DOSE:
    Various (tea)

BODY WEIGHT: 225 lb


Wormwood 1oz, Yerba Mate 1oz, Catnip 0.5oz, Vervain 0.5oz, Yarrow 1oz, Yerba Santa 1oz, Passion Flower 1oz

1oz= one ounce, 0.5oz = one half ounce, all ground up herbs placed in pot of warm water for one hour before drinking.
(split between me and my girlfriend who weighs 105 pounds)

All herbs mixed into 7 measured cups of water and warmed for 60 minutes but not Boiled to preseve the chemicles that get damaged by extreme heat.

T+:00:00 Tea Time!
Strained and served one glass each to myself and my lady (measured 2 cups each). Very dark and BITTER BITTER BITTER! Wow ........nasty. Had to add splenda (3 packets) and some lemon juice to offset this horrible taste. Easier to chug down now but very bad aftertaste. This was to be expected but, wow.

T+00:15
Nothing to report, positive nor negative, no nausea wich is good!

T+00:30
Feel what I can only describe a blanket of relaxation covering me from the back of my head down to my feet. Body is beginning to feel a little heavy.

T+01:30
An 90 minutes have passed now, feeling relaxed but not really buzzed to much... she is hiccuping allot and I am to. I do feel like everything is great (well being). Perhaps I might drink the last two cups that are left.

T+2:00
Still very relaxed, perception of things is different, hard to explain.. reminds me of when I am woken up in the middle of the night and am trying to focus on my surroundings but cant.

T+3:00
just relaxed, not anything to special to speak of

Conclusion:
An ok relaxing time, nothing to really do unless I am bored or want to experiment. Not worth tasting the drink, ok relaxing feeling, a different feeling of perception for about 45 minutes.
