Water Element Teas


“Based on traditional Chinese medical theory, two of our major organs, the liver and gallbladder, belong to the Wood element. The energy of these two organs moves just like Wood. The liver and gallbladder don’t like to be stuck, but rather to be smooth and cathartic. Wood can smoothly grow lots of leaves and flowers, which matches the nature of the liver and gallbladder.

The Water element supports the Wood element, so Water element teas are always good for giving energy to Wood element organs. Ancient artisan moonlight white tea is a typical Water element tea. It’s been processed with the simplest and smoothest tea processing method. It receives little human influence during processing, and is always dried under shade and by a natural breeze, so it carries a very smooth, natural energy.

In spring, the weather is warming up. Everything starts growing, making it the season when our liver and gallbladder need to create lots of energy to support the ‘growing’ energy in our own bodies. In this season, we need the Water element teas to support our Wood element organs.”
