I'm experienced with t&w powdered kratom but not with crushed leaf. I bought a kilo of Red Vein Remahan crushed leaf from a reliable vendor and it doesn't smell at all like powdered kratom.
Is this typical? I'm having visions of it being swept up from some dirty floor or something. Also, if anyone has good advice on making tea with it, I'd be grateful. There is a lot of conflicting info on making tea. I'm attaching a photo if that helps. Thanks!

Anyway, as far as the difference in smell, the proposed hypotheses just don't make sense to me. I don't know why the further pulverizing into a powder would release elements that are not smelled in the crushed leaves. As an example, I use coffee beans, which apparently are related to kratom.
Coffee beans smell like coffee. Ground coffee smells like coffee. Brewed coffee smells like coffee.
Maybe you guys are right that there are additional components released with the further grinding, but it just doesn't make sense to me. Just my $.02, not trying to pick a fight.
The thing that separates us from other Kratom Forums is that we're not going to turn away members or vendors due to special interests as they do at the other popular forums. Although our main focus here is to build a Kratom Community with up to date and accurate industry information, we do allow vendor reviews and marketing in the appropriate locations. This is a place to share ideas, information and to advocate for this amazing leaf. We welcome newcomers to join and start learning today.
