extract more liquid, but it’s not necessary), pour your brew into a 2-quart container, then pour the second liter of clear water (or lemon-water) through the kratom-filled basket and brew it for 15 minutes or more, just like the first.
- You’ll notice that the second brew cycle yields a lighter tea since you’ve removed all of the beneficial properties from the kratom leaves and thereby exhausted them.
- After discarding the leaves (some people eat them – YUCK! ), you can combine the two brews in a 2-quart jar to chill. Some people like to boil the combination longer to get a stronger tea.
- Experts pour the kratom tea into cleaned-out plastic iced tea bottles, refrigerate what many need in a few days, and freeze the remainder when it has cooled. Refrigerated kratom tea lasts around 5 days, but frozen tea lasts for months.
Use hot water that isn’t boiling.
Alkaloids are the active compounds in Kratom that are responsible for triggering positive health benefits. While the active alkaloid components in Kratom are stable at high temperatures. Use heated and slightly cooled water, or heat water until it is just about to boil before adding it to the Kratom in your teacup. It is always preferred that you must not boil the leaves directly.
Kratom includes nitrogen-containing alkaloids. Although Kratom alkaloids are resilient, they can degrade when exposed to excessively high temperatures for lengthy periods of time, leaving you with a less effective brew. Adding an acidic item like lemon or apple cider vinegar to your tea can assist to buffer the process that breaks down the alkaloid chemicals while also giving it a nice zing.
Sweeteners should be used.
Although Kratom is extremely good for your health, it has a rather harsh taste. When you eat many grams of Kratom, any powder that adheres to your tongue might cause the bitterness to remain. It is always a good idea to add sweeteners. You can enjoy the best-flavored tea by adding a little bit of sweetener.
When brewing Kratom tea, use sweeteners like sugar, honey, or agave juice to cover the flavor. To hide the flavor, you can infuse the tea with various flavorings like ginger, citrus zest, or cinnamon.
Stir everything together thoroughly
If you use powder to make Kratom tea, you may notice that the powder settles in clumps that are unpleasant to drink. Stirring the granules is essential for a smooth tea. Powder lumps can be broken up with a little whisk. For uniformly spreading the powder particles throughout the tea, a Matcha tea whisk is perfect.
Taste must be diluted
The less water you need to make your tea, the milder the bitter flavor will be. If you want to get the same advantages as your regular dose, make sure you finish the cup.
Determine the Appropriate Dose
Kratom tea is a good way to get started with the benefits of Kratom. However, in order to enjoy the benefits, you must utilize the proper Kratom dose for your body. Kratom has a serving size of 2.4g. In a 24-hour period, do not consume more than 2 servings. If you’re new to Kratom, start slowly and keep track of how it improves your health.
