Kats Botanicals crushed leaf Kratom is unique because the whole red vein leaf is used. If you’re a tea drinker, crushed leaf has very distinctive alkaloid properties. In fact, trials have suggested crushed leaf makes a more potent tea than the powder. These crushed leaves are dried to make our popular and potent Green Sunda as well. Kats Botanicals provides a great selection of crushed leaf Kratom from our sister farms from different regions.
