Countering Kratom bitterness?
    #3241106 - 10/11/04 01:22 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I enjoy the effects of Kratom very much, but have a hard time getting down the tea b/c of it's extreme bitterness. Does anyone have any helpful hints on how to make this easier on the taste buds?

Hmmm... Well, it's never TOO bitter for me, otherwise I'd do something to counter it also. I always drink it fairly quickly and while it's still hot so I don't have to suffer as much. So I don't actually know what works. My postulate would be that adding, sugar, other teas, juices, honey, and other things of that nature would help counter the bitter taste.

I add sugar, but it still doesn't mask it. I would add it to juice, but it's a lot of liquid to begin with, so I don't want to overdo it. Maybe I could boil it way down, then mix it with koolaid or something.

Yeah, that'd be something to try, although the taste would probably be just as strong, just a lesser quantity. You could also just mix powdered kratom with koolaid or something without making a tea first. And just drink it all down. That would be easier with the premium type because it's powdered better and there's a lot less to consume.

the energy drink "Monster" drowns out pretty much all tastes. i use it as chaser and have tried it with a few ethnos. i havnt tried kratom so i dotn know. but i think it will definatly work to get rid of the after taste. cant hurt to try anyway.

Try eating the leaf instead of making a tea. It goes down better with a little moisture. You could give it just enough juice or water to wet it.

From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

^ Right idea

I usually powder it, take a little less than a tablespoon per mouthful, and chase it with a warm beverage to aid absorption. As long as it doesn't get too wet in your mouth you won't taste it

Ok, how much do you usually take using this method?

I've learned a trick for all bitter substances. Reduce them down and drink them in strong coffee with sugar. Not sure why it works but coffee almost always masks the flavor.

Hold some kratom powder in your mouth. Wait until tongue becomes numb. Swallow and consume the rest.
Though for most people, bitterness tolerance increases with experience.

Is swallowing the powder whole as affective as making a tea from it? If so then the tea seems like a whole lot of extra work.

People that have eaten the whole powder will say it's more effective than the tea, you are correct the tea is a lot of bitter, extra work, try it both ways and give us your opinion :tongue2:
