If you couldn't tell from our 5 Questions Interview with her, we're big fans of Kim Krans and The Wild Unknown. And it's not just us- it's amazing how many people connect with her creations. Both her artwork and writing seem to resonate with a deeper, mystical part of ourselves. So of course, we were really excited when the idea of a tea blend collaboration got brought up! We always create specific intentions to inspire our blends, and after some brainstorming we all landed on this:
Reflect is a tea to gently guide you inwards. The blend is inspired by the energy of the moon, which in turn mirrors the energy of Autumn and Winter. In every sense of the word, we spend more time "inside" during these darker seasons. We curl up at home. We gather our energy back to ourselves. We restore- emotionally, spiritually and physically. It's a time to get still and listen to our intuition. The moon has always been associated with these more inner realms, as she rules over the dark and all its mysteries. She asks us to feel. She asks us to dream. She asks us to reflect what light we have seen.
We chose the herbs in Reflect to nourish the body and center the mind. The blend features sacred tulsi leaf, one of our favorite herbs for restoring vitality and calm. We've also added in other wellness-supporters, like oatstraw and astragalus, along with a touch of cinnamon and coriander seed to round out the flavor. The result is a beautiful blend to be enjoyed throughout the day, hopefully bringing a few needed moments of stillness and clarity.
You can find a limited number here in our shop.
May it inspire you to slow down, turn inward and reflect.
