Kratom comes in many forms, but one of the most effective ways it can be used is in tea form. Many people naturally enjoy tea, and kratom tea is actually the most common way that it’s consumed in the regions where kratom originates—in Southeast Asia.
Chewing fresh kratom leaves remain to be the best way to get the most results out of kratom, but that’s not always available. Kratom tea is a viable second option, which will give you similar results to chewing fresh leaves. Many people have reported different effects when drinking kratom tea from leaves versus consuming it in powder form.
When consumed in tea form, kratom is more rapidly absorbed in the body. Because of this, the pain-relieving effects of kratom are reduced slightly. On the other hand, the euphoric effects and mood-boosting capabilities of kratom are dramatically increased through this method of consumption.
How to Make the Most of Kratom Tea
Remember that kratom tea will not be best in alleviating pain. If you’re looking simply to enhance your mood, using kratom tea is your best option.
To make the most of the experience, many have suggested drinking kratom on an empty stomach. This way, the kratom is readily absorbed into the body.
Kratom is also a bitter drink. Many people find that drinking kratom is something that you would have to get used to. However, there is a benefit to drinking kratom tea quickly rather than sipping on it. You can get a boost in the effects by simply drinking the tea quicker.
It also makes a big difference if kratom tea is made properly. Steeping kratom in powder form takes about 10 minutes until it’s ready. Many people mistake kratom tea for regular tea, and steep only for a few minutes. However to get the most out of your kratom experience, you’ll need to actually steep the kratom tea for 30 to 40 minutes to get the full effects. You’ll want to strain the leaves from the tea in order to make it more enjoyable.
Another idea to make kratom tea more enjoyable is by adding milk and sugar. The addition of those ingredients will not take away from the effects of kratom whatsoever. Many people also find that iced kratom tea is more enjoyable than drinking it hot. Of course, this is to your preference, but it’s definitely an available option.
You can also add flavored syrup to your kratom tea to alter the bitter taste just a little bit. The flavored syrups are similar to the ones you would normally add to your coffee for flavor. One of the most popular flavors that work well with kratom is raspberry. You could always try other flavors to see which one you prefer the most.
