As the September wind holds onto the fading memories of summer, we’re all waiting for fall to quietly paint the world in vivid oranges and reds. Honestly, the colors might be the only thing that might catch the hardworking Virgo’s attention away from their work.
The beautiful Virgos in our life, and we’re sure in your life too, are always neck deep into work. Multitasking is intuitive and extremely detail oriented in everything that you do. Rolling up their sleeves when it time comes to grind is their go-to move. And we, at Nepal Tea Collective, understand how important that energy is. And we’re here to deliver the most premium quality loose-leaf tea from Nepal for you.
The signature Virgo labor reminds us of what Nepali teas are all about. Nepali tea makers pour their soul and heart into the craft of tea making. So here’s a bit of info on Virgo mythology before the grand reveal of our recommendation!
Virgo : The maiden
Virgo the Maiden is the largest of the zodiac constellations in the sky. Virgo personifies Persephone, the harvest goddess. According to a Greek myth, it once was always springtime on Earth. But then the god of the underworld, Hades, kidnapped Persephone.
Persephone’s mother Demeter, overcome with grief, abandoned her role as an Earth goddess. The world’s fruitfulness and fertility suffered. According to the myth, Earth wouldn’t become fruitful again until Persephone returned home. Zeus insisted that Hades return Persephone to Demeter. Zeus also said that Persephone must eat nothing until her return. Alas, Hades purposely gave Persephone a pomegranate.
Thus, Persephone (because of the pomegranates) had to return to her mother, but she has to return to the Underworld for four months every year (to this day). Spring returns to the Northern Hemisphere (when Persephone is reunited with her mother), and winter reigns when Persephone lives in the Underworld.
From the perspective of the Northern Hemisphere, Virgo is absent from the early evening sky in late autumn, winter, and early spring. Virgo’s return to the sky at nightfall – in the months of April and May – coincides with the season of spring.
For this very reason, we’ve paired the maiden sign with Nepal Tea Collective’s spring-emulating tea blend Kathmandu Cosmos. We thought the match would be perfect for its caffeine content and firework-like flavors.
We genuinely considered recommending Spring Oolong but didn’t because it felt a bit too obvious. So Virgo’s you get two world-class Nepali teas to choose from. If anyone has the ability to do it, it is you folks!
Kathmandu Cosmos is an ayurvedic herbal storm; a slow yet flavorful rise, It is packed with herbs and spices. It is a light show you can taste without the noise and the crowd. This tea tastes the fireworks of a myriad of spices like ginger, black cardamom, lemongrass, cinnamon leaves as well as orange peels without getting overwhelmed. Everything is a sweet lull that freshens up the palate for your dreams.
The flavors in combination with the black tea’s caffeine rush will have the appreciation of beauty Virgos celebrating.
