☕ Tea: 1 teaspoon of dried flowers are poured with 1/4 liter of boiling water and then strained after a short time.

The fruit of Passiflora edulis, the so-called passion fruit, has no calming properties. But it tastes great in drinks and yogurt.

The Passionflower grows up to 10 meters long and forms long, thin, climbing stems with deeply three-lobed, alternately arranged leaves. The approximately 8 centimeter large stalked flowers have five stamens and three fused stigma styles.
