Mourning Herbal Tea


In the Victorian era, it was customary for families to go through elaborate rituals to commemorate their dead. There were three distinct mourning periods: deep mourning or full mourning, second mourning, and half-mourning. The length of time for each period would depend on the relationship with the deceased. No one would ever think of telling a mourner that they had grieved long enough or that they should hurry up and get over it; unfortunately this is often what is told to mourners today. Over the years, we have become a society that does not want to think or talk about death, and we have become less tolerant of peoples’ grief. One of the most important things we can learn from the Victorians is their openness in talking about and planning for death. It does not need to be the focus of our lives as it was then, but we do need to have more of these important conversations, hold space for those grieving, and allow ourselves whatever time it takes to fully grieve a loss.

Naturally darkened to almost black with activated charcoal to represent the wearing of all black during the mourning period, with traditional funerary flowers of lilac, rose & jasmine, warmth of poplar bud, cinnamon, coriander, black pepper & gunpowder tea, with a touch of solitary heart holding hawthorn berry, cedarwood bark & juniper berries.

A little goes a long way, allow this deeply rich & nourishing herbal tea to envelop yourself in your grief, to experience it and fully live it, rather than push it away.
