So yesterday I finally decided to make some PPT tea and see how it was. Well, i found out it was very nice, except for the foul taste of the tea which I expected.
First I emptied the seeds out of 4 decent size pods and weighed. It came out to about the dose I was looking for, around 16G if I recall.
Then I threw the pods in the blender and turned them into powder.
Next step was to empty the power into the bottom of a small french press device.
I brought 2 cups of water to a boil next, and took kettle off of heat. I waited a minute or two to let the temperature drop a bit, perhaps I should have waited another few minutes.
Then I poured the hot water into the french press.
Let steep about 20 minutes. The french press does a good and easy job of extracting all of the water/liquid out. I was concerned about getting nauseous so I didn't want to accidentally ingest any grinds.
I put a bunch of sugar in the tea, didn't have any lemon juice handy.
The tea was indeed really nasty/foul just like is said. However, I was able to drink the 2 cups worth without too much effort.
I started feeling it within 45 minutes or so. Very nice and strong opiate buzz. Lasted a very long time too.
Overall this was very fun and I expect to do it again. (Although, not any time too soon, I don't want to be using this too often ) The only thing is the nasty nasty taste of the tea, but that is not too much of a hurdle.
