It takes longer to steep kratom tea than it takes to steep other herbal teas or black tea. A regular ceramic mug may not keep water hot for long enough to properly steep your kratom tea bags.
The best way to steep kratom tea is to use an insulated thermos or brew your tea on the stove, but if that’s not an option, brewing kratom tea in an insulated mug (one with double-walled glass or a tight-fitting lid) is a great option!
1-2 kratom tea bags
Optional for stronger tea: 1-2 tsp lemon or lime juice
Boil water using any method you prefer (electric kettle, coffee maker, microwave).
While water is boiling, add tea bags and lemon or lime juice (if using) to your insulated mug.
Pour boiling water over tea bags and cover your mug. Steep for 15-25 minutes, depending upon desired strength and flavor.
The longer you brew, the stronger your tea will be.
Uncover and remove kratom tea bags using a spoon. Sweeten to taste, and add any desired flavors or creamer – creamer is best when not using any citrus.
You can typically rebrew your kratom tea bags to make a slightly weaker second mugful of tea – the strength of this second brew will depend upon the length & strength of your initial brew.
