The full moon in winter resonates with element of fire. This connects us to our internal flame, giving rise to our fundamental needs and unique desires. This is a good time to release any negative thoughts concerning money and opening up to attracting abundance. The energy from the full moon lasts for 7 days.
This is a special blend created by Joyce specifically for the winter full moon. If you do full moon retreats this is the perfect addition. You can purchase a tea bag for each guest or prepare ahead of time, see below for brewing tips. For groups larger then 8 contact for pricing.

Determine how much tea you want to make, 1 cup = 1 tea bag, 1/2 gallon = 4 tea bags, gallon = 8 tea bags. Never use a microwave to heat water as it removes the energy from the water, in a pot add water, filter if possible, add sugar, if desired and bring to a rolling boil. Remove the pot from the burner, either poor into a glass jar, for 1 cup and add the tea bag and let it sit for at least 5 minutes, or place tea bags in the pot. If making more than 1 cup I suggested letting the tea bags sit for 15 minutes for a 1/2 gallon and 30 minutes for a gallon. This allows time for the medicinal properties of the tea to be absorbed by the water.
There are no strings on the bags, so what I do is use a strainer to remove the bags and a spoon to push down to release access water. Poor into a glass container, put a light cloth on top and seal with twine or a rubber band. I like to prepare this the day of the full moon and at night set it out to absorb the moon’s energy. It does not have to be in the direct moon light, be sure it is some place where it will not be disturbed by our furry forest friends or pets.
You can leave it out longer to absorb the energy from the sun or bring it in, in the morning. Store in glass containers and refrigerate, the tea can be heated up in a pot or drank cold. When drinking think of what you want and drink with that intention. If you have a ritual this tea is a perfect addition, you can always use your own intuition to come up with a simple new moon ritual. You could drink the tea, light a toxic free candle and do a meditation or just quietly while holding your intention and sipping on the tea. I would love to hear how you are using this tea.
This tea blend has a light taste and is pleasurably aromatic.
