Most people think that being an astronomy major means I know astrology. I frequently get asked if I can read people horoscopes, or look at their palms, or analyze their tea leaves. Well, I don’t know anything about those…but I do like to drink tea.
Everyone around the world drinks tea, a tastier alternative to coffee with significantly fewer calories than hot chocolate. From green teas to black teas to herb teas, the possibility and tastes are endless! Next time you pass by Teavana, let your horoscope determine what type of tea you should drink.
Aries (March 21–April 20): Matcha Tea Latte
Only an adventurous Aries would dare drink something as…green…as this tea. Made up of powdered green tea leaves, matcha provides almost as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. Bored by basic chai tea, an Aries would never shy away from exploring a new taste.
Taurus (April 21–May 21): Pumpkin Spice Tea
There truly is pumpkin spice–flavored everything. Even though it is only offered in the fall, a Taurus is patient enough to wait for this seasonal delicacy. Not to be confused with its coffee cousin, the pumpkin spice latte, this tea contains all of the holiday spices we know and love, without being tainted by the bitterness of coffee.
Gemini (May 22–June 21): Fruit Tea
Fruity, berry teas are the perfect choice for a versatile Gemini. Every cup can be something different: passion fruit one day, blueberry the next. The flexible mood of a Gemini can be accompanied by any berry tea.
Cancer (June 22–July 22): Chamomile Tea
Cancers are much more cautious than their Aries friends, and are less likely to venture out to try something as exotically colored. Instead, they opt for a calming, Chamomile Tea. It has a classic taste that is universally liked, no hidden surprises.
Leo (June 23–August 21): Bubble Teas
Leos needs a tea that matches his or her creativity, which is why bubble tea is perfect. From traditional milk teas to exotic fruity flavors, the variety of bubble teas are endless! And that doesn’t even cover the different types of boba that can be matched with each tea flavor. It would be a crime for a Gemini to be confined to one type of tea.
Virgo (August 22–September 23): Black Coffee
Yeah yeah, I know this isn’t tea… but when it comes down to it, a person drinks tea either to warm up and/or ingest caffeine. A practical Virgo realizes that they might as well drink cheap, black, coffee than waste time on frilly tea. All basic needs are met, besides taste.
Libra (September 23–October 24): Peppermint Tea
The perfect natural flavor-to-sweetness-ratio, peppermint teas are the balance that a Libra craves. Neither too bitter nor too sweet, this tea is great for all occasions: waking up, going to bed, and even studying.
Scorpio (October 24–November 22): Chai Tea Lattes
Scorpios, while secretive on the outside, are known to be very passionate and powerful on the inside. The Chai tea latte is the perfect match. Unsuspecting and plain on the outside, no one would expect the powerful spices and flavor that is packed into one cup.
Sagittarius (November 23–December 22): Very Berry Hibiscus
Good natured and optimistic, a Sagittarius deserves a drink that brings happiness. Nothing does this quite like the Very Berry Hibiscus tea from Starbucks. A reminder of summer and everything wonderful in life, nothing brings greater joy than this tea. Check out this recipe to DIY.
Capricorn (December 23–January 20): Water
Capricorns bear enough wisdom to know it isn’t safe to develop a caffeine dependence. Yes, these are the people that drink water only because it is necessary to our health.
Aquarius (January 21–February 19): English Breakfast Tea
Black teas such as this are known for their rich, wholesome flavor, the perfect drink for an honest and loyal Aquarius. No surprise flavors or extra chemicals. Just the leaves and some hot water.
Pisces (February 20–March 20): Organic Teas
The selfless and kind Pisces worries about the environment and their health. They altruistically choose to drink organic teas that are good for them and the environment around them!
