A delicious and relaxing tea that resembles Chai
- 4 cups water
- 1-2 kratom tea bags (or a premade batch on kratom tea concentrate!)
- 1 cinnamon stick (no ground cinnamon)
- Fresh ginger root or ground ginger to taste
- Sweetener of your choice (such as honey, sugar, or Stevia) to taste
- Add your tea bags to about water and simmer (not boil) for 15 to 20 minutes
- Add cinnamon stick
- Let the drink simmer for at least another 10 to 15 minutes or until the original volume has reduced by about 50%
- Add sweetener and ginger to taste
Top Tree Tips:
I tried this recipe today because it’s a cold, cloudy day in Colorado, and I thought a warm, fall drink would be the perfect pick-me-up! I’ll start by saying I don’t love earthy or bitter tastes, so I’m all about a recipe that masks kratom’s natural flavor. This Cinnamon Ginger Kratom Tea recipe DEFINITELY does that. Plus you get the added health benefits of cinnamon (loaded with antioxidants, reduces inflammation) and ginger (improves digestion, relieves nausea).
I tinkered with my tea a little bit to improve the flavor, so I’ll skip my trial and error and get to where I netted out:
- 1 Red Maeng Da Kratom Tea Bag (but any of our strains would work)
- 1 cinnamon stick (I’d recommend taking it out after 10 minutes if you want a more mild taste)
- ⅛ tsp of ground ginger
- 1 packet of Truvia (or other sweetener)
- The juice of half a lemon*
*Bonus: an acid (like lemon juice) increases the amount of alkaloids absorbed, i.e. the kratom tea benefits.
It didn’t taste exactly like chai to me, but it did have a nice “spiced” flavor. And—to be fair—the only chai I’ve ever had was a Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks, so I might not even know what true chai tastes like.
It reminded me a little of mulled wine, so I’m going to swap out the ginger for a few cloves and star anise next time and see how that tastes. It also made my kitchen smell like a Christmas candle, which I loved!
