Inspired by the arts of scrying & divination, Scryer’s Cup captures the essence of the sacred wisdom embodied in nature, wisdom which manifests itself to those who are willing to take to time to look.
We started with Young Hyson green tea leaves. The name Hyson defines how this tea is processed and the age at which the leaves are picked. The name Hyson means “before the rains.” Young Hyson produces a golden cup that is full-bodied with a hint of natural sweetness.
To this we added rose and jasmine flowers, two of the most revered and mysterious flowers in all occulted study. Although chosen for their flavor profiles, it should come as no surprise that energetically these flowers resonate with each other and are teachers amongst the plant kingdoms.
Universally appealing, roses evoke the evanescence of innocence and youth, enwreathes victors, memorializes martyrs, and are woven into flags of nations and the banners of royal bloodlines.
For alchemists, the entire process of psychic transformation takes place sub rosa (under the rose) and speaks to the silence necessary to the interior nature of the work concealed within its petals, or one’s mind.
For Pythagoreans, the rose symbolizes the pentagram, for Wild Roses (the first of the roses) had five petals. Ruled by the water and the moon, Rose is used is used in any magical art involving love, psychic work, and divination.
Hailing from the far east Jasmine is regarded among most mystical of all flowers. Its very name which comes from Persia means fragrance. Delicate, floral, & intoxicating Jasmine blooms in the evening giving it the nickname “Queen of the Night.” Among witches, Jasmine is known for its excellent divination properties, especially when blended with green tea.
