St. John's Wort?

I have - among the other standard herbs in my garden (mint, rosemary, thyme, oregano, etc.) that I use for cooking - some St. John's Wort.  On the little tag thingy that came with the plant telling you that it is St. John's Wort and that it likes to grow in sunny areas, it says that it can be used in teas.  My questions are these:

-How do you make St. John's Wort tea?
-What is it good for in terms of home remedies?
-Are there any associated health risks from drinking too much, drinking it while on certain medications, etc. that anyone is aware of?
-What does it taste like (bitter, sweet, etc.)?

I tried googling all of those, but it gave me a bunch of sites to buy the tea...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance.  =)

(P.S. - I am new and I am typically an English Breakfast tea drinker.)
