Tea + Google = Dream Job

So, I posted about this earlier on Facebook. It's been in the works for a couple of months now, but I just got my official start day in an email earlier today, and I wanted to share the news with my Icrontic family!

I'M THE NEW FACE OF TEA AT GOOGLE!

For a long time I've been really passionate about tea in all its works, and now I've lucked in to my absolute DREAM job. I will be running classes and tastings, and hand picking tea to share with the employees of Google, and running their brand new tea lounge. My office is going to be a zen garden with a skylight. A SKYLIGHT, GUYS!

I really do want to bring tea culture to America, because as it stands most people associate it with their grandmother's chintzy china, or their daughter's doll house… But it's just such an amazing plant, with such a rich and interesting history, and I think it's time that tea was a real part of the conversation.

And Google agrees with me.

This is the first step, and I'm so SO excited!

    You can send me samples you need opinions on. Don't forget the aged white cheddar that is almost too crumbly!

    Congrats! Seems like you have really loved tea and bringing the joy of tea to others.

    Super!

    When I saw your Job title added to your Facebook earlier, I was certain it was a joke, like that's not a real thing, this is Terin saying that this would be just about the perfect thing for her if it existed, but it doesn't exist. I felt sorry for your friends who thought you were serious, but it's like actually a real thing, and I SuperLove that it's a real thing, and that you get to do it.

    Quite.

    Thank you so much! I waffled back and fourth on whether or not to tell everyone about this, because I feel super undeserving of such an awesome opportunity… But the amount of support and congratulations that I've gotten over the news has been overwhelming and has made me feel so much more confident about myself and what I can do. No one has responded with surprise, but so many people have responded with "you deserve this", and that's been wonderful to hear.

    Icrontea party to celebrate? :D

    This sounds awesome! Congrats Terin!

    I'd work a much crappier job if my office was a zen garden.

    September 14th, and I'm definitely going to try and swing it… Also, if Icrontea Party '16 is a thing, it'll be the most majestic thing your human eyes could witness without dying of it afterward.
