Before we begin our adventure into the realm of psychedelic teas, we must mention: some of the following substances can be highly toxic.

Do your research, speak with your local physician, and decide for yourself if you wish to consume these substances.

It's definitely recommended to have a “trip sitter” when drinking psychedelic teas, especially for your first time. Now, with that out of the way, let us present the following tea recipes to help you have an elegant psychedelic experience. This Tea & Herb Infuser from Zamnesia has you covered.

Blue Lotus

Blue lotus (Nymphaea caerulea) is a flower used in ancient Egypt during spiritual rituals. This flower has been depicted in hieroglyphics detailing various parties and sex events. The effects induced from drinking this visually-appealing specimen will resemble psychedelic and sedative vibes. Dreamlike states and kaleidoscopic thoughts may present themselves during the blue lotus experience. You must be aware that different blue lotus products have different potencies; proceed with caution.

Although you can smoke blue lotus or soak this dried flower in wine, making tea from the mystical flower is a better option in terms of optimising its effects. The recipe is relatively simple. Boil 1-2 cups of water, insert the recommended amount of blue lotus written on the packaging, wait for approximately 20min, and your blue lotus tea is ready to get you psychedelic. The effects will creep-up after around 30min, but it might take longer; be patient before taking a refill.


Hawaiian Baby Woodrose

Hawaiian baby woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) is a vine with heart-shaped leaves and furry seeds, which contain the psychoactive substance LSA.

It is one of Mother Nature's psychedelics, and an easy to come by product that will have its consumer on a mental voyage. Feelings of euphoria are not uncommon, and psychonauts who venture into the world of Hawaiian baby woodrose often report audiovisual alterations, profound mental awareness, and a different experience of space and time. Quite the trip.

Before describing the extraction process, it's good to understand that if this substance is taken in too high of a dose, you can experience effects. Vomiting, feeling like your body is exploding, and seeing your existence being split atom by atom has been experienced after consuming too much Hawaiian baby woodrose. If you decide to consume this substance, you must be cautious and do the necessary research.

Normally, the beginner dose is around 1-4 seeds. The seeds should be crushed into a powder and kept away from sunlight. The powder should then be mixed with cold water and placed in the fridge or freezer for 1-2 hours. Make sure to give it a stir every 15min or so. The mix should then be filtered through a cheesecloth into a glass to separate the liquid from the solids. The contents is then consumed.


Top 10 Magic Truffles

Psychedelic mushrooms are one of the most popular psychoactive substances known to veteran trippers. Magic truffles have emerged quite recently when magic mushrooms become illegal in Holland. That's because magic truffles grow underground, so they don't fall victim to the same legal trappings as magic mushrooms. The psychedelic ingredients present in these fungi are psilocybin or psilocin, which generate some profound psychedelic experiences.

Teas are a great option for magic mushrooms and truffles, because eating them can be hard to digest. There are different recipes for this tea; you can make honey truffle tea, lemon truffle elixir, and ginger twist tea. Check out the Zamnesia's mushroom tea recipes here.


Mescaline Cacti

Mescaline is another popular psychedelic substance, which is extracted from Peyote and San Pedro cacti. Mescaline produces very visual and mental psychedelic experiences, and can be super potent depending on the dose. The taste of the extract is extremely bitter and nausea-inducing. Many vomit during the beginning of the trip, after which they see light radiating from people, and experience intense euphoria vibrating through the body.

The trip can last for around 6-15 hours depending on dose and the individual. Making mescaline tea involves slicing the cacti, making it into pulp, letting it simmer for around 4-5 hours, then straining it. Check out the more detailed instructions here.



Kanna should not be confused with “canna”, which refers to cannabis. Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) is a beautiful white flower that is used to induce relaxing experiences. Kanna is actually not hallucinogenic. This plant has been used for hundreds of years in South Africa. After consumption, you may experience improvements in sleep and focus, as well as decreased anxiety. Uplifting feelings of euphoria and increased energy have also been reported as kanna is considered to have both sedative and stimulant properties.

On the other hand, the negative effects range from headaches and appetite reduction to feelings of indifference. When ingested, the effects last for around 3-6 hours; when smoked, for around 1-2 hours. Some believe that kanna can accentuate the effects of cannabis. Check out our kanna tea recipe.


How To Make A Cannabis Tea

Cannabis tea is a classy way to unwind after a long day at work. Cannabis contains the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, among various other compounds like CBD, CBN, and flavoursome terpenes. By the way, the term "tea" is old-school slang for cannabis. But ingesting cannabis produces much stronger effects than smoking it, because THC passes through the liver, which turns into 11-hydroxy-THC.

This is considered to be much more potent, and can create some super cool psychedelic vibes. Just make sure not to consume too much, otherwise you’ll have a bad time. To turn cannabis into a drinkable format, you must decarboxylate the weed for it to have any effects.

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is known as a stimulant (if consumed at lower doses), sedative (at higher doses), and intoxicant. The effects vary depending on the user, dosage, and species of this plant. The part we use to make tea comes from the dried and ground leaves, which derive from a 3-20m tall kratom tree. This tree runs in the same family as coffee shrubs. It’s native to Southeast Asia, where it has been used as a traditional medicine for hundreds of years.

Pain relief and euphoria can be experienced from kratom, as well as negative effects such as mild depression and constipation. 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine are the chemicals which produce the sedating effects. A typical dosage varies from 1-6 grams depending on the person. When consumed in larger amounts, you may experience nausea and super sedating effects. The taste is not desirable, and should be chased with something sweet. Check out the tea recipe here.


Now that you’ve received some instructions and ideas for making these teas, make sure to conduct solid research about the substances/dosages, and contact your local physician when in doubt. May your teas deliver delicious and enlightening experiences.
