One aspect of holistic health is the basic body nature, which is different from person to person. We react differently when for example the same food is given to a group of people. This tea series presents astrology as a reference to your choice of enriching your tea experience with natural additives. The base for several suggestions here comes from the long astrology tradition and should be considered as suggestions not medical information but I believe many of you will find suggested herbs very suitable to your palate when mixed with your favorite tea.

HERBS

Aquarius is strangely positioned in the world of herbs as they are well matched with plants that have sharp and unusual flavours. It is very difficult to point out anything that could pass as a drink. Peppers might be used to bring in the element of fire into very strong teas – the ones with smoky or earth taste.

TREES AND FLOWERS

Trees bring some more options for Aquariuses because their trees include all trees that bear fruits. We all know that many fruits are used to give some extra flavour for teas, especially at the lower price range of the market. Also all-fruit infusions are very popular nowadays and Aquarius can well benefit from those. One of the most interesting options is Elderberry, which is poisonous unless seeds are not removed from the berries.

HERBS

Cancer with its imaginary claws.

Cow parsley and Bishop’s weed are two common herbs, which are associated with Cancer sign. Both happen to have white flowers and white is also the color of Cancer. While Cow parsley and Bishop’s weed are edible and quite healthy they don’t produce a nice cup of tea. However white rose is something that does make good tea.

TREES AND FLOWERS

White rose’s petals do not have as strong taste as red rose’s petals so it blends the best with light teas and in a big portion. Naturally all white rose infusion can be made too.

Sapped trees belong under Cancer and gives great options for sweetening drinks. Maple syrup can be used to sweeten iced tea drinks and birch tree, which also is a tree with sap has leaves, which have a delicate fragrant taste and can be made into an infusion on their own or mixed with some Oolong tea.

HERBS

Mint is the herb which is most often associated with Librans. Mint is well known for its digestive and antiseptic qualities and this really suits well for Librans as hungry sweet tooth tends to be one of their less-wanted qualities.

Dried Nordic berry fruits can be also be counted into herb-like foodstuffs, which have some health improving qualities. Especially forest berries are good for Libran diet as they provide ample amount of vitamins and balance blood sugar to keep that sweet tooth calm.

TREES AND FLOWERS

It is only apple tree that has something edible on offer for Libra. No matter, dried apple is often in the mix with infusions and teas. Do you know something better than freshly baked apple pie with some vanilla ice cream accompanied with a cup of tea or coffee?

Taurus and Libra share rulership with Venus and therefore have similar associations towards plants and especially flowers. Rose is the strongest and the most widely used herbal flower on the list and it can often be found mixed in to teas and infusions. Powdered rose is especially tempting in baking as it gives natural fragrance to any sweets especially on dry cakes… but maybe I should stop tempting that good ol’ sweet tooth.

HERBS

Bittersweet is one of the herbs associated with Geminians. The plant is beautiful to watch and dangerous to eat. Although it has been used as a herbal medicine it is better to steer away from it as a herbal tea ingredient.

Luckily this is not the only Geminian herb in town as they also include aniseed, marjoram AKA oregano, caraway and balm. These are all herbs with strong taste and commonly found in kitchen use. Aniseed has probably the widest range of uses and if used sparingly makes a nice addition for a black tea blend.

TREES AND FLOWERS

Trees bring some more options because Geminian trees include all trees that bear nuts. I’d say that nuts can be used to give some flavor for some selected teas, for example smoky Lapsang Souchong could benefit from a hint of walnut.

Lily-of-the-valley, Lavender and Myrtle are flowers, which are usually connected with Geminians. Lavender is the most famous of the lot and it is being used in all sorts of edible and inedible products and can be combined with various tea blends.

ANISEED AND LAVENDER – JUST WHAT DOCTOR ORDERED

Aniseed and Lavender rise above other Geminian herbs. Aniseed can be used to ease digestion and Lavender eases all sorts of aches. Looks like Gemini is rather troubled astrological sign. To all who are somewhat familiar with astrology the duality of these plant does look pretty Geminian. I think that astrological tradition has this one mapped correctly.
