Badb’s Tea was created in response to recent events in the United States related to the devastating reversal of women’s rights.
Badb or Badhbh (Modern Irish, pronounced [BAH-V]) is a war goddess who often takes the form of a hooded crow and sometimes the shape of an old woman. In some texts, she is said to appear as a beautiful tall, fair skinned woman. She is known as Badb Catha or battle crow. Her skill is to cause fear and confusion among opposing soldiers as she (and her cohorts) work to move the tide of battle in their favor. Badb is most often thought of as an aspect of the Morrigan, with this she and the Morrigan are the same and yet they are not. There are many possible reasons for this, but I will not go into it in this article. Like most Pagan deities, the Morrigan and Badb are not one-sided. They have many aspects which make up the whole.
