If you are a Kratom enthusiast, you probably already know that Kratom powder is the most popular product form. Even though Kratom capsules are also readily available and popular, most buyers prefer Kratom powder as it is easy to experiment with.
One of the creative Kratom uses is to add it to your tea recipes. Even though new to the US and western countries, Kratom tea has been part of the local Southeast Asian culture for centuries. In fact, most of the Kratom tea recipes are sourced from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
However, you have to add Kratom in a teaspoon for Kratom recipes, which makes you wonder how many grams of Kratom you can use with each teaspoon. Maybe most of us don’t care much, but for perfectionists, it is an important question.
So let’s find the answer together.
How Much Kratom in a Teaspoon?
Let’s start with the basic calculations.
Kratom Powder Average
On average, one teaspoon contains 2 to 3 grams of Kratom powder, while one tablespoon contains 6 to 7 grams of Kratom powder.
The weight of the Kratom powder in one teaspoon depends on the density and how fine is the Kratom powder. For example, Bali and Malay Kratom are usually dense compared to Maeng Da Kratom.
Here is the answer to some of the popular Kratom strains.
How Much Kratom in a Teaspoon for the Bali Kratom?
Bali Kratom is among the most popular Kratom strains out there, both in powder and Kratom capsule form. Out of different color veins, Red Bali is the favorite Kratom strain of many Kratom enthusiasts.
It is natural many enthusiasts add Bali Kratom to their tea recipes. If you are one of them, here is the answer to the question.
One teaspoon of the Bali Kratom contains around 2.3 grams of Kratom powder. A tablespoon of the same strain contains around 6.2 grams of Kratom powder. If you want to buy Kratom in capsule form, you can expect 0.7 to 1 gram of Kratom powder in it.
How Much Kratom in a Teaspoon of Maeng Da Kratom?
Maeng Da Kratom is another popular Kratom strain, mostly available in green vein variation. It is also commonly added to Kratom tea.
One teaspoon of the Maeng Da Kratom contains around 2.6 grams of Kratom powder. A tablespoon of the same strain contains 7 grams of powder.
How Much Kratom in a Teaspoon for the Malay Kratom?
Malay Kratom is also popular among people who like the lower concentration of primary alkaloids and more balance between alkaloids and flavonoids.
One teaspoon of the Malay Kratom contains around 2.4 grams of Kratom powder. A tablespoon of the same strain contains 6.9 grams of powder.
What Do Kratom Enthusiasts Have to Say?
As expected, the answers varied. This is mostly because people follow different practices when using a teaspoon. Some create a mountain of powder when they use a teaspoon, while others keep an average powder level on the teaspoon. This obviously makes the difference for each person when it comes to precise quantity.
For example, according to one Reddit user, the teaspoon carries 2.2 to 2.5 grams of Kratom powder for him. For another, the precise weight was 3 grams. But this is not it; according to another Kratom enthusiast, his teaspoon can contain 3.8 to 4 grams of Kratom.
The end of the discussion is, when a teaspoon measurement can give you an average or an idea of the actual weight, to get a very precise amount, a better option is to use a weight scale.
We are sure you now have an idea about how many grams of Kratom you can get with a teaspoon, if not the precise answer. To get an accurate figure, we are afraid the teaspoon is not enough, as you need to buy a proper scale.
However, for those who want to make Kratom tea with Kratom powder, you can now have an idea of how much you are using with each teaspoon in grams. The actual weight also varies with each Kratom strain due to different densities and textures.
