Is Kratom Tea Stronger Than Kratom Powder? A Complete Guide

We all know there is more than one way to ingest Kratom. But did you know that depending on your desired ingestion method, you could be weakening the potency of Kratom? Thereby diminishing its effect on your body? in this article, we are going to be looking into the question “is Kratom tea stronger than powder?” and showing you the best ways to consume your Kratom. 


Kratom powder, derived from the leaves of the Kratom tree, also known as Mitragyna speciosa, is native to Southeast Asia. It has enjoyed a rise in popularity in the U.S over the last few years. Kratom, famed for the effect it has on the opioid receptors it has in the brain, has multiple active compounds. These alkaloids trigger feelings of sedation, pleasure, and discomfort reduction in the body. 

Making Kratom Tea

Making Kratom tea is very simple and there are numerous methods of making the perfect tea that suits your needs. Our go-to method however is to simply boil water and pour it into a cup, add some Kratom powder or leaves and let it sit in the hot water for a few minutes. You could choose to add some sweetener till it tastes like something you would enjoy and drink. With Kratom, however, we’ve found that its bitter tastes tend to grow on you after a period meaning you might not need the sweetener after all. 

Like all other tea, tea time can also be a relaxing ritual for you. Making tea is about being patient and playing around with recipes could help you unlock a combination of Kratom you never knew was right for you! 

Kratom Tea v Toss & Wash

Today, the benefits of using Kratom has been balanced against the negative effects of simply consuming the leaves. In its native Thailand, Kratom leaves are chewed quickly or drank as a tea. The most important thing is the Kratom getting into the body.

The main difference between drinking Kratom tea and toss & wash is where the plant matter ultimately ends up. Done right, these methods do the job of getting the desirable alkaloids into your body, but with tea, the leaf could up be discarded or composted. 

Another benefit of drinking Kratom tea is that you have already done the work of your stomach by breaking down alkaloids that could be found in the Kratom leaf.  And when your body has an easier job processing something, it often means you experience the benefits sooner!


Is Kratom Tea Stronger Than Powder?

Finally, there is no clear difference between drinking Kratom tea or enjoying the toss & wash method with Kratom powder. If brewed properly, you will be able to retain the potency of the kratom leaves and enjoy the full effects. The mistake most people make with Kratom tea is by over brewing their Kratom. Doing this causes the Kratom to lose its potency and weakens the effect it has on your body. It is also important to add that adding extra items like citrus or sugar to your Kratom tea has no adverse effects on its potency.
