Fairy Tea

This article was written by Ann Moura
posted under Pagan

Combine in a teapot:

3 tsp black tea
1/2 tsp chamomile
1 tsp dandelion rood
1/2 tsp elder flower
1/2 tsp hops
1/2 tsp mugwort
1/2 tsp raspberry leaf
1 1/2 tsp rose hips

saying as you drop the herbs into the pot or filter basket:
Black for power; apple of night, root of the sun, Lady’s blessing, Lord’s leap for joy, then between the worlds to Fairy bramble, with token of love, brewed to bring Fair Ones close to me.
If not using an automatic tea maker, boil water in a kettle and add to a teapot that was warmed with a bit of hot water before the tea leaves and herbs were put in. Let steep for five minutes. Warm a second teapot by swirling inside it more hot water from the kettle. Pour out the water and strain the brewed tea into this warmed pot. Add to taste in your teacup whatever sweetener and milk you like. You may want to have something to eat such as cookies or tea biscuits (Scottish shortbread is very good and can be found in most supermarkets), or other tea snack. This can be part of your Cakes and Wine ritual toward the end of your spellwork, or you can use it to set the mood prior to your Faerie magics.
