Armenian Tea

Philosophy

Herbalist.jpgHistory relates that during the reign of Sayat-Nova the language of herbs and flowers was as important to handsome people. Like the recognizable scent of a particular flower, plant or perhaps a scented tissue sent its own unique message that were used in a medieval songs by introducing the "voice from the bottom of the heart" or "the wishes of soul". Flowers adorned almost everything, including expressions of emotion and willingness. They would convey messages of love or dislike depending upon which ones were given, as if a young man could either please a lady by his gift of flowers or poems of ARMENIANTEA® friendship (legend of Violet and Linden).

Especially in medieval time Flowers and Herbs had a silent meaning of their very own, and could "say" what was not dared to be spoken. Even the manner in which herbals were sent had a special meaning. Those traditions of "petals of life" were transferred from generation to generation through manuscripts and songs, legend and poems. Ancient Armenian ASHUG Sayat-Nova was one of the singers of love similar to a Gealalledi Rummy's that was turned into the philosophical movement of the Mevlevi Order.

Sayat-Nova with his language of flower, explains how people could learn that "ROSES" symbolized love and each color had its own meaning; or "LILAC" that symbolized beauty, but different varieties had diversified meanings. The intrigue of secret messages sent this way, became a popular pastime. Today, when man finds that it is difficult to express his true feelings, the language of Sayat-Nova or Herbal & Flower may help us to express our wishes and thoughts. "How do I say I love you?" or "I want to be your friend" or "You are special." If one is gifted in such a way, he could compose a song, or write a poem. Or, he could do something much easier and more significant by giving ARMENIANTEA or by drinking ANCIENT HERBALS with friends and family.

Herbs and flowers have had also religious and symbolic meanings, and still do today; most people associate the giving of flowers with romance. References are made to flowers, herbs and plants in Biblical times, and during the Middle Ages; herbs were even believed by some to have magical powers. In accepting these, herbs and flowers had a pride of place in the royal gardens.
