Making tea is a ritual that involves all the sacred elements – fire heats the water, we add herbs (earth), and the steam is the air. Taking a few moments out of our day to drink tea is an act of self care that allows us to slow down, commune with the plants, and nourish ourselves. This class will be sensory and hands on, helping us truly embody what we learn. In this class you will learn how to get the maximum medicinal benefits from the herbs. We will learn the two main methods for making tea: infusions and decoctions. Learning how to make infusions and decoctions is an essential skill for working with medicinal plants. Through sensory experiences and tea samples, we will learn about the various tastes of plants + plant energetics and why thats important for deciding which herbs to use. I will guide you through sensory tea meditations and we will tap into our intuition and the wisdom of the plants. You will walk away feeling empowered and inspired to make medicinal strength tea and to incorporate a tea drinking practice into your daily life. I will provide you with the tools, and then you can go home and practice. What to Expect: – Sensory tea meditation – Learn how to make herbal infusions and decoctions – An abundance of tea samples to engage your senses – Learn about tastes + plant energetics and why thats important for deciding which herbs to use and making tea blends – Take home herbs to use for self care tea rituals This class costs $40.
