SHAMANISM + TEA
In the beginning, tea was used in ritual offerings, eaten as a vegetable, and consumed as medicine. Moving through the Chinese dynasties, tea evolved from physiological and spirit medicine, expanded into an art form, and became a drink celebrated by all social classes. From a shamanic perspective, tea displays a rich connection to Earth, her elements, meditation and divination, and is connected to shape shifting. Being the plant medicine of choice by many eastern monastic devotees and mystics, tea has had a significant role in bridging spirit and material, sleep and waking life, and more.
