Map to Brewing Success: Kratom Tea Tips

Of course, you’ll want to make sure you’re on the right track when it comes to brewing your kratom-laced concoctions. Here are a few things to remember before brewing and some great tips to help you mix up the finest batch of kratom tea!

Charting the Right Course with Kratom Strains

There are many strains of kratom, each offering a unique flavor profile and effect. Red vein strains can offer much-needed relaxation and tranquility. Green vein strains provide a more balanced experience, while white vein strains tend to wake you up with energy and vitality. Remember to choose your strain wisely to set the tone for your kratom tea adventure

Navigating the Right Dosages

Like a seasoned explorer calculating provisions, you’ll want to accurately measure your kratom. If you’re wondering how much kratom you need to get high, the recommended starting dose is usually around two to four grams, but seasoned adventurers might dose a bit more up to five grams. Equip yourself with a trusty digital scale to ensure your experience begins on the right note.

Preparing Kratom Leaves or Powder

Kratom comes in both whole-leaf and powdered forms. If you’re using leaves, tear or crush them first so those alkaloids can mingle. If you’re using powdered kratom, make sure the grind is fine, so it moves smoothly through your tea.

Steering Clear of Boiling Point Blunders

It’s crucial not to boil kratom directly. Boiling can ruin its alkaloids. If you want a bitter brew, simmer it gently (around 160-180°F or 70-80°C) and then add your kratom. Stir it every few minutes for an even infusion. Let it steep for 15-20 minutes.

Experiment with a Citrus Boost

Get even more adventurous and mix a splash of citrus juice with your water before steeping. Whether you use lemon, lime, or orange juice, it helps with alkaloid extraction and adds a zesty flavor.
