If you’re a tea drinker- especially the kind that works with loose-leaf herbal teas, I want to share a few bits of inspiration with you in this post.
First, tea is magic. The simple act of brewing herbal tea is a ritual in and of itself. It allows us to slow down, step into the present moment, and engage fully with what’s happening. For folks doing work with the plant spirits, this is a prime opportunity to connect more intentionally with the plants who offer their color, aroma, flavor, medicine, and magic to us with each sip of tea.
Because tea is ritual, it can be crafted into an act of true magic. The combination of elements via the bowl, water, steam, and heat along with the presence of whichever plant spirits are steeped in your cup makes for a gateway of magical potential… and the best part is that it’s incredibly easy to transform your everyday tea drinking process into a ritual where magic and transformation can happen.
