Can I Eat Echinacea?

Good day, I made some tea from Echinacea but feel it to be a waste throwing away the plant material. I am sure if one can drink it you can eat it also, but just want to make sure. Thanks

The leaves and flowers are edible.
The remaining of the plant is most often used to make tinctures and other medicinal methods.
