My Tea Journey

Welcome to Just Another Tea Blog. My name is Shad Chancey and I love exploring the vast world of tea. I come from a craft brewing background that began in 2007. I submerged myself into learning the art of brewing craft beer. I ended up moving to Boulder, Colorado in 2012 and opened my own craft brewery in Longmont, Colorado called Grossen Bart Brewery. I loved the world of craft beer and attended the Great American Beer Festival for five years in a row. In November of 2016 I decided I’d had enough alcohol in this lifetime and put the plug in the jug.

I turned over my half of the brewery to my business partner in 2017 and moved back to my hometown Austin, Texas. Grossen Bart Brewery is still thriving and pouring pints to this day! I turned my focus on non-alcoholic brewing in 2018 and formed Sharp-Wit Brewing. A Non-Alcoholic approach to Craft Beer. Each one of our batches is tested by the TABC to make sure it is below .5% alc. Brewing NA beer is very tricky and time consuming. Our Newton’s 3rd Law IPA and Occam’s Oatmeal Razor Stout are nearly perfected!

The beautiful vast world of tea is quite complex and intriguing to me. I am now 100% dedicated to learning all I can about this magical elixir. I aim to use this blog as a reference to easily track and pinpoint all my favorite teas, learn from other tea enthusiasts, and make some new friends along the way! Bottoms up!
