While sweet and slightly sour passion flower fruit is enjoyed as a food, the bitter-tasting leaves of the plant are used in herbal health. Passion flower is mildly sedative, hypnotic, antispasmodic, anodyne, and hypotensive and is commonly prescribed for sleep complaints like insomnia or nervous disorders.
Anatomically, it is the heart and the liver that seem to benefit the most from this particular herb. The bitter leaves contain various harmine alkaloids, flavonoids, sterols, gums and sugars..
Passionflower leaves can be used to help support insomnia and various neurologic problems including central nervous system disorders, hysteria, neuralgia, shingles, anxiety and hypertension.
For nervousness and insomonia combine equal parts passion flower, skullcap, wood betony and half part each of licorice and ginger.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
