I’ve been interested in astrology ever since my mom introduced us to it when we were little. Astrology was a regular topic of conversation in our household, and I continued learning about it over the years.
One of the things I discovered was that ancient people used to take astrology quite seriously, especially when it came to predicting life events, and healing the body.
To Hippocrates (and others of his time), astrology was a cornerstone of medical practice. Hippocrates was even quoted to say that a doctor who didn’t study astrology had no right to call himself a physician.
Back then, the study of the movements of the stars and planets was serious business, and required a sound knowledge of reading, writing, mathematics and astronomy.
The ancient physicians believed that the stars influenced our lives, and that each zodiac sign was predisposed to certain strengths and vulnerabilities. For example, Aries rules the head, so people born under the sign of Aries are more prone to headaches, fevers, and knocks to the head than people born under other zodiac signs.
Ancient people also believed that, like people, plants were also ruled by the stars and planets. The doctors and scientists of the day assigned astrological meaning to medicinal and food plants based on how the plants look, what they smell and taste like, and how they affect your body.
Now that you’ve gotten a little bit of the backstory of astrology, here are your best teas, according to your sign!

The sign of Aries rules the head and brain. The most beneficial teas for Aries include herbs which are beneficial to brain health, such as ginkgo, gotu kola, and rhodiola. If you're an Aries, your best tea blend is An Elephant Never Forgets, which helps get circulation to the brain, and promotes sharp memory. Aries people have a tendency to be headstrong, and dive into things head-first. If this is you, Ultra Violet can help provide some necessary mental clarity to think things over before taking action.
Earthy Taurus rules the throat, and the thyroid gland. Beneficial herbal teas for Taurus include thyme, sage, and oregano, all great for keeping the throat clear and strong. A pleasant speaking or singing voice is one of the attributes of this sign, and Sniffles tea is the perfect blend that and helps eliminate stubborn mucus from postnasal drip. Ginseng Green Dragon contains adaptogenic herbs that help nourish the endocrine glands, including the thyroid, and keep that earthy energy moving.
The sign of the Twins rules the lungs, nervous system, arms, and hands. If you’ve ever spent time around a Gemini, you will notice that they’re constantly in motion. Herbal teas that support Gemini’s health include lavender, peppermint, and skullcap. Nervous system support is critical, so Daily Calm tea and Nitey Nite can help a Gemini slow down and relax. Elderberry Tonic contains botanicals that support the lungs, which Geminis will want to keep healthy all year long.
The nurturing sign of Cancer rules the stomach and, in women, the breasts. Astrologers believe that Cancerians hold all their worry in the stomach, making them prone to indigestion, gas, and nausea. Excellent herbal teas for the Cancerian often include slippery elm, gymnema, and chamomile. Aromatic Digestive can take care of bloating, and Stomach Soother Tea will help heal issues caused by too much acid or irritation. If you’re an emotional eater, Sleek & Slender helps cut sugar cravings, and helps the digestive system work more efficiently.
Leo rules the heart, and the spine. Generosity and big-heartedness (heart attributes) are hallmarks of the sign of Leo, along with the quality of courage (spine). Herbal teas to help Leo stay healthy are hawthorn, hibiscus, and cayenne. To keep the heart healthy, the Leo should drink plenty of I Heart Pomegranates, loaded with heart-healthy herbs and berries, and Cranberry Apple Tart, which helps to keep blood pressure levels in check. If Leo is experiencing issues with high cholesterol, Coffee Quitter can help to normalize blood fats.
Cancer rules the stomach, but Virgo rules the colon and intestines. Virgos tend to store their stress in the digestive tract, showing up as IBS, constipation, or bloating. Tonic herbal teas for Virgos include fennel, spearmint, and lemon verbena. Aromatic Digestive is ideal for the Virgo who struggles with bloating after meals. Teas that help Virgo deal with stress are important, and one of the best choices is Inflammation Relief, which soothes inflammation in the intestines, and also helps calm feelings of stress. Anxiety Relief will also provide stress relief and promote feelings of calm; this tea contains peppermint, giving Virgo an immediate sensation of feel-good.
The sign of Libra is associated with the kidneys, lower back, and the glandular system, all of which are important elements in keeping the body in balance, which is what Libra is all about. Librans can benefit from drinking teas that contain these herbs: nettle leaf, hibiscus, and rose. To keep the kidneys in tip top shape, Daily Detox helps support the health of the kidneys as well as the liver. The sign of Libra is associated with beauty, and Happy Place tea promotes naturally beautiful skin by by providing antioxidants and relieving inflammation.
Scorpio rules the reproductive system, so teas that support hormone balance and fertility are all good picks for this sign. Some of the best teas for Scorpio include raspberry leaf, ginseng, and green tea. Scorpios can also benefit from teas like Go Chai, which supports circulation, and Ginseng Green Dragon, for energy and balance. Because Scorpios love a little mystery, a smoky tea like Campfire Chai will appeal to their love of the unique and exotic, while also providing antioxidants and support for blood sugar balance.
The sign of the Archer rules the liver, so teas that help the body cleanse and detox are beneficial for Sagittarians. The best herbal teas to add to their daily routine include milk thistle, dandelion root, and turmeric. Smooth Jazz is a delicious tea that supports the liver without being bitter or unpleasant. Because Sagittarians are always on the go, Lucky Morning Spice helps keep the joints healthy by keeping the body cleansed, and flexible. Lucky Morning Spice contains turmeric, another liver herb, along with energizing black tea, and spices.
This sign rules the knees, as well as the bones, and teeth. Mineral-rich herbal teas are especially helpful for Capricorns: raspberry leaf, horsetail, oatstraw, and rooibos. Moroccan Rose Mint is wonderful for maintaining dental health. Green teas and herbal teas are much better than coffee when it comes to having healthy bones and teeth. Berry-rich teas like Strawberry Kiss and Uber-Berry are all great choices for this sign.
This zodiac sign rules the calves, ankles, and circulatory system. Aquarians who spend a lot of time on their feet might experience soreness in the legs, or swollen ankles. It’s important for Aquarians to support healthy blood flow in order to avoid things like varicose veins, leg pain, or water retention. Teas that contain cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and other spices are ideal for Aquarians. Chocomaya Chai and Lady Ginger both promote healthy circulation, which is so important for this sign. Aquarians can sometimes live in their heads, so teas like Hug In A Mug tea can anchor their restless spirit with a feeling of calm.
The sign of the fish rules the feet, and the lymphatic system. Cleansing herbal teas are important for Pisces, and often include red clover, cleavers, and plantain. Pisceans are thought to be one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac, and Lush Lavender tea is dreamy and soothing. Detox Chai tea supports the lymphatic system, which is important to this sign. Echinacea is an important herb for the lymphatic system, along with calendula and cleavers.
