Shanahan Grand Cha - It's a Shanahan Thing

Shanahan Grand ChaNot to be confused with Chai (Confused? Yeah!  We Shanahan's are a complicated bunch).THE beautiful and strong Irish Breakfast Blend at Asteria Tea Co.F-Bombs + Tea :  That basically sums up this amazing Irish Breakfast blend (and me, incidentally). Previously (and lovingly) referred to as Shanaha-nigans Whiney Little Bitch.  You know, for that whiney little bitch in your life, like my cousin Brayden ;)I created and named this tea in dedication to some of the wildest and most beautiful people I know!  Shanahan Grand Cha is our namesake tea and it embodies a full flavoured, strong, hot-headed fierceness that is my family.  End off it's natural boldness with a beautiful floral note: we're intense but we love hard.

Tea For Today - 3:17 pm Momma Fix

Hello All, I will start to post a post (hopefully) daily dedicated to, of course tea! TEA!  It'll be an overview of each tea available at Asteria Tea Company.  A description, pictures, reviews.  Hopefully you will enjoy the stories behind each blend, every single one of them has been created by me via curiosity and experimentation (on my kids and my man).  Enjoy! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today - we will start from the beginnings of beginnings.

Today's Tea: The Real Slim Shanny Today's Sound: Elle King Macklemore   Asteria's Skinny tea.  A light herbal detox tea, great with honey.  Amazing hot and amazing cold - as is most of my tea here at Asteria Tea Co.  It's important that none of it ever tastes bad cold....because who drinks all their tea all at once?  NOT THIS GIRL.  It's bound to be cold before I'm ever done the pot.  It's what happens when I have a billion and a half things...

International Women's Day and more...so so much more.

My life as I know it. MY life has a soundtrack and a tea-track.  Today I take time to celebrate the woman in me and all of my women.  The woman in you and all of your women. Did I mention, of course, I have a tea for that. Today I celebrate with a little extra sugar.  A little bath (filled shallow with water I hauled...with water I boiled).  The little extra sugar did not come in the form of water because we live in Grasmere.  One of the driest places I've ever known.  The extra extra sugar still to come (keep reading). I praised the water I brought and gave thanks because water is the precious elixir of all...
