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!
