Kratom are often consumed in a tea that goes well mixed and then drunk. The Kratom can be smoked but doing so there is no advantage over chewing or making a tea from it. The amount of leaf that constitutes a typical dose is too much to be easily smoked. A pasty extract can be prepared with a lengthy boiling of fresh or dried leaves, so it can be stored for later use. Small pellets of this extract can be swallowed, or may be dissolved in hot water and consumed as a tea. Some people like to mix Kratom tea with ordinary black tea, or other herbal teas, before being consumed. This is done to make it more palatable. Sugar or honey can be added to sweeten it.
Here is a basic recipe how to make Kratom tea. This recipe makes enough tea for 8 to 16 mild doses, 4 average-strength dose, or two moderately strong doses …
1- Take 50 grams of dried leaves of Kratom crushed and put them in a pan and add 1 liter of water.
2- Boil over low heat for 15 minutes.
3- Pour the tea through a strainer into a bowl and keep liquid. Sprayer the leaves in the filter to get most of the liquid.
4- Put the leaves back into the pot and add another liter of fresh water. Repeat steps 2 and 3 (after the leaves have been pressed a second time, can be discarded).
5- Put the combined liquid of both boiling back into the pot and boil until the volume is reduced to about 100 ml. (The idea is to boil until it reaches a “concentrate” in such a way that each subsequent small dose can be rapidly ingested. With a bit of familiarity can customize the concentration final. Fare attention to the end of the boiling process, if starts to become too syrupy may splash).
The tea has a bitter taste, to minimize the unpleasant taste you drink quickly and immediately you drink some more pleasant type of drink juice. The same general preparation method can of course be used with greater or lesser amounts of herbs by simply adjusting the volume of water utilization. Kratom tea can be stored in the refrigerator for about five gram. Probably you can keep a little longer, but it is better to play it safe and not drink it after five days. It can be stored for many months if you add a bit of alcohol. Preserve by about 10% alcohol, it will save you many months (in the refrigerator). The dose is one part of liquor (vodka, rum, alcohol or the like) to three parts Kratom tea.
