Today we bring you four such stand-out recipes, each custom-brewed to work with red vein kratom’s unique alkaloid profile. Regardless of your flavor or use preferences, we’re sure you’ll find that several of these teas are a delightful addition to your regular kratom routine.

If you’re eager to get straight to the recipes, you’ll find them at the bottom of this page. But before we get to that, let’s cover a few basics.

Can I make kratom tea with red kratom?

Yes! Virtually any strain of kratom can be used to make kratom tea that is both potent and delicious, and red vein kratom is no exception. If you find that red vein kratom is your preferred strain, then odds are that it will also be the perfect option for you to make a delicious and effective tea.

Much like kratom itself, kratom tea originated in Southeast Asia. In that region, red vein kratom has a long tradition of being brewed into potent and effective teas, with a variety of methods and purposes. It’s an easy, effective, and enjoyable way of taking your kratom — but the search for the perfect recipe will always come down to your own preference.

Which strains of Red Vein Kratom work best for brewing tea?

There is no hard and fast rule for determining which red vein kratom strains will work best for brewing tea. Users report very different perspectives on the issue, and it really is a matter of personal preference.

As a general rule of thumb, you should trust your own past experience. If you are a fan of a particular strain of red vein kratom powder or capsules, then the odds are that those same strains will be the perfect option for brewing your cup of delicious red vein kratom tea.

Kratom Spot offers some of the world’s best red vein kratom powder and capsules, all perfect for brewing delicious red vein kratom tea.

Of course, don’t be reluctant to branch out and experiment! If you’re looking to spice things up and try something new, consider our Red Vein Sample Pack, which allows you to try four of the world’s best red vein kratom strains.

Dosage for Red Kratom Tea: How much red vein kratom should I use?

As always with kratom use, proper dosage is one of the most important factors for ensuring you have a pleasant and enjoyable kratom tea experience. Unfortunately, there simply is no one-size-fits all answer. Proper dosage is dependent on a wide variety of factors, including your size and weight, your experience with and tolerance for kratom, and the particular strain of kratom that you choose to use.

In general, we always recommend that you start small. It’s always possible to up your dosage if you find that a small amount does not work as desired — but you can’t reduce the amount you’ve taken if you find your initial measurement was too high.


Only experience can teach you what will work for your own needs, so be sure to start small until you find what works best for you.

Which traditional tea leaves pair best with red kratom powder?

If you’re interested in making your red kratom leaf tea a bit more enjoyable, consider brewing it with a traditional tea. Either tea bags or loose-leaf tea will work well, although kratom tea bags might be something to look into.

When choosing a type of traditional tea to use with red vein kratom, virtually any tea you already enjoy will work fine. However, there are two considerations that are useful for guiding your choice: flavor and effects.

In terms of flavor, look for something to complement the distinctive, earthy taste of red kratom powder. We find that mint, masala chai, and chamomile teas pair particularly well with red kratom’s flavor. We’ve included easy and delicious recipes for each of these delightful pairings below.

When it comes to the desired effects of your tea, choose a traditional tea leaf that will complement those effects. Many users, for instance, decide to use red kratom tea at the end of a long day. If that is your goal, then a sleepy-time chamomile or a soothing mint may be ideal. However, if you are looking for a bit of a caffeinated and energizing boost from your kratom tea, consider a masala chai or other flavorful black tea.
