The kratom tea leaves plant (Mitragyna speciosa) are known to provide mood enhancement, pain relief, energy boosts and other desirable effects. The plant grows in Southeast Asia and is related to the coffee tree. While chewing kratom leaves is a traditional method of consumption, many consumers choose to make tea. Adding kratom to tea has been shown to increase the strength and duration of the desired effects.
When making kratom tea, the most important step is to find a reliable purveyor with a great reputation for quality products. A reputable vendor will be able to answer all of your questions and recommend the right product for you. They will also be able to explain how to best consume kratom to achieve the desired effect(s).
Crushed Leaf Kratom Tea: A Unique Brewing Experience and Its Benefits
Once you have found a good purveyor, start by placing your kratom in a jar or other airtight container and leaving it to dry. The drying process increases the potency and flavor of your kratom and will help to eliminate any unwanted components such as bugs or mold. The leaves should be dried until they no longer bend when touched and produce a distinct snapping sound when crushed.
Once the leaves have been dried, add them to a large pot of boiling water and allow the mixture to simmer for 10-20 minutes. Then pour the contents of the pot through a strainer or sieve into a suitable storage or serving container. If you wish to keep the leaves, let them cool and re-steep them for an additional batch of tea. Do not add any acid to your kratom tea, as it is believed that this may break down the alkaloids into less potent lookalikes.
