Hello witches, and happy March!
When asked by fellow Canadians Vanessa and Amanda of Green Moon Apothecary to work with them on their Ostara box, I was thrilled! They're Torontonians who create Sabbat boxes with wonderful witchy items with a cannabis bend. There've been candles, crystal pipes, soap, just fantastic items that are great for self-care, and upping the magick in cannabis use.
I was super excited to hear from them, yet, not only did they want to include my Ostara tea, but create a brand new Green Moon tea that was inspired by the flavours (terpenes) found in cannabis!
I began with an article they wrote about terpenes in cannabis, then off to other research around the internet, because I just can't stop there! I was left to my own devices, and decided on an Iron Goddess oolong for the base of this tea.
I love Iron Goddess oolong, it's got this lovely flavour that's green/grassy, yet not bitter, and has this lovely, subtle floral and citrus magick happening.
To pair with the citrus especially, I decided to add lemongrass. A little hint of spearmint, and a good helping of mango flavour, and voila! This blend is likely going to be in heavy rotation over the summer (I think it would work well iced with a bit of lemon juice), and when I use cannabis. It's obviously a great way to make sure you don't get too dried out when you consume ;)
If you do happen to get one of these Ostara boxes, I hope you see why I'm excited about the Green Moon tea! And you'll be one of the lucky few who get to enjoy it as it isn't up in my shop!
I think the tea would pair wonderfully with an Ostara, or spring-themed guided meditation whilst high. There are a plethora of meditations around the internet, and if you don't want to have to do much work, you'll find them on Youtube. It's never a bad idea to create a special meditation that really focuses on some of the things that will be very important to you during the Ostara season.
I hope no matter how you spend Ostara, you enjoy yourself, and hopefully you'll also enjoy some bright sunshine!
