Tea Throughout the Seasons

While I’ve been blending and drinking tea for a very long time, I recently became interested & curious about tea varietals…Which is a new world for me and for anyone going beyond the white, green & black teas.

Furthermore, and according to Chinese Medicine, you are supposed to drink certain teas at certain times of the year in order to attune the body (and its organs) with the elements & the seasons…Which makes sense to me. Each tea has a different energy, due to the terroir, how old the tree is, if it’s wild or cultivated, how the tea was dried/stored/fermented…And of course, you will like or dislike a tea depending on your own taste, needs, and “energetic compatibility”. You will not drink the same tea whether you are trying to meditate or focus on your work – you will have to choose your tea accordingly. I find the topic fascinating…
