This Magick of Tea instalment honours the upcoming Samhain and witch’s season with an embodied journey with dark teas, a lesser known tea classification that holds mystery, unparalleled potency, and wise softness. 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.
- Experience first-hand the role of decay and fermentation as agents of transformation in Tea and in life
- Learn / further practice channeling and other intuitive skills as we are filled with ‘cha qi’.
- Listen and speak with the Unseen within yourself or with a specific being you wish to be in touch with.
- Mimi will also be sharing mini spirit readings for each ticket holder.
- DC N3 Joy 2018 Shou Puer – A joyous, un-pretentious Pu Er has strong notes of brown sugar and a long lasting mouthfeel.
- Tea Horse Road Yiwu 2006 Shou Puer – Richly dark, this tea offers a graceful and grounding energy, perfect for rainy afternoons in the Pacific Northwest
- Koji Kurocha – A bogglingly sweet Japanese dark tea that is reminiscent of freshly baked bread and caramelized figs.

“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).
