What is Moon Tea?
Moon tea is similar to “sun tea” where you leave your jar of herbs in the sun for a few hours except that for this cold infusion, you’ll be leaving your “tea” in the light of a full moon.
I love to use this as a full moon ritual to bring sacred feminine energy to the tea, especially during a full moon.
Why is Moon Tea So Powerful?
The full moon is round and completely illuminated. It represents completion, the height of power, the realization of your desires and the peak of clarity.
The Moon Goddess is an important deity in many cultures around the world where they form a central role in mythology. The moon is associated with the divine feminine as in many tribal societies the feminine cycles were linked to the phases of the moon.
Making moon tea during the full moon can take on the form of a sacred ritual that reminds us that we all have an inner goddess that’s powerful, capable, amazing and beautiful.
It is a time to celebrate your growth, take note of what progress you have made and to reflect on how far you have come.
