Tea Tasting Series

Build your materia medica one intimate sensory experience at a time through monthly blind tea tastings. Meet other herbalists and plant people as we drill down into the group’s perceptions and experiences of a single plant medicine. We will then learn the energetics, history, physical effects, and tried-and-true formulations of the plant through an in-depth review of the monograph. Learn how to write your own monographs, or just experience the medicine, meet new friends, and enjoy two hours of restful self inquiry through sitting with a single plant. Additional organically grown or ethically wildcrafted medicines will be available for purchase to build your apothecary. Class is limited to 15 participants to keep this an intimate and restful experience.
