Sofia Epoch - Organically Grown Tea Blends
LIMITED EDITION HERBAL TISANE GROWN ORGANICALLY ON THE SOUTH COAST OF NSW
Loosely translated from Greek, Sofia Epoch means wisdom of the seasons. We are guided by the energies of the seasonal, moon and daily cycles in the growing, processing and making of our offerings.
The Elements Tisanes is a series of four botanical teas - Earth, Air, Fire and Water, composed to work with a specific part of nature’s great cycle which we see in the change of seasons over a year, the same pattern repeating in a single day or a month. The tisanes can be enjoyed anytime of the year or day but each tea does have energetic and physical properties which are most resonant with its corresponding timings and thus when the teas may be most beneficial.
Syncing to our own bodies rhythms and the greater planetary cycles puts us in a state of flow, aligning to natural sequences of energy and connecting us to something deeper
