Can you hear the call of the pipes on the winds winding through the forest? Light feet dancing here and there, but you’re unsure of exactly where?
A lovely green cup, reminiscent of the light filtered through summer’s high green canopy. Mint carries Pan’s music to your ears, whilst the marshmallow and apple entices you to stay a while, no maybe longer, just a bit longer. Lavender ties it together, offering a woody essence to the blend.
Offer a cup up to Pan Himself, share with Him, or simply enjoy!
You can find Pan’s tea here, and find other devotional teas here
