Kratom Powder is very versatile. It can be used in various beverages and food. It can be an ingredient to any food or drink item such that it could be added to an enjoyable afternoon treat like tea.
But how can Kratom be used for tea? Tea usually conjures up images of crushed dried leaves that are bagged in either cloth or paper teabags. Either way, it is generally from dried leaves that are immersed and steeped in hot water.
Kratom leaves are a good source of tea. Not everyone, though, would have the resource to boil fresh leaves and make it into a healthy beverage that keeps energy levels up, and illnesses at bay. Dried leaves made into a tea can be hard to source as well, especially in areas where Kratom is not indigenous. IN the United States, for instance, Kratom usually is available in powdered form. Powdered Kratom, fortunately, can be used to make tea.
What types of tea can be made using Kratom powder?
There is a substantial number of tea drinks that can be made using Kratom powder. And just like any powder concentrate made into tea, all a person has to do is to add the powdered Kratom to hot water, and they already have Kratom Tea. A squeeze of lemon or a teaspoon of honey can be added to make the taste more pleasant.
Hot or Cold?
Kratom tea can be enjoyed hot or cold. Like any other tea-based beverage, it can be taken at any time of the day. And because it is in powdered form, it can be enjoyed right away — no more steeping time or waiting for at least 10 minutes. Kratom Tea is an instant tea.
As for cold or iced Kratom tea, just refrigerated the hot Kratom tea, or add it to a glass that is full of ice cubes. Add a slice of lemon or a spoonful of honey or preferred sweetener. Some choose low calories sweeteners, some like honey, while others prefer agave, stevia, or other more natural forms of low-calorie sugar.
Kratom Tea Recipes
Kratom users who love to consume it as tea can have various kinds of Kratom tea. Below are some recipes for Kratom-based tea drinks:
1. Basic Kratom Tea. Add the desired amount of Kratom powder into hot water. Add honey or any sugar substitute plus a squeeze of lemon if desired.
