WHAT TO DO WITH THIS INFORMATION?

Tea is not just a refreshing drink. For thousands of years it has been used as a remedy for all sorts of ailments. To get the very best out of your tea you should know the basics of various tea varieties. However it doesn’t end there as you can enrich and add new qualities to your tea by the use of herbs, flowers or other edible organic products.

Virgo sign spans over so many stars that it is difficult to show in a standard image without it becoming a tiny.

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

Virgos are children of the nature and enjoy time spent in the great outdoors. Mercury is Virgos ruling planet and shows strongly on intellectual level. Another strong trait coming from Mercury is healing and it shows in healing properties of  Virgoan herbs like southernwood, valerian and fennel.

Fennel is even now commonly used in cooking while southernwood is an old herbal remedy, which was used as an antiseptic externally and as a digestive internally. Valerian is probably furthest as an ingredient one could use in a refreshing infusion as the smell resembles sweaty feet. Healthy as it may be I wouldn’t use it as a fragrance in my tea.

TREES AND FLOWERS

Trees bring some more options because Virgoan 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.

Forget-me-not, Alkanet and other flowers in which blue and yellow are combined also many yellow flowers can be considered to be Virgoan. 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 Virgoan herbs, which also include marjoram, caraway, balm and bittersweet. Aniseed can be used to ease digestion and Lavender eases all sorts of aches all fitting to the healing traits of Virgo.

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.
