Brewing Kratom 101

There are a few main ingredients when making your first Kratom tea.

  1. Kratom Powder
  2. Lemon Juice (or any citric acid)
  3. Water (purified preferred)

The first thing you should do is to get 1 gallon of purified water in a pot on the stove. You want to get the water heated up to just before the boiling point. Using boiling water can kill the active ingredients in the Kratom. Why the water is reaching temperature go ahead and measure 20 grams into a bowl and add 1-3 ounces of lemon juice on-top of the powdered Kratom. The acid (lemon juice) added in Kratom activates the beneficial alkaloids in the plant.

Once that water reaches the correct temperature you want to take the pot off the stove and add the Kratom powder into the mix. A good baseline would be to use .5 grams of Kratom per cup of water. Once you are familiarize with the effects you can up that dose according to your needs. In this case we will use 20 grams for our one gallon, which should serve about 16 cups. After you stir in your mixture, you want to periodically stir the mixture until the Kratom has reached room temperature.

At this point, you can take a coffee strainer and pour through the Kratom into a clean bucket until all the sediment (or very little left) is strained out. You want to make sure the Kratom is room temperature before putting the bucket into the fridge for storing (up to one week without flavor). Putting the Kratom into the fridge at a hot temperature can shock and kill the alkaloids and result in the tea not having much effect. At this point you have made yourself a good tea and are ready to pour yourself a glass and add any flavored syrup you may like. Fruity flavors are usually the best to cover the bitterness of the tea for first time Kratom drinkers.

Note: You can also drink the tea in its warm state which will onset the effect faster. Add flavoring if needed.
