Thermogenic by nature. Teas that wake up the body and engage the senses with a warmth that feels intimate. May also provoke contemplation, thought, and bring us to the present.


For those who seek a caffeine-free companion. Not stimulating but not boring either. The perfect nightcap. The ideal iced tea. The favored sip of hope past 5.


Teas that light the spark of joy. Feel golden, bright, inspiring, and warm with energy. In contrast with 'Warming' teas, 'Uplifting' teas have an electricity. In senchas, it may feel like a savory zing. In white teas, it can feel citrus-y. Most teas in this category can make the brain buzz.



Teas with the power to communicate with our body's minerals and magnetize them to Earth's core, grounding us. Pair these with a book that smells like aged, tattered paper and oak. Alternatively, brew outside in the elements of your choosing, crossed-legged, and look to the sky for the answers you seek.


Seek clarity in these teas. It is said when we drink tea, we consume its spirit. Ask this question: what can spirit teach me? Contemplate. Sip. Find the answer in the time that passes, beginning when still water comes to boil and lastly, to the pouring of tea in one's cup.
