Realistic and Movie Like Dreams

2 cups oral Vervain (tea)


I have one of those boring government jobs in the middle of a desert you've never heard of. So to make things interesting in the afternoons i'm experimenting with herbal tea.

Vervain is not drank for the taste, it has a bitter grassy flavor.

I put about 1.5 teaspoons of Vervain in a tea infuser then filled a mug with boiling water and let sit for about 10 mins.

Nothing happened after about 30 mins so I brewed a second but had to add half a lemon to make it taste at least drinkable.

After another 30 mins I felt relaxed and lightened, similar effects as Damiana tea but much more subtle.

1 hour later and I feel very sleepy and unmotivated which is unusual for me.

I went to bed and had some of the most realistic and movie like dreams I've ever had. I really enjoyed the effects even if the taste is horrible.
