Kratom powder is the ground-up form of the kratom leaf. Kratom leaves are harvested in the rainforests of Southeast Asia. Countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and others are home to these tropical trees also known as Mitragyna Speciosa. Kratom trees are mostly found growing in the wild, and sometimes on private lands.

Being a natural herb, the kratom powder carries an earthy taste and is bitter for most users. Luckily, it’s really easy to mask the flavor by mixing kratom powder in various ways. 

How to mix kratom powder with water

If you are not looking to make elaborate kratom preparations, mixing kratom powder in water is the quickest method. Here are a few tips you can use to mix your kratom powder well with water.

Use warm water. Kratom powder is dense and warm water provides much better results when mixing.

Use a whisk or blender bottle. While stirring the powder with a spoon works, it is easier to mix your kratom powder with the help of a whisk or a blender bottle. This way, the powder mixes evenly and doesn’t separate from the water.

Add water first. To avoid unnecessary clumping of the kratom powder, make sure to add water or liquid first. Then mix your kratom in it. If you want to chase it down, a small amount would suffice quickly. For tea or kratom drinks, 6-8 oz works well.

Kratom Drink Mixes

Incorporating kratom powder in everyday beverages is another convenient way to take kratom. The flavorful taste of beverages masks the bitter taste and lets you enjoy the benefits of kratom according to your preferences.

We’ve put together a few easy drinks to get started with.

Mixing Kratom Powder with Citrus Drinks

Citrus bases are most popular as they can activate kratom’s alkaloids, breaking them down faster and enhancing the strength and duration of the effects. This makes citrus drinks great potentiators of kratom powder.

Grapefruit Juice – Bittersweet, rich in vitamins and antioxidants, mixing kratom powder with grapefruit juice is a great option.

Orange Juice – Orange juice is a breakfast staple and a great way to start your day with your kratom routine. For best results, freshly-squeezed oranges work wonders. To make an 8oz glass of orange juice, you will need about 4-5 oranges.

Lemonade – Who doesn’t love chilled lemonade on a hot summer day? To make a pitcher of lemonade, all you need is about 6 lemons, 2 cups of sugar, and 2 liters of water. Pour yourself a glass and mix your kratom powder until it’s well blended.

Other Kratom Juices

Pineapple Juice – A power-packed fruit, low in calories and rich in vitamins and minerals, pineapple juice is a delicious drink to mix your kratom with.

Mango Juice – Smooth and thick texture of the mango juice provides a tasteful base for kratom powder. Blending in the mango juice to make a perfect smoothie is a go-to choice.

Mixing Kratom Powder into Hot Beverages

The traditional way of blending kratom powder is by brewing kratom teas. To make kratom tea, all you need is hot water and the preferred ingredients for taste and flavor.

Kratom Mint Tea – Prepared with peppermint or spearmint, the mint flavor blends nicely with the earthy taste of kratom powder. Mint teas are caffeine-free and can also be taken in the evening to relax.

Kratom Lemon-Ginger Tea – When your morning isn’t off to the perfect start and you aren’t feeling at your best, brewing a cup of lemon-ginger tea can save the day. Simply simmer the boiling water with ginger and a slice of lemon. Add in kratom powder and mix thoroughly. Top it off with honey as a sweetener.

Chamomile Tea – Usually taken to relieve stress after a busy day, the savory herbs can add a nice touch to kratom’s earthy taste. Pair your evening serving of kratom powder for an easy touchdown.

At Super Speciosa, you can find pre-made herbal tea blends like Kratom Sleepytime Tea Blend or Kratom Evening Tea Blend. Enriched with flavorful ingredients, these blends are definitely a must-have for kratom tea lovers.

Soothing Kratom Milk – Take a warm cup of milk before bed and mix in your kratom powder while it simmers. Nut milk can also be substituted for dairy milk. Add in honey or stevia for a final touch.

Kratom Coffee – Kratom powder can also be mixed with your coffee to have enhanced focus during the day. Since both are stimulants, you might not feel any sedative effects. Choose decaf if you are worried about any overstimulation.

Mixing Kratom Powder with Smoothies

Take your kratom with greens or blend in other fruit and milk smoothies. Here’re some ideas:

Greens with kratom powder – If you like detox smoothies for a health boost, mixing in your kratom powder can be even more energizing. Simple blend in kale, cucumber, celery stalks, ginger, and lemon with your desired serving size of kratom powder.

Kratom powder with a protein shake – Get yourself an extra bit of zip and motivation to hit the gym. Kratom is a great pre-workout! Kratom powder can be mixed with your regular protein shake or powder for an added boost without the typical caffeine crash.

How To Store Your Kratom for Optimal Results

It is tempting to stock up on a good batch but you will need to follow some general guidelines to store your kratom for the best results.

  • Keep your kratom away from sunlight, moisture, or open air.
  • Store your kratom in multiple small batches with airtight containers.

How to know your kratom has expired? You can tell if your kratom is expired if it’s losing its vibrant green hues or its aroma. If you are feeling any effects, that may also mean your old kratom batch has lost its potency over time.

The Best Way to Mix Your Kratom Powder

There are plenty of ways to mix your kratom serving to enrich your health regimen without any added hassle. For stimulating effects, small serving sizes work best while larger serving sizes can be more relaxing. Super Speciosa uses a grading system to categorize its strains with Maeng Da being the most potent.

Choosing the Right Kratom Strain for Your Drink

Generally, red vein kratom strains are more relaxing while green and white are more stimulating. Drinking kratom on an empty stomach can also potentiate the effects of kratom.

These are just some of the recipes you can get started with to enhance your kratom experience. Whether you like kratom’s earthy taste or not, the ingredients can help mask the bitter flavors and create taste blends that are much more enjoyable than just taking kratom powder alone.
