With Summer Solstice approaching, in this installment of Magick of Tea, we’ll be exploring plant personhood through hands-on exercises and rituals to deepen plant-and-human kinship with seasonal flowers rooted in magick tradition, Chinese Taiwanese Tea traditions, and herbalism. We will work with the forms of “windows” and “mirrors” to invite co-presence, mutual recognition, and shapeshifting with a selection of specific flowers and plant allies.
Join animist-occultist and spirit communicator, Mimi Young of CEREMONIE for in-person and live-stream, intimate group sessions in the sanctuary of O5 TEA for a guided esoteric tea experience and immersive encounters with a curation of seasonal plants and their spirits.
This selection will be newly landed for the season, well-timed to celebrate the Summer Solstice:
- Osmanthus Oolong (Taiwan)
- Hile first flush from Nepal with remarkable floral notes in a hand-rolled tasting flight
- Whole-flower Hibiscus (Thailand)
Coupled with the Tea explorations, we will also be engaged in somatic (external) and spirit work with the following plants below, working with their archetypes, personhood, and lore:
- Rose (Bulgaria)
- Mugwort (Wild from Korea)
- Mandrake (Mediterranean Europe)
Attendees will have the opportunity to share plant encounters, experiences and questions with the group, and as with all Magick of Tea instalments, Mimi will also share mini spirit readings for each ticket holder (in-person and live-stream). Honouring the Solstice, the mini readings will provide general and personal forecasts for the Summer season.
This is an intimate, hybrid event, with 10 spots available for in-person, and 10 spots available via Zoom (with replay). All ticket-holders will receive a $20 voucher to spend towards any O5 tea purchase totalling over $100 (great for online attendees who can order tea from the tea menu ahead of time for the event! Please allow up to 10 – 14 days for teas to be shipped within North America. This curation of flowers and teas will be available for ordering June 1 onwards.)

“These Saturday morning offerings are so precious to me and have had such an impact ever since I started attending in the late Summer or early fall last year. You hold space in such a way that I imagine every person in the room feels welcomed and valued, I know I do.”
— Sarah Trivett
THE MAGICK OF TEA SERIES
In the beginning, Tea was used in ritual offerings, eaten as a vegetable, and drank as physiological and spirit medicine. From an animist perspective, Tea displays a rich connection to Earth, spirit communication, divination, and magick. Being the plant medicine of choice by many eastern mystics, Tea wields energy – visible and invisible – and helps one find their place in life.
Join animist-occultist and spirit communicator, Mimi Young of CEREMONIE for in-person and live-stream, intimate group sessions in the sanctuary of O5 TEA for a guided esoteric tea experience. Return to a sense of stillness, restore inner-regulation, and experience deep communion with Tea as a Plant Teacher and Spirit Ally.
In each Magick of Tea event, expect a weaving of:
- A curated fine tea tasting from O5’s collection, selected to showcase its flavourful and esoteric properties (in-person attendees only; online attendees will have a chance to pre-purchase)
- Channeled Tea messages / other divinatory messages for the group
- Animist-shamanic wisdom that corresponds to the key energy of the event
- A guided Tea Spell and/or other ritual
- Opportunities to share, (re)connect, and grow your spiritual family
This is an intimate hybrid event, with 10 spots available for in-person, and 10 spots available via Zoom (with replay).
