This 24 Seasons Tea subscription is orchestrated by me, Michael Busby, the Tea Peddler. I select and share delicious and energetically on-point teas every six weeks to the rhythm of the traditional Chinese farming calendar.
Writing a letter/scroll to subscribers to accompany each tea-package gives me a chance to share the subtler and sparkier points of tea culture—which for me is always connected to my Taoist lineage practice. As a teacher of qigong and Taoist lifestyle in the Limitless Gate lineage, I appreciate how weaving together seasons and teas lets me express the seasonal, flowing, and often elusive elements of Taoist lifestyle with ease, and without being didactic.
Over the years, the Via Tiempo community has found marking a new season every 15 days to be such a beautiful way to witness gradual change and appreciate each seasonal moment. It opens a completely new layer of tea-drinking, transforming this basic household ritual into a way of cultivating health and connecting to the elements. I hope you’ll give it a try! We have 3 size/frequency options to choose from. Shipping is included in the prices.
