The good news is that making the tea itself is not difficult at all and even a novice can do a great job. Historically, people prepared this tea by taking out the required dosage and allowing the leaves steep for 20 to 25 minutes in boiling water, depending upon the intensity you desire.
Then, the leaves can be strained and the remaining water can be consumed as Kratom tea. People can add sugar as per their taste and preference. But, the method has changed slightly in these modern times. Now, you need to take a pot containing 10 to 12 ounces of water and mix Kratom in it. Then, you need to allow the mixture to steep on high or low boil for about 10 to 12 minutes. When you are done steeping, the mixture can be strained and consumed. The end product is just as effective as it was with the traditional method.
At the end of the day, it should be remembered that the method used for preparing Kratom tea essentially depends on everyone’s preference. Some people who enjoy drinking extremely intense tea find it a better option to steep it longer on high boiling water. But, you also need to be mindful of the color of the tea. The darker the tea gets, the more intense the flavor will be. You don’t want it to get too intense or else the bitter taste of Kratom might become more obvious. In addition, you should also be cautious about the Kratom strain you are choosing for making tea.
This is due to the fact that some strains of the herb are naturally bitter and you will have an overall bitter taste, even in tea form. You can opt for the strains that are sweeter and can be easily consumed. Furthermore, you should also be aware that the sedative effects of Kratom are more powerful in tea form. Therefore, if you want to stay alert or energized, you should only consume Kratom tea before going to bed.
