Not sure about the best way to take your kratom powder? One of the easiest ways to get the fullest benefit out of your kratom is by brewing the powder (or leaves) into a tasty kratom tea. Don’t worry about the boiling water affecting the potency. Unlike most plants, the alkaloids found within kratom are perfectly stable in high temperatures.
The following kratom tea recipe is the easiest way to use the least amount of kratom powder possible to produce the most powerful drink. Fast, simple, and effective!
Why Brew Kratom Powder Into a Tea?
You may wonder why brewing a kratom tea is superior to using the Toss-and-Swish method, or just simply taking capsules. By heating the kratom with boiling water, the key alkaloids are released into your bloodstream faster than with any other method. This allows you to experience the effects sooner.
In addition, brewing a kratom tea by following the kratom tea recipe below will also cover the infamous bitter taste and make drinking it far easier. Adding sliced lemon and sugar will cover the bitter aftertaste and make drinking kratom more palatable.
Choosing the Right Powder
The first step is deciding which strain of kratom powder to use. Similar to selecting the ideal coffee bean for your morning java, selecting the ideal strain of kratom powder is necessary for creating the perfect kratom tea. It is important to remember each strain has a varying effect on the user due to differing alkaloid content. Click here to read how the differing alkaloids in strains help various ailments. Also, effects will range from person to person. It is always best to know ahead of time your preferred strain and dosage to make the best kratom tea.
For an energizing tea, a white strain of kratom powder will be the best. For instance, White Thai or White Maeng Da. For a more relaxing effect, consider using a red strain of kratom powder. Red Bali is exceptionally relaxing. Red Maeng Da is the way to go if you are brewing a tea to combat opioid addiction.

Perfect Dose is Key
Now that you have the perfect strain in mind, next you want to make sure to get the ideal dosage. Always remember that with kratom, less is more. High doses of kratom will cause a more relaxing effect, and smaller doses will create a more euphoric and energizing effect. It is always best to start with the lowest dose possible and adjust accordingly.
Starting off with too high of a dose may cause nausea, vomiting, and/or major migraine headaches. Of course, if you are using kratom extract powder, the dose should be lessened because extract powder is far more potent than regular kratom powder. Below is the recommended guideline for kratom dosage:
1 gram: Very mild effect
3 grams: Moderate effect
5 grams: Potent effect for most users
10 grams: Strong effect
15+ grams: Very strong effect – best for experienced users
Step-by-Step Kratom Tea Recipe
You will need:
- a tea kettle or basic metal pot
- a basic strainer (even cheesecloth or a coffee filter will work)
- pre-measured dose of kratom powder
- 2 cups of water
- a source of heat
- Bring 2 cups water to a boil.
- Add pre-measured kratom powder directly into boiling water.
- Lower the heat and let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Check the color of the tea. When it turns a deep orange or yellow color, remove the kettle from the heat.
- Hold the strainer over your mug and pour the liquid directly in.
- Discard the matter collected by the strainer (or save for a future, weaker brew).
Optional: Flavor the tea with honey, sugar, cinnamon, or stevia. Add lemon or your favorite slices of fruit for added zest. You can also pour the tea over ice or let it cool in the fridge for those hot days.
That’s it! Way easy! Sip the tea slowly and enjoy! Typically, effects are felt within 30 minutes. Most users will feel it far faster than that, depending on tolerance level and body weight. The ideal dose and strain are key to brewing the best kratom tea recipe.
Once you master this simple kratom tea recipe, play around with it and find the best method for yourself. You can even add kratom powder to your ground coffee and brew it into your morning java. The sky is the limit!
