High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Poppy tea is a tea brewed from poppy straw or seeds of several species of poppy. The species most commonly used for this purpose is the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum. The tea is consumed for its narcotic, analgesic, anti-diarrhoeal, and/or psychoactive effects. This tea is depicted both in Asian literature and Western literature, such as in opium dens. Reputed modern users of poppy-head decoctions including poppy tea for analgesia include Otto von Bismarck, Charles Darwin, and Charles Dickens. It can also be used in small amounts as an analgesic, anti-diarrhoeal, and sedative for many mammals and birds. In some places, preparation of tea may be preferred to opium as the latex of the plant (itself the primary component of opium) is illegal. In the Netherlands, all parts of Papaver somniferum after harvesting (except for the seeds) are illegal by law, as they are List I drugs of the Opium Law. Because of use for decorative purposes, the trade in, and possession of dried Papaver Somniferum is not actively prosecuted.
