Tea is one of the most popular beverages around the world, that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. While most of us are well equipped with the guidelines of preparing a delicious cup of tea, there are a few things to keep in mind while making a cup of Kratom tea. 

We have come up with a delicious recipe for Kratom tea with an easy-to-follow guideline.


INGREDIENTS (makes one serving)

  • 8 oz. of water
  • 4 oz. of lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar
  • Kratom powder (according to your dosage)
  • Sweetener, according to your taste.


  • Saucepan with a pour spout
  • Mini steel whisk, or a fork
  • Strainer, or coffee filter



Kratom is made up of the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine. The calming effects of Kratom can be credited to these alkaloids. 

Heating the water to a point of sub-simmer and not boiling the water helps to extricate the alkaloids, resulting in faster and more pleasant results. 

However, even though the alkaloids are stable at a considerably high temperature, it does not sustain in boiling water. So, heating your water up to a boiling point can cause your kratom to lose its effects. 


STEP 2: ADD ACID (lemon, apple cider vinegar)

To not lose the alkaloids in kratom, add an acidic element; such as lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. The acids in these ingredients help to neutralize and balance out the alkaloids and protect them from dissipating.

Even though the addition of acid is not absolutely necessary, it does speed up the process of brewing a strong cup of Kratom tea. This is as they encourage the micronized Kratom powder to mix in with the water by making it more water-soluble. 

As a bonus, it will add a delicious zesty taste to your Kratom tea beverage!

After you have brought your water to a sub-simmer and added in the acid of your choice, now it’s time to add in the kratom powder of your choice. A popular strain is Green Maeng Da, it is an overall well-balanced kratom strain.

How much kratom powder do I use? Start by adding your regular kratom dose, plus one extra gram for the best results. The amount of Kratom powder will vary from person to person.

However, it’s recommended to start slow, document your results, and adjust the dosage accordingly. Since adding Kratom to simmering water it will release the alkaloids, resulting to be stronger, and the effects are likely to kick in sooner.

TIP: If an energizing kick is what you’re looking for, using a white vein strain of Kratom is Ideal. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a relaxing cup of Kratom tea before hitting the hay, a red vein Kratom strain would be ideal.



Kratom powder can be a bit tricky to work with, especially when kratom powder is added to heated water. The powder will tend to bunch up and form clumps.

To break up the clumps, mix thoroughly with a mini whisk. An electric whisk is ideal for evenly spreading and breaking out the kratom powder clumps throughout the kratom tea. 



Now it is time to pour your kratom tea into your drinking cup. You’ll want to put a strainer, or coffee filter over the drinking cup before you pour your kratom tea into it. 

This is because the micronized powder does not completely dissolve in water, which will give your beverage a sandy texture. Let’s avoid that!

Popular suggestions include honey, agave juice, or sugar. These will add a delicious sweet taste to your tea making it a delightful kickstart to your day!

After adding the Kratom powder, slice up some ginger and add it to the tea. Then let it sit for another 5 minutes to allow the flavors of ginger to infuse in with the Kratom tea.

For a single serving, we recommend you use 3 slices of ginger to get a satisfying kick. You may also dial it down to 1 or 2 slices of ginger for a subtle hint of flavor.

TIP: For a more intense and lingering ginger flavor, you may lightly smash the ginger slices before adding them to your mix. This will help to release the flavors of the ginger providing you with a drink that packs a punch!

Kratom Tea FAQs:

  1. Will boiling water affect my Kratom tea?
    Plant alkaloids are very sensitive to hot temperatures. However, the alkaloids present in Kratom leaves can withstand a comparatively high temperature. Heating the water to a sub-simmer dilapidated the alkaloids causing the kratom tea to become diluted. The results might become milder, or you may not experience any effects at all.
  2. Can I make Kratom tea from different types of Kratom Strains?
    Yes, you absolutely can! However, do keep in mind that different strains of Kratom produce different results when it comes to the effects, as well as the taste and aroma it exudes. Experiment with different strains of Kratom. But as always, we suggest you always start with small doses and adjust accordingly.
  3. How do you get your Kratom powder to dissolve?
    Sometimes, Kratom powder does not fully dissolve in the water, which results in a sandy, gritty beverage. To tackle this issue, we recommend stirring thoroughly with an electric whisk and passing it through a coffee filter 2 to 3 times to ensure proper filtration of the Kratom powder.
