Magickal Properties and Correspondences of Tea and Coffee

In most cultures, it is common to frequently consume warm beverages throughout the day, especially in the mornings.

Like everything in the physical world, there is a huge potential for magickal involvement and daily practice with these items no matter if it is tea or coffee.

How to Turn Tea into a Magical Potion

As a quick example of how you can make your beverage consumption more magickal, think of bringing in more purposeful intention during the creation and consumption of your drink. Think of your preparation almost the same way that you would something like a spell jar. 

Ask yourself:

  • What are the ingredients going into your beverage and what sort of magickal properties do these contain?
  • Do the ingredients you are working with match your intent for the day?
  • If not, is this the right beverage “potion” for your day?

Then, once your brew has been concocted and ready to consume, try your best to dedicate a few minutes with it to set your intention.

One way that I have found to be helpful is to revisit the classic exercise of creating a ball of healing energy in the palm of your hands. Let that energy and intention find its way to your beverage before consuming.

A witch tip to share on social media

Witch-Tip: Use a dedicated wooden spoon to stir your beverage three times clockwise as you set your intention.

You can also use this as a great mindfulness exercise. Really sit and appreciate what you have made. Take a moment to really internalize the taste and texture of your drink.

Sometimes environmental factors and personal feelings can change the common properties and correspondences of an ingredient so it’s good to do some research to see how it impacts you.
