Dancing at Lughnasa
I chose the herbs in this tea blend for a variety of reasons. First of all, the smell of lemongrass and hyssop reminds me of a summer afternoon in the garden. It smells faintly of how I remember summer evenings visiting my grandparents in Idaho. Simple, nourishing meals eaten outside. Citronella candles fending off the mosquitoes. The dry heat of the day fading into the cool night as the sun sets.
Secondly, these plants are incredibly nourishing to the nervous system and promote this idea of slow medicine. Let your cup brew a little longer than usual. Stir in some honey. Then go sit outside in the fading light and wait for the fireflies to show up.
