announced just a few weeks ago that I had started working at David's Tea. Not long after, a nearby fire severely damaged the location that I was working at. Being out of a job for 9 to 12 weeks was just not an option so I had to look for other opportunities. Having spent the better part of this year applying to every tea company under the sun, I was not looking forward to pounding pavement again. As luck would have it, one found me on LinkedIn in the form of a recruiter for Kusmi Tea.
Starting in October I'll be working in a new shop for their sister brand, Løv Organic, in the Gansevoort Market. They specialize in premium organic teas and herbal infusions. I'm really excited to be part of their launch here in the U.S. Another new chapter has started and much sooner than I thought. Tea has been my passion for so long and this year it was goal to turn that passion into something more. I feel blessed to have had the opportunities that I've had so far. I'm also incredibly grateful for all of the support I've received from friends in the tea community. Their words of encouragement were all that kept me going some days.
