Nothing Earth Shattering...

While out in the mountains west of Brisbane I stumble across a patch of native passionflower growing in some dry vine scrub. The vine has the usual 3 pronged leaf, a dull red flower with 5 long petals and 5 short petals, the fruit is about the size of a golf ball and green, however none where ripe on the vines I saw, they might get bigger and possibly turn yellow.
I took 12 flowers and let them dry out over 4 days or so on my desk. I then removed as much of the vine/stem parts and chopped roughly. After drying for another 2 days I had about a tablespoon and a half of dried matter.
I took the whole lot, added a teaspoon of green tea, a teaspoon of sugar and poured boiling water over it. The passionflower took a long time to settle to the bottom of the cup, by then it was cool enough to drink. The taste was surprisingly ok, I could taste the slight hint of the green parts I left around the base of the flowers, but it wasn't terrible, in fact quite pleasant. I will try removing more green parts next time to avoid the slight bitter taste.
The effects didn't take to long to appear, by the time I had drank 3 quarters of the cup. Mostly just a relaxed feeling, I found myself zoning out, staring at colorful images and clouds, I seemed to notice my hands a bit more. Shifting focus was weird and I preferred simply sitting still staring at colorful images or clouds floating by. Nothing earth shattering...
I decided the buzz wasn't enough and smoke 2 or 3 cones of cannabis (bowls as yanks call em) this gave me a very nice stoned feeling, slightly different to cannabis on its own. It took very little cannabis to get me to this point in comparison to my normal and regular smoking habits. The effects lasted for about 25 minutes and then quickly faded away.
