I recently purchased a box of 100 bags of coca tea. The box claims each bag contains ~1g of coca leaf, but I have not verified this with a digital scale yet.
After a few trials with brewing tea in the normal fashion, I decided to try making an alcoholic beverage containing the active ingredients found in coca leaves. In retrospect I have found that both concoctions provide a nice, mild stimulation with a mood lift...the alcoholic version is slightly stronger and provides a better emotional boost, but even just the regular tea is a nice change of pace from my normal double espressos on occasion.
My recipe is as follows:
-11 shots of 80 proof vodka (the odd shot accommodates for liquid trapped in teabags when they are discarded)
Put the ingredients in an airtight glass container. I used an unplugged blender with an airtight lid, a large mason jar or widemouthed bottle may work better. Swirling occasionally, I let the bags macerate overnight for about 12 hours before removing the teabags. I did not squeeze out the excess, but it perhaps would have made it stronger.
One shot contains roughly two bags worth of tea, my normal dosage when consumed as an herbal tea. One shot put in a large glass of coca cola actually tastes good, but if one tries drinking the shot on its own it will likely be unpleasantly concentrated. I can't drink it straight. Sipping it will numb my lips, however.
For my first try I had a buddy come over and drink some with me, watch TV and smoke a bowl of middies. We each had two drinks, so we had two shots per person. Both of us noted cocaine-like stimulation just short of the effect of doing a large bump. Less intense but more prolonged....Conversation was lively to the point that we talked more than we watched TV, though it was on for a few hours. The addition of a small amount of extra alcohol and some marijuana made it extremely pleasant, in fact I would say I prefer this to coffee, cocaine, methylphenidate or amphetamines.
Just about the perfect stimulant...energy without jitters, mood lift without a big crash...
This is strong, but not too strong, it has potential for abuse but its nowhere near the addictive potential of powdered, insufflated cocaine. I would consider using this method over snorting coke or popping pills if I wanted a little energy, but I would still say to use caution as any drug is addictive.
