I've made alcohol tinctures and they seem to be more sedating than tea. None of the energetic properties. That's a no go for me.
I used to do capsules but I had a few instances where I took enough to get sick and puke. Now I can't bear the thought of capsules. I make yogurt smoothies for my Kratom. I also used to use apple sauce to good effect. That was back when I did 5grams at a time. Now I do 7-10 grams a day. I see tea as needlessly complicated. You'd want to cover up the taste anyways. And who knows how much gets wasted in tea. I eat it and know it's all going in my gut.
