Tea Tasting Ritual

As part of the #Shuffle summer exhibition at Herrick gallery, tea tasting ritual event took place on Sunday 4 September 2016. The attendees sampled herbal blends of red clover, chamomile, linden blossom, meadowsweet, peppermint and rose hips.  Presented medicinal herbs were sourced in the rural areas of Ukraine, Latvia, Italy and the UK.  The discussion revolved around the history and aspects of ritual in daily life,  history of shamanism, and the effects of art onto the viewer through the prism of the alleged medicinal properties of represented herbs.
