Once harvested and dried, these leaves can be consumed in multiple ways. Here are our top three ways to prepare kratom. (1) Kratom Tea Loose leaf kratom is perhaps the oldest form of using kratom. Ancient peoples used to dry and crush the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa tree. Then, they'd chew it raw or brew it into a potent tea. Today, many companies sell crushed leaf kratom. While you can chew crushed leaf kratom, we recommend making kratom tea instead. To make kratom tea, simply place crushed leaf kratom into near-boiling water. Wait 20 minutes before straining out the leaves. You can then add flavorings like sugar, honey, or even a flavored syrup to mask strains with a naturally bitter flavor. (2) Kratom Powder Loose leaf kratom may be the oldest form of using this supplement but kratom powder is by far the most popular. Kratom powder is typically less expensive. It's also extremely versatile. With kratom powder, you can:
- Add it to food
- Brew it into tea
- Mix up a kratom "shot"
