Majority of vendors do not sell kratom leaves because it’s not native to the states and when it comes into the country it tends to arrive in powder form.
But is there a difference to the effects of kratom when it remains in leaf form? Some say they notice a big difference while others say its the same. Regardless, we believe it is worth trying, especially if you love tea.
How to make Kratom tea with leaves?
To make Kratom tea, the consumer will need a pot of water, crushed leaves and an infuser. Simply boil the water. Add the crushed leaves into the infuser and then set that infuser in the cup that is filled with the hot water. Let it steep there for 3-5 minutes. Sip this tea immediately while hot. Now, kratom has a bitter taste. Some don’t mind it while others think it tastes disgusting. If you are one who hates the taste, you can add a flavor enhancer like honey or lemon to the tea.
We found one vendor that carries both the crushed kratom tea leaves and an infuser, so try Ketum Superior Kratom if you want to give crushed kratom tea a try! #kratom #kratomtea #crushedkratomleaves #holistictea #ketum

How much kratom should I consume?
- 1-2 Grams: Basic dose, the effects will be short-lived and mainly mood-enhancing.
- 2-4 Grams: Moderate dose, it shows stimulatory and energy-producing potential. It is the ideal dose to use.
- 3-5 Grams: Higher dose, it is a healthy dose that produces relaxing, discomfort, and nervousness effects.
- 7+ Grams: Anything over 7 grams is considerably high. It initiates heavy sedation and euphoria which is not safe for all, especially for beginners.
How do you measure grams? We recommend grabbing this gram measuring spoon on Amazon.
Kratom powder vs Kratom leaf
If there are fresh leaves possible, it is better to use them over powders. The effects show up as fast as 5-10 minutes after swallowing the leaves which are two times faster than powder and capsule form.
Using certain strains also affect the results. Higher strains like Maeng Da and red Bali show quicker and long-lasting results than soothing strains.
