Through three distinct dark teas selected by O5 Tea, known for their rich, earthy flavours and unique fermentations processes, possess a spiritual and magickal dimension that extends beyond their taste. Often associated with the concept of ‘cha qi,’ an elusive energy or life force believed to be present in quality dark teas that make it suitable for general intuition, divination, and spellwork. As intuitives, witches, and spirit workers can relate with Tea as much more than just beverages, and instead, as living portals to connect with the Unseen, to harness the theme of decay with more ease and wonderment.

“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


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.
