What You Are Going To Need
In order to make the process go smoother and more efficiently you should gather some items and ingredients before beginning. The first thing that you are going to need is the Kratom. You will also need two liters of water, 1 large cooking pot, and some sort of stirring utensil for the pot, like a wooden spoon.
In addition to this, you will need a cheese cloth or mesh straining mechanism (something to allow water to pass through, while retaining the solids), one large pot to collect the tea, two fresh lemons, one to two liters of fruit juice for dilution purposes, and a timer that is capable of track 15-minute intervals.
The Cooking Process
If you use thirty grams of Kratom this recipe could yield anywhere from four to six cups of pretty potent tea. This should be enough for two to three individuals with an average tolerance level. If you are looking to produce a more potent yield or produce enough for an eight to ten person party, you might want to consider upping the Kratom to 100 grams. In addition to this, you would also have to up the water to five to seven liters and the fruit juice as well.
Step 1: To begin the process you want to place the large cooking pot on a stove burner. Go ahead and place in the thirty grams of Kratom with the two liters of water.
Step 2: Stir the mixture for twenty to thirty seconds or until the Kratom is evenly dispersed.
Step 3: Set the stove burner on low and give the mixture five minutes to start heating up.
Step 4: You want to make an incision right down the middle of the lemons and squeeze them in the pot. While squeezing out the juice you want to move your hand in a circular motion, trying to distribute the juice evenly throughout the pot.
Step 5: Let the mixture now cook for fifteen minutes and stir for three to five minutes after. Use the timer to keep track of the cooking time.
Step 6: Set the timer for another 15 minutes and occasionally stir.
Step 7: Repeat step 6.
Step 8: You can cook the Kratom for another 15 minutes with occasional stirring, but just remember that the Kratom will be stronger, however, it will produce a smaller yield due to the water evaporation.
Step 9: Turn off the burner and give the mixture a good ten minutes to cool. At this point you can go ahead and use your mesh or cheese cloth and drain the tea into a cup.
