Poppy tea is any herbal tea infusion brewed from poppy straw or seeds of several species of poppy. The species most commonly used for this purpose is Papaver somniferum , which produces opium as a natural defense against predators. In the live flower, opium is released when the surface of the bulb, called the seed pod, is pierced or scraped. For the purpose of the tea, dried pods are more commonly used than the pods of the live flower. The walls of the dried pods contain opiate alkaloids, primarily consisting of morphine.
Poppys as a painkiller
Top definition. There are many varieties of poppy pods and most that are sold by individuals are called - whether they actually are or not - papaver somniferum. This is because of the population that makes pt. While the 'wrong kind' of pod still has trace amounts of opiates in it and will do in a pinch such as through a season of shortage when people are forced to adapt to this, nothing compares to poppy tea made from actual papaver somniferum or opium poppy pods. AND, the wrong kind of pod, while it may work in quantity to some degree will NEVER produce the same results one gets from using the right kind of pod. People will buy the cheapest pods they can find yet if it takes 20 of those compared to the more expensive correct kind, it costs a whole lot more to use those cheap pods which don't even produce the desired effect.
