children of lir

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Lindsay Lock
Part of my mytholotea series. The Children of Lir is an Irish legend that starts with Bodb Derg being eleceted as king. Wanting to appease his rival, Lir, Bodb gave one of his daughters, Aoibh, to Lir to marry. They were very happy together and she bore Lir four children - one daughter and three sons. Sadly, Aoibh died. Wanting to keep Lir happy, Bodb sent another of his daughters, Aoife, to Lir to marry. Aoife was jealous of Lir's affection for his children and plotted to get rid of them. One day while Aoife was traveling with the children, she decided to solve her problems by using her magical powers to turn the children into swans. The children were cursed to spend 900 years as swans before finally being turned back into humans and perishing of old age soon after. Suggested brewing instructions: 212 for 3 mins.
