Black Tea with passion fruit flower from teadaStore.
Passiflora, known also as the passion flowers or passion vines, is a genus of about 550 species of flowering plants,
the type genus of the family Passifloraceae. They are mostly tendril-bearing vines, with some being shrubs or trees.
Passionfruit flowers are both edible and medicinal and may be used fresh or dried. Their tropical aroma and visual appeal far outweighs their minimal flavor, which is slightly bitter. As a relaxing tea they impart a mildly fruity flavor that is often complimented by chamomile, lemon balm, valerian root and St. John’s Wort. The flowers may also be made into a tincture by combining them with a high proof vodka and letting steep at room temperature for few weeks.
