Zodiac Signs & Tea: How They Relate
It’s basically impossible to not have come across the zodiac at some point in your life. Whether it was a zodiac-focused candle or a conversation with a friend eager to analyze your birth chart, the zodiac signs have permeated into popular culture in the United States. At its root, the zodiac is simple a belt-shaped region of the sky, extending approximately 8° north or south of the ecliptic, which is the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year. This belt include visible planets and the Moon.
These star signs are connected with specific dates of the calendar, and are thought to carry special meaning when it comes to behaviors, personality, mood, and preferences. Each zodiac sign, much like each of our teas, has its own strengths, desires, and characteristics. Additionally, each of the zodiac signs belong to one of the four elements: fire, earth, air and water.
Whether you put much stock in the zodiac or not, let’s see what tea describes you the best. You might just find a new favorite tea!
