Passion Flower

0.15 $

The citizens of France, source country of the mysterious Passion Flower, are known to be a passionate bunch. From their poetry, to their zest for life and love of fine wines and food, the French practically wrote the book on passionate living.

Now, all that said, the Passion Flower isn’t named for the passionate people of France – that part is coincidence. Rather, and here is where it gets mysterious, Passion Flowers were named by the Spanish, way back in 1569 when they first stepped foot on the soil of what would come to be known as Peru. Seeking divine confirmation that their quest to conquer the new world was the right and just, the Spanish saw the passion flower as a symbol of Christ’s passion, and as confirmation of his approval of their exploration of South America. Strange, but true.
Nowadays, Passion Flowers are grown around the world but in our view, the finest specimens are grown in France. Herbalists and practitioners of traditional medicine in the country believe that a tisane made from the flower has sleep inducing qualities, making it an excellent before-bed beverage for insomniacs, or for people whose passion for life has led them to party on till the wee hours. A votre santé!

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS:

MILK SUGAR LEMON MINT
NO NO NO NO
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in 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 (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves or removing the tea 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 increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving into the pot. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)
