Passiflora incarnta, this Purple Passionflower has been dried and cut in preparation for tea making. Passionflower tea has traditionally been drunk providing numerous health benefits. It has been taken for insomnia, anxiety, adjustment disorders, indigestion, fibromyalgia, muscle cramps, relieving symptoms related to narcotic drug withdrawal, premenstrual symptoms and cramps, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, irregular heartbeats, and palpitations. It may have possible contra-interactions with prescribed Sedatives, Anticoagulants and Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, so take professional advice. I brewed this tea in the usual way 5 minutes with boiling water. The aroma was quite vegetal, and tastes somewhat like a light soup stock, quite pleasant and drinkable.
It goes without saying that if you're pregnant (or are under the doc for anything) caution should be exercised with herbal decoctions.
