Just about everyone will one day use a tea blend as a part of their craft. They are good for grounding, low energy, quick spells, and for using and sharing with friends and family. But what if you want to center your craft around tea? Where do you start? What do you need to know?
First, you need to know what tea witchcraft is, and what it isn’t. Tea witchcraft is a focused part of green witchcraft, and by default, you will also be a green witch if you chose to follow this specific path. With every tea spell, you call on the four elements: earth in the herbs, water to brew it, fire to heat it, and air in the steam. There is lore, superstitions, and correspondences you use just like in any other path. And most importantly, it isn’t a lesser form of magick. It has just as much power as sea or storm witchcraft, and you can use it for so many different purposes. Just because you focus on tea, doesn’t mean you don’t have a large breath of options.
If you wish to pursue a path focusing on tea, you need to know that it can get expensive. You will have to buy tea to complete a spell, after all. However, a great way to counter that, personalize, and improve your craft is to keep an herb or tea garden. This will help you always have the right herbs on hand, and it really brings in the green witch aspect. You’ll also need basic tea making materials that you probably already have in your home (pot or kettle, spoons, mugs, strainer for loose leaf tea, etc). And of course, your intent. Learning the correspondences of the herbs you’ll be using, the types of teas, the meaning of various bubbles that may occur, and tasseography (tea leaf reading) is also helpful.
As for those options I mentioned? Good deities to call on, if your craft calls for it, include Hestia, Greek goddess of the hearth, Lu Yu, Chinese saint of tea, and Huchi-Fuchi, Japanese goddess of the stove (The Japanese Tea Ceremony in part was made to honor her). Tea grounding is easy and I’ll describe the best way to do it in another post. Spells are easy to find, and easy to design yourself, and it’s a great way to start for witches still in the broom closet. It’s also a great way to start for mentally ill witches, as it takes very little energy to brew tea and tea can really improve your mental health (even without magick).
In conclusion, tea witchcraft is a super cool path of magick, and I hope this brings a bit more light to an often looked over path of witchcraft!
hi guys so my girlfriend’s name is blue sargent and this is why i love her
she accidentally became a vegetarian she just isn’t fond of meat so she eats so much yogurt and salads and totally packs fruit kebobs for lunch,,, what a nerd
she has an emergency sewing kit
henrietta high school legend says if you say “blue sargent” and spin around three times in the girls bathroom she’ll walk out of the stall and have the exact right button to replace the one that got ripped off your sweater
literal embodiment of “aesthetic or die”, she’d choose overheating in the middle of a virginia summer over ruining her look
“blue you look like you’re gonna pass out”
"i’m sorry, i misheard, i think you meant i look fucking great”
her guilty pleasure is 90′s boy bands she loves *nsync and backstreet boys and totally knows all the bad dance moves from the music videos
she’s tone deaf though can’t carry a tune to save her life but sings loud and proud anyway
she has a gap in her teeth just big enough to be noticeable, it whistles when she’s trying not to laugh
she’s a mug hoarder that brings tea up to her room but has like twelve mugs on her window sill from forgetting to bring them back down
her dad’s a fuckin woodland nymph so she’s ridiculously good with plants and her vegetable garden is the envy of the neighborhood
she’s a dog person she walks dogs as a job because she gets paid!!! to spend time with dogs!!! she loves it so much
once whipped out her switch on a boy twice her size for catcalling and scared the living daylights out of him,, attitude makes up for height and this girl’s got plenty of it
she’s not a bad student but she does get asked to leave class for sassing her teacher’s or telling them theyre wrong
“[insert historical figure] was gay”
“ms. sargent please don’t”
“history is so fucking gay you don’t understand-”
“please sit outside for the remainder of class”
*cue deep dramatic sigh from blue*
the teacher called maura, who laughed her ass off and hung up the phone
she was riding her bike home one day and was late because she got distracted talking to a homeless guy while waiting at an intersection and she bought him some mcdonalds and played cards with him
LOVES stargazing so much, persephone taught her the constellations when she was little
when she misses her she goes and sits under the stars with smelly tea, wearing a pair of persephone’s socks. she feels closer to her that way and it hurts a little less.
the gray man didn’t teach her how to fight, calla did.
by the time calla is done with her blue can flip ronan on his back
speaking of ronan him and blue are best friends i don’t make the rules these are just facts
she has dream hair clips that change color
she sewed pockets into all his jackets for chainsaw
theyre combat boot buddies
she is Tiny and rides on ronan’s back or shoulders
she has literally taken a running leap and jumped on his back while he was in the middle of a conversation and he didn’t falter in the slightest
he rips up clothes for her so she can get that Punk Aesthetic
she gives the best hugs on the planet she is a tiny lady but will pull you in so tight and you can rest your head on her soft hair,,, wow
her nail polish is always chipped it lasts like an hour tops
there’s always kids running around the house and she is so good with them, playing tag, teaching them crafts and cool friendship bracelet patterns and she wears all the ones they make for her
you think ronan cusses up a storm? blue could give him a run for his money the girl’s got a mouth like a sailor
loves yoga but only knows like 6 poses that she does over and over, calla judges her
“blue why are you laying on the ground”
“im doing yoga. its called corpse pose. leave me alone youre fucking up my zen.”
corpse pose is a lie it’s literally laying on the ground

These skull socks are finished. It was a lot, and I mean A LOT of ends to weave in. But I couldn’t carry my strands loosely enough to wrap them all the way around the sock. And I had strict instructions that the socks only have a skull, the rest needed to be black. My husband better wear these someday…
