Vasilisa Tea - Limited Edition
This tea was especially dreamt up and blended for the SOLSTICE update of 2020. Nicole of Stomping Ground Herbals grew, harvested, and sourced from trusted farms and friends all of the ingredients for this tea. We based it on inspiration from the stories of Vasilisa and Baba Yaga, and my own image was of a tea that was deep and rooted, able to hold you in your darkest moments - while also providing a source of light, something to guide you out.
This tea is exactly that. With Stinging Nettle, Lemon Balm, Peppermint, Oatstraw, Motherwort, Cornflower + Calendula.
I have been drinking this tea every day for several weeks, and it’s hard to imagine not having this comforting and beautiful blend in my life now. Many of you follow Nicole already, but for those who don’t, she is an urban farmer and herbalist, working her own plant magic in Tennessee. Here are her words on this blend: .
“I created the Vasilisa tea blend using herbs and flowers found on my farm, and some sustainably sourced from other farms I trust. This blend of nettle, lemon balm, peppermint, oatstraw, motherwort, cornflower, and calendula is intending to be a guiding light in the darkness. I feel guided by the knowledge that was passed down to me from my great grandmother, Rose whom I worked alongside in the garden as a child. Tending this land deepens my ancestral connection and helps to pull out the knowledge that lies within my bones.” .
