A friend recently gifted me a tea mug with my zodiac sign. Because, like many of you, my brain opens about 17 windows when I’m interested in something – this led me down the path of wondering if zodiac signs affect our tea choices. Or if there is such a thing as zodiac tea.
Now there are companies that sell teas based on zodiac signs, but is there any merit to it? Probably not a lot, but for many people, the practice of selecting a tea based on their zodiac sign can be a fun and interesting way to explore new teas. Finding flavors that may align with your personality traits or astrological characteristics can be rewarding.
You may find that you resonate with the characteristics associated with their zodiac sign. And you may enjoy trying teas said to complement or enhance those traits. For fun, let’s dig into this a little deeper!
Zodiac Tea Properties
Certain herbs and plants have unique energetic properties. These may have a positive impact on our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. (This is a topic I explore thoroughly in my newest book GETTING BAKED: Everything you need to know about Hemp, CBD, and Medicinal Gardening.)
For example, chamomile tea is often associated with calming and soothing properties. Ginger tea is believed to have energizing and invigorating effects.
By selecting a tea based on your zodiac sign, you may be drawn to teas which promote balance, healing, and harmony. But can you find one specific to your unique astrological makeup?
What’s My Zodiac Tea?
Ultimately, selecting a tea based on your zodiac sign is a personal choice. There is no real scientific evidence to support the idea. However, exploring different flavors and benefits associated with different teas and herbs will broaden your tea experience.
With that in mind, I’ve put together some combinations after researching the subject. Explore the zodiac tea recommendations for each zodiac sign and be sure to have fun sipping your way through the journey!
