I originally created this tea last October in honor of Lakshmi who is celebrated during Deepavali, the Hindu festival of lights. During this time she is invited into homes in the hopes that she will share good fortune with those who live there.
Her story tells us that she was born fully grown on a lotus flower and rose up from a milky sea. Milk is often used as an offering to her. The reason for the addition of the creamer to the tea. It creates a milky goodness as it steeps.
On our label I depicted Lakshmi as offering a cup of tea and she wears jewels that correspond to the 7 chakras. She is of course seated on her lotus flower. The koi fish swimming beneath the lotus flower symbolize perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose.
Think of prosperity, good fortune and abundance when you drink this. Who couldn't use a little more of that in life?
