For many, a simple cup of tea is the perfect way to start your day — while others prefer to start their day with a cup of weed-infused tea. Believe it or not, cannabis and tea make a delicious pair because most teas already have a naturally herbal flavor profile. Best of all? It really doesn’t matter what kind of tea or weed you use to make one of these unforgettable drinks at home.
Whether you like to start your day with a spicy cup of chai tea or wind down for the night with a mug of soothing mint tea, read on to discover everything you need to know about how to make cannabis-infused tea.
What You Need To Make Weed Tea
Before you can start crafting your cannabis tea, check the kitchen to make sure you have all the necessary ingredients. If you have a 420-friendly kitchen, you likely already have all of the following goodies right at your fingertips:
As we mentioned above, any tea will do the trick, but we suggest selecting a tea that is strong enough to stand up the cannabis flavor. For example, the soft notes of jasmine tea might be easily overpowered while a robust Earl Grey tea will have no problem shining.
Milk of Your Choosing
This recipe is closer to the latte family than a plain old cup of tea so milk gives it that creamy, frothy feel. If you just want a simple mug of tea without all the bells and whistles, you can simply mix a cannabis tincture or other infusion directly into your tea. But this recipe is going to take things up a notch.
Cannabis-infused Coconut Oil
It’s always good to have some cannabis-infused coconut oil on hand especially if you’re a tea or coffee drinker. It also helps give that silky smooth feel, latte-esque texture in your drinks and is a seamless way to infuse some cannabis into your routine. To make it, you simply do it the exact same way as cannabutter.
Some people like sugar, others don’t. So while we do recommend a hint of sweetness, it’s completely up to you.
Depending on the type of tea you’re going to make, you may want to go the extra mile and top it off with some complementary garnishes. Think ingredients like flaked sea salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, or maybe even some chocolate chips.
