People around the globe, from many cultures, enjoy different types of tea daily. But have you heard about Kratom tea? Kratom tea is unlike your average cup of tea; it offers a unique experience that combines traditional tea rituals with the distinct properties of kratom leaves.

 In this blog, we will walk through how to make a Kratom tea recipe, but first, let’s dive a little into the background of Kratom tea and how it transformed from a local secret into a global phenomenon.

What Is Kratom?

Kratom has truly made a mark in the world of botanicals. This evergreen tree originated in Southeast Asia and is known as Mitragyna Speciosa. It has leaves that contain active compounds. In the wild, Kratom trees can grow over 80 meters tall and have a trunk with a circumference of over 4 meters. Kratom tea is a special kind of tea made from the leaves of Kratom tea. People drink it for various unique effects, like energizing and uplifting. It may affect mood and help manage pain because of particular substances in the leaves.

Kratom Tea Serving Size?

The serving size of Kratom tea depends on individual tolerance, the desired effects, and the strength of the Kratom used. When you have one or two servings, the effects are may energizing. On the other hand, if you have 3 to 5 servings, the effects might be calming.

If you’re a beginner, you can start with 1 to 2 grams of Kratom powder for a mild effect. The serving size might range from 3 grams to 5 grams if you want more potent effects. There have yet to be scientific studies of this curve of the impact. Still, some Kratom experts have hypothesized that when making Kratom tea, each alkaloid dissolves in the hot water at a different rate. This means that a longer steeping time would provide other effects.

Kratom Tea Recipes

There are many Kratom tea recipes available. Let’s discuss

1- Boiling Pot method

This method is ideal for preparing Kratom tea in bulk. This is perfect for entertaining guests or making reserves for later use.

Essentials You Need:

  • A pot of medium to large size
  • 4-6 cups of water
  • Your choice of Kratom, either as leaves or powder
  • A strainer

Method Of Preparation 

Boil water in your pot. Once the water starts boiling, lower the heat and add your preferred amount of Kratom. Let it simmer for about 10-20 minutes. Strain the mixture into a pitcher or jar for either immediate serving or future use. If you’re using powder, wait a minute for the sediment to settle before serving. You can add any sweetener to mask the bitter flavour. 

2- Teapot Method

Making Kratom tea through the teapot method is very simple.

Essential You Need:

  • A kettle 
  • Sufficient water for the vessel
  • Tea bags or tea infuser
  • Kratom in leaf form or powder


Fill a tea bag or infuser with your chosen amount of Kratom. Heat your water to boiling, then let it sit for a minute to slightly cool. Pour the hot water over the Kratom-filled tea bag or infuser placed in your cup. Steep according to taste or patience level. You can squeeze a lemon slice to enhance the flavour. You can also add a little sugar or honey. If you’re a fan of iced tea, put the lemon and sweetener in while it’s hot, store the brewed tea in the fridge overnight, and pour over ice the next day. 

3- Cold Brew Method

Making Kratom tea through the cold brew method is a refreshing alternative.

Essential You Need:

  • A large jar
  • Cold water
  • Kratom leaf or powder
  • A strainer 


Start by placing your desired amount of Kratom powder or leaves into the jar or pitcher. Fill the vessel with cold water and ensure the Kratom is fully submerged. Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure the Kratom is evenly distributed. Cover the jar and place it in the refrigerator. Let it steep overnight or at least 6-8 hours to allow the Kratom to infuse into the water fully. The longer it steeps, the stronger the tea will be. Use a strainer or cloth to separate the Kratom leaves from the liquid. 

4- Sun Tea Method

Kratom leaves naturally release their essence into water. While hot water works quickly to absorb flavours, cold water will also do the trick. The preparation method, whether through heat or time, doesn’t necessarily impact the intensity of the flavour but offers a different experience. Brewing sun tea is an excellent method to create your drink in bulk and provide a satisfying homemade touch with minimal effort. 

Essentials Of Sun Tea

  • A clean jug
  • Water
  • Kratom leaves


Start by filling your jug with cool or room-temperature water. If you’re opting for Kratom tea bags, then use 7-10 bags. However, it’s advisable to use leaves rather than powder. Locate a spot that receives ample sunlight, place your jug there, and ensure it gets direct sunlight for at least one hour and up to five hours. Feel free to move the container to keep it warm in the sun. This method will allow the gradual infusion of flavours to create a unique tea experience with just a touch of sunshine. 

Should You Use Kratom Leaf, Crushed Leaf, Or Kratom Tea Bags?

Kratom comes in different forms, and choosing between them depends on your personal preference, convenience, and the quality of experience. Using Kratom leaves is the traditional method. Whole leaves require more effort to be prepared as they need to be thoroughly cleaned and possibly broken down before use. This method is ideal for a more authentic and smoother tea experience.

On the other hand, crushed Kratom leaf is a convenient middle ground between whole leaves and powder; it’s easier to measure and handle than whole leaves and may offer a more consistent rewind experience. Crushed leaves also make straining Kratom tea easier and reduce the amount of plant material in your final drink. This form is excellent for those who enjoy the ritual of brewing tea but want a more convenient option than whole leaves. 

Kratom tea bags offer the utmost convenience and are perfect for those with a busy lifestyle. Pre-measured and ready-to-use tea bags eliminate the need to measure scales and strainers. However, the convenience might come at the cost of freshness and potency as the Kratom in tea bags can be of varying quality and might have been ground and stored for a more extended period. 

Tips For Preparation Of Your Kratom Tea

Here are some tips to make your Kratom tea experience the best.

  • Always start with high-quality BedRock Kratom. The fresher, the better; it has more potent effects and a more admirable taste. 
  • Use a scale to measure your Kratom accurately.
  • Don’t pour boiling water directly onto your Kratom, as high heat may destroy some of its active compounds.
  • Squeeze some lemon juice into your water before steeping the Kratom to improve taste and also help extract more of the beneficial compounds from the Kratom.
  • Give your tea enough time to steep for a more robust taste.
  • Start with a lower dose of Kratom and see how your body reacts. 

Final Thoughts!

Kratom tea is made from the Kratom leaves that are steeped in boiling water. Although different methods of steeping offer unique experiences. Make sure to use Kratom powder that is free from impurities and other additives. Always seek and purchase high-quality Kratom tea powder or Kratom leaves.

Kratom tea is said to be just as enjoyable as regular tea but enhanced with the added effects of Kratom. Try to use Kratom responsibly and with care because the diverse effects of Kratom are too risky to be careless. Always start with low proportions and increase the amount in small portions.
